We used 2 programs to create the sound track. The first was Soundtrack Pro, which is part of the Final Cut Studio package. We used this for all of the sound effects and diagetic sounds (such as the ambient noise from the forest and the gun shot), and I used Logic Pro to create the music at home. Logic Pro is a professional quality audio and MIDI sequencing program used for recording and producing almost every type/genre of music.
In Logic, I used 7 software instrument tracks (controlled by MIDI) and one audio track, which was the SFX track created in Soundtrack. Unfortunately, I did not have the video file of the actual opening as it had not been exported from Final Cut yet, so I had to create the music with just the sound effects track as a reference to the timings of the flashbacks and character’s movements, but it worked out well in the end.
I think the sound of the crow cawing works very well with the music, even though it was not intentionally added; it was just part of the ambient outdoor sound. Overall, I think the two parts of the soundtrack (effects and music) blend together seamlessly, and the end result sounds almost like a real film score.
