The Other Woman
After reading the book, which had an enormous amount of information that was supplied through internal dialogue, I knew the music was going to have to be very vocal in what was happening on the screen. Don, David and I agreed that I should start by scratching out very rough piano demos that would have chords and melody to find the strongest content that would stay with you no matter how stripped down it was. After we found our themes, we spread them out over the orchestra in different ways. We recorded three different pianos to perform all the melodies. In several places we used a nine-foot Yamaha Grand from The Village, where we mixed. Adding to that, an octave up, my 1911 upright, as well as my Arp 2600. We also got to use my old Space Echo, which added a lot of character to the Celesta, making it slightly out of tune all the time.
