As some of you may know, Dirty Harry is one of my favourite movies and also one of my favourite film scores.
When I first saw the movie in my teens, I was obsessed with Lalo Schifrin‘s score.
In the late 90′s I experimented with an AM Frequencies “re-score”/tribute to the film’s music. For that, I attempted to re-score scenes from the film using turntables, samples and some composed music.
With this remix/re-work, I just had the film and the score in mind, and tried to appropriate “Suspicion” into something that sounded akin to Schifrin’s score.
I did a lot of experimenting during mixing to create that vintage aura I was after; saturated, hissy and to sound like it was from the 70′s.
I also pulled a great bass tone that I was really happy with.
It was so good that Nick Soole asked me to record the exact same sound and playing style for a film he was scoring.
I’m really happy with how this one turned out.
So happy, I’m thinking I might go back to the late 90′s tribute I made and re-work it, writing my own music inspired by the original score and film.
