I really enjoy writing music for a variety of projects and recently I got a chance to do that for a short animation for our church. I got to work with my children in the creation process, too.
Asher Pope did the animation. I did not know just how much work animation is! He landed on something simple, but classy. Then we recorded Zach Fulginiti for the narration, I wrote the music bed, and Elliot (my son) wrote the string quartet parts. Late one night this week, I set up the mics and recorded my children playing the string parts. They are subtle, but really add to the vibe. My hat's off to Elliot!
Plus, it's great to see one historical aspect of our church so clearly. Enjoy:
