"There were only 2 scenes that needed original score in the film Colby. These were crucial in being able to lift and portray a deeper feeling and understanding of the character. The first cue starts with a somber and bitterness. This then develops into spontaneous freedom, which I portrayed with the use of live gospel male vocals and ethinc flutes, this uplifting feeling soon mellows again though as her reality sets in.
