Music Composers Unite!
This video is footage from a street car on Market street San Francisco right before the 1906 earthquake. I've always been drawn to this footage since I first saw it and wanted to create the soundtrack for the footage which is titled "Calm Before the Storm." The musical focus is not at all literal in terms of a period piece, but is rather focussed on the everday/calm nature of the normal day that it was shot. It's also a very surreal feeling watching the footage knowing what was to come and I wanted to bring that "surreal/ethereal" feeling out in the composition as well.
