Working with Patrick felt very open and collaborative. I had such a specific style of music and tone I was going for. He did what any great collaborator does: takes the initial direction and brings his own ideas to it, to create something valuable. I particularly enjoyed how his knowledge and use of traditional instruments, and methods of creating unique sounds worked together to get the score to it’s most compelling place. His work on my film, left the audience with the emotion of its sound resonating in their minds long after the film ended.
