Randy and the Mob
After my first meeting with Ray and Walt, I walked away thinking about an early 20th century rural post-ragtime score. A handful of musicians playing banjo, fiddle, clarinet, and wash-tub bass, as the core ensemble, and embellishing the sound from there. We created a theme for Tino with a string quartet to add a sense of class to him. Then melodies performed on banjo, clarinet and fiddle to keep us in the film. Randy also had a theme that grew out of the piece we used over the title sequence. This piece easily be performed as "good-time" music, or a reflective melancholy depending on it's interpretation, all to support Randy's obsessive self involvement.
