Comedy Time

Last week, February 20th,  I had the pleasure to record a comedy cue. The orchestration included a string ensemble, clarinet, bassoon and guitar. Since one can't get into the way of dialogue, the music had to be kind of sparse and the strings play mostly pizzicato to give it a light feel. 

On this session, I actually wrote too much music. 

The cue was supposed to end after Sandra Bullock climbs down the letter. However, this felt incomplete to me and I transitioned into the next sequence. My instructor and me were both worried that we could record both parts in just the 15 minutes we were given.  

We are both German speakers. So, when it actually worked out - I just needed to tell him, that I actually got my EXTRAWURST (a German word for a special treatment that someone insists on).
