From 1929, the best documentary film of all time "Man With a Movie Camera" by Dziga Vertov, with my new score made in 2014. https://vimeo.com/110899525 The score includes acoustic and electronic music, paralleling the film's juxtapositions of the natural world and the industrial world. Musical references are international in scope and include South Asian classical music on sarod and electric sarod, hip hop, North African beats on darboukeh and bendir, 808 beats, analog and digital synthesizers, palm wine guitar music, psychedelic rock and dub. #film #filmMusic #silentfilm #manwithamoviecamera #music #musicvideo #seattle #score #jameswhetzel

Greensleeves as it was meant to sound. Obviously! ;) Sarod, dhol and bass with accordion and mandolin and additional percussion completing the sarod and beats ensemble. Suggestions of garba in the rhythm...
