Work 2 – Research and Education Saskatoon Saskatchewan Canada Education and Research Overview Why Education? Education used to be teaching the “3 R’s”, Reading, Writing and ‘Rithmatic (Math). No longer. Today it is Computers, Calculus, Particle Physics, Molecular Biology, Nano (Really, Really, Really, Really Small Stuff) Technology and all sorts of other complicated subjects. That is the world we increasingly live in and the one our future generations will certainly have to master to succeed in life. There was once a time when centuries would go by before a promising new scientific development or invention was recognized and brought into use. Now it can be only a matter or months, weeks, days or minutes. And our students have to be not only smart and well educated but nimble. Educating and preparing future generations for an ever changing world through primary, secondary, University or Trade education is a very important and increasingly daunting task. But it is a task that Saskatoon residents, primary and secondary school (public, private and parochial) administrators/teachers/staff and University administrators/faculty/staff have recognized and are responding to in order to educate the best prepared students possible. This is a constant theme that one finds running through all levels of education in Saskatoon - from Pre School to Post Graduate University Education. In other words a child can receive an excellent education in Saskatoon at a number of levels and in a number of ways. Why Research? A few thousand years ago most people believed that our Planet Earth was flat and was the center of the Universe, whatever the heck that was. As time passed, researchers, scientists and others showed that these were misconceptions and helped to shed light on a greater and more accurate truth. In other words, research has played an important role in life from the earliest of times and has become an integral part of the process of educating and training future generations. In Canada, not only has much of the responsibility for teaching at advanced levels been placed on the shoulders of its universities but also to serve as centers of research. And the concept makes sense. Research leads to the generation of new knowledge and what better a place to pass on this new knowledge than in an educational institution? The Combination of Education and Research. What happens when these two activities combine? Think of one as the generation of knowledge and the other as a way to disseminate that knowledge to the masses. The result? Uses for fire, the wheel all the way to modern medicine, nanotechnology and computers you can now wear on your wrist that 60 years ago were the size of a house and had only a fraction of the calculating power, huge over simplification that is. Here’s the point. Generation of KNOWLEDGE is GOOD. Research, some of which will generate KNOWLEDGE is GOOD. Teaching, a means to disseminate KNOWLEDGE is GOOD. Research that feeds into teaching is GOOD. Get It? GOOD.

I specialize in music for film, television, and interactive media. My genres include, Horror, Suspense, Emotions, Jazz, Romance, Far East, Rock, Crime, Electronic, Comedy, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Hip-Hop, and the list goes on. I've found that trying to come up with music from the script has always been difficult. The score, for me, is dictated by the way the images are laid out. The movement, the pacing, the timing and facial expressions. Other than the common denominator of whether it is going to be a romance or an action film, horror or a fantasy, you can take the same script and make 20 different movies from it, and that, for me, would require 20 different music scores.What works for me is to look at the rough cut of the film or video with absolutely no preconceptions of what I'm going to do. In other words, the more blank I can make my mine, the better the outcome will be for the project. So the first level of my process is the initial impression of a musical piece. Now I've got something-a theme, or motif, or rhythmic feel-that I think is going to work. The next part is really hard because it is about really applying it to the film, and that involves watching it a lot. I will take the rough cut media to my studio, watch over and over. I start coming up with lots of ideas and recording them and trying them out and moving them in multi variations. It is kind of a crazy process, because then I get to a point where I have too many ideas and I have to see how this idea will fit next to that idea, and how they can go together. I can't start actually writing the score until I'm very confident that I have all of the pieces in place. Now, I don't know how they are going to fit together exactly, but getting those components in order is the hardest part of scoring to me.It is good to know that the technical stuff doesn't make the score. It helps with the presentation, and directors really want that nowadays, but it still hasn't changed the fact that the art is still the art, and it is still about capturing tone. And capturing the tone is probably the most important thing you are going to give the production.
