A large amount of this production was underscored. These original scores and arrangements were an attempt to shape the atmosphere of the play.
The Witch Queen This is the underscoring for Hecate. It was made with the musical styling of "magic sounds" in mind. All of these effects were created using various synthesizers and compiled into one complete piece. This is used to contrast the recorded instruments in each of the other scores.
The Murder of the Macduffs Above is a composition used in the murder of Macduff's Family. It uses ostinatos (a repeating musical phrase) of heavy pounding war drums, horn, and time stretched clarinet. All deaths within the play end in a female vocalist singing up a chromatic scale to give the play's deaths a sense of cohesion.
Macduff Above is a pitch shifted mandolin. This gives the feeling of a low threatening string instrument with the added percussive elements of the mandolin. It was improvised until the desired sound was achieved.
Dance of the Witches This is a piece created for the the witches dance. It has synthesized tones, highly edited field recordings, and various odd percussion.
A Conspiracy The piece above was created to underscore the scene where Lennox and Lord Conspire. It uses low tones and high lonesome piano notes. This is an attempt to create the feeling of the entire audience conspiring along side of the actors.
War When Macbeth and Macduff fight this was played to create the feeling of being inside of a war. It uses drums, mandolin, horns, and high pitched clarinet squeals.
The Fall This was created for the bows. It combined various musical and non musical cues to create a sense of finality within the piece.
