Jenny Conlee - "French Kayaking Music" CD
While McCluskey was sending over scenes to be composed to, the pair realized the need to expand the musical palette. On top of the collection of Musette inspired waltzes there was a need to express the feeling of the old west and the river itself. Conlee added piano pieces that are both somber and whimsical. Drizos then layered drum and percussion tracks and the addition of Jill Coykendall on clarinet adds to the feeling of loneliness and space. Other musicians on the album are Jesse Emerson on upright bass and Kyleen King on viola and violin, fleshing out the main musical theme of the film, the track Traveling. Drizos also composed two ambient guitar pieces that beautifully reflect the splendor of the canyon to round out the collection.
Conlee and Drizos have also collaborated on a soundtrack for the short film The Kid, directed by Jeff Winograd, which premiered at the Portland International Film Festival in 2014.
