Ahead of its time, Harry Robertson's memorable score for the epic 1980's sword and sorcery flick Hawk The Slayer is rightly famous and considered a key element of the film's long-lasting legacy.
So, what's happening with the music for the forthcoming, full-cast, audio adaptation of Hawk The Slayer?
The project's mastermind, Graham Richards, explains on its Kickstarter page:
"We have obtained permissions to use the original music score in our drama, so we're confident it will sound every bit as it needs to.The campaign is currently teetering around the 50 per cent mark, with several weeks yet to run.
This is the important bit... We experimented with just placing the whole film soundtrack recording into the drama, but it sounded in places like a "wannabe" production, too close to the original.
"Coupled with the difficulties in extra licences required to use the same recordings as the OST, we made a decision that's already paying off... We took the themes from the score and began tailoring them directly to the play, exploring a darker mood with the soundtrack.
"Although we want this to be obviously Hawk, what we don't want is a carbon-copy.
"This will be different enough to enjoy on its own merits, and yet be suitably familiar.
"We are also commissioning brand-new music in the same style for certain scenes.
"Due to the additional dialogue, many music cues have been moved, and it's likely that your favourite beat isn't going to appear at the very moment you remember.
"But everything is carefully considered. There’s now more content to many of the scenes, and the beats have been moved to where needed to continue the momentum.
"Some music has been shifted to where it can better augment the dialogue. Nothing is changed on a whim, and things are kept as expected wherever possible.
"Each scene should have something fresh to enjoy, and something familiar to keep you feeling warm 'n' fuzzy."
