When planning to release the score for Two Balloons, I felt like it needed some extra material . . . after all, the score and the film itself are only nine minutes long.
One day the thought just popped into my head, I’ll turn the score into a techno song! I had never made anything that could be considered ‘techno’, but I’ve been developing more of an interest in that world of incessant, pulsing, heavy rhythm.
I didn’t want to simply make a remix that recycles the original recordings from the score, so I set about recording an entirely new piece of music that incorporates the main melodic themes from the score.
The film Two Balloons centers around Bernard and Elba — two ring-tailed lemurs. I was imagining maybe one day these two find themselves at some underground techno club, and this track comes on and makes for a romping good dance party . . . TECHNO FOR LEMURS!
