When Fawm began I wanted to compose at least piece of music that involved cinematic story telling that intertwined a story and sound so closely that their creation would influence each other.
I first wrote a very short story of a scene and made notes of how I would film it and then composed music for the scene.
-Incantation of the Tempestarii-
A loud explosion is heard and a rift opens up in the middle of a city square made of stone cobble.
The year is 2025. The Earth suffers from a massive drought. The Sun shines brightly and there are no clouds in the sky.
Large buildings tower over head and passersby look at the strangely dressed woman who walked out of the rift and now stands before them. She is the Tempestarii.
Scene transition sound cuts to a group of peace officers who are having a nice afternoon coffee break with each other represented by a warm pad.
Their cell phones ring with an emergency alert.
They stand up and the staccato strings symbolize their sense of duty as they march off to the scene of the alert. A distant sound of thunder is heard.
Scene transition sound cuts to the city square. A large crowd has now gathered and is watching the Tempestarii in the center.
The Tempestarii dances and chants and waves her hands all over. Everyone is transfixed by her movements.
Suddenly the clouds gather and thunder continues to roll in.
There is a feeling in the crowd of a loss of control as the hands of the Tempestarii crackle with energy.
The intensity in the air drops for a second of silence. She finishes her chant.
Thunder booms and a storm of rain falls upon the world. The onlookers are mesmerized by the experience.
The Tempestarii begins to dance once more. The peace officers and the bystanders don't know what to make of it as they are confused.
She looks into the crowd, her long hair dangling in the air like noodles, she then smiles and says one word.
Suddenly the rift opens again and the Tempestarii steps into it and vanishes.
A slow steady rain falls in her absence. The Earth feels rejuvenated.
