"Shorts" was a great experience. The film had several stories following different characters that were connected to each other in one way or another. We split the score work between Robert Rodriguez, composer George Oldziey, and myself. We each wrote music for particular stories so each story had it's own sound and feel. I didn't want our limited resources to translate into an unconvincing score, so I searched for an instrumentalpalette that had a full, realistic sound, in spite of it being mostly MIDI driven. I ended up using a lot of melodic percussion instruments such as vibraphones and xylophones to accomplish that, plus they added a very fun sound to the score. Shorts is available on Netflix!
