A year or so later, in 1996, Gavin was back, this time requiring some
music for a short documentary film on the WestPac Rescue Helicopter.
Again, he had a strong idea of the style of music he wanted. I
wrote two pieces based around the same themes.
Bolero - Gavin played me a soundtrack from a video game
- mech warrior I think - and said that he'd like something like that. It
sounded very much like Ravel's Bolero! Unashamedly influenced by ELP's
"Abaddon's Bolero" from the Trilogy album, in this piece I tried to give
Gavin music that he could chop apart and repeat various sections of in
order to fit the film, which I had not seen at the time. Still haven't,
in fact. I wonder if it was actually finished?
End Titles - A more upbeat version of the same themes.
