Swing Low Sweet Supertease!
So, a while back, I was scoring this supertease for a certain show (that will remain nameless). The idea was that one of the cast members was singing the song, "Swing Low Sweet Chariot," and as she sang, the supertease grew from fun and playful to dark and dramatic. This cast member sang under the entire thing and I scored to her singing, climaxing to a dramatic ending.
UNFORTUNATELY, the supertease got bumped in favor of a "FUN" supertease that played up all the "FUN" of the season instead of the drama. So my cue got bumped as well. Since the supertease didn't go to air, I'm not allowed to show it, or I would be fined $1 million or something like that. However, there's nothing that says I can't share the music I wrote for it.
It plays a lot more dramatic with the sound bites and images on screen, but I think you'll get the picture when you listen. Check it out and let me know what you think of it.
