„Desires, Ambitions“ (Dreiecksbeziehung)
„Desires, Ambitions“ is a soundtrack to the final scene of Jibran Khan’s short film „The Encounter“. Filmed in black-and-white and set in the night, the scene consists of the main character’s eponymous encounter and his nostalgic monologue, as he walks away in the night. The composition consists of a theme at the beginning, improvised passage in the middle, and the ending cadenza. Thematic material is a melodic interpretation of the „Dream“, the dark opening sequence that represents rather a sound design work than a musical piece. Also, the sampled slides could be heard before. This time however, instead of inducing surreal anxiety they serve as a calm transition after quiet narrative played on the electric guitar.
Instrumentation: guitars, synthesizers, sampler, electronics
