Sounds of Rain And Saint Bernards

Since that first word was written down on that piece of paper I knew that the music and sound would be one of the most important characteristics of this short film. Luckily enough we had the chance to work with two great musicians in Marco Baldino and Michael Wieland who composed the soundtrack for After The Rain. We strongly wanted Marco Baldino involved with the film since the story was based on short one-page essay he has written over a decade ago in college. Besides casting for a role in the film, Baldino volunteered to create the soundtrack for After The Rain. Baldino composed the first track of the short, capturing the buzzing and static feel of rain; recreating effects of being stuck between reality and a dream. Robby Lucà adds a touch of distortion waves to the opening track.

Saint Bernard of LoveFor the second part of the short we were looking for something a little softer with a strong build-up, a mix of drums and synths, something straight out of an M83 album. When we heard samples of Saint Bernard of Love (by Michael Wieland) we knew we had found exactly what we were looking for. Wieland wrote the song entitled “Small Victories (Reprise)” for the second part of the film, “(Reprise)” because after writing it he realized it was a continuation of an old song he had composed for Saint Bernard of Love called “Small Victories”. The song floats you right up to the dramatic ending.

Make sure to listen to “Saint Bernard of Love”. His experimental style and synths give you a glimpse of what ‘After The Rain’ sounds like.
