Shades is a very interesting and thought-provoking film based on John Walker Lindh, 'The American Taliban' and a CIA operative who was killed when Lindh was apprehended in Afghanistan. The score has abstract electronic sounds throughout, plus horns to represent the American hero and ethnic sounds to represent "the other." Throughout the film, the sounds come together, but I can't show you those scenes because those would be spoilers! So here's two short bits of "the other" featuring Lucas Bybee's first appearance as Lindh and a prayer with chant from the Q'uran. I played synth, ebowed fretless electric guitar, Balinese suling, percussion and samples on these cues.
