Jason Bentley: Okay, well here we are in the Santa Monica at Critical Mass Studios. A friend of mine named Tobias Enhus is a composer here. And regarding the Twilight's Remix, I was initially contacted by the film company putting up this movie Twilight, which seems to have a tremendous buzz and I was not aware really of how big this project is. But they wanted to do as a promotional marketing piece, a remix companion to a particular score queue, so essentially taking a theme from the film and having it remixed. And I have done remixes over the years for a lot of different artists.
This is a very specific type of project though. Since it's a remix of a film queue and in a lot of ways a romantic theme, it presents a lot of unique challenges in how we approach it because it's not something that necessarily is going into a dance club or is going to be played by a DJ. It's more of a promotional thing and then it's based on a film score, which is very different from a pop song, or something more specific like that. So it's based around a melody. So that's been some of the challenge.
But anyway I wanted to work with a friend of mine, Tobias, on this project and he has a specific skill set that I felt would bring a lot to this project in particular. So here we are at Critical Mass and we are going to head down to the studio space and talk a bit with Tobias and really break down the whole session and what we did to the original queue, which is composed by I should say, a composer named Carter Burwell is the composer of the Twilight film score. So this is a specific queue, it's a romantic queue, and it's called Bella's Lullaby. So let's take a look, we are going to head down to Tobias' Studio.
