Crystal D'Esprit - The Foundling - Zurich Film Festival 2022
Film by Director Barney Cokeliss. Film Score by Crystal D'Esprit for the Zurich International Film Scoring Festival 2022. Composed for symphony orchestra. A beautiful short film about the 1920's and 30's Freak show. A baby with a horn on his head is given to the circus by his mother. She later reunites with him and whilst he is performing as the "unicorn boy" there is an instant connection. She runs away and he chases her through the fairground where they meet in the arena where the circus performers are performing. He reaches out to touch her and is knocked over by a clown, protecting him from the trapeze act practicing. His mother drops her watch and runs off again. He collects the watch and goes back to his carriage with his girlfriend and then the carriages drive off. I had a fantastic experience composing this score as I had to study jazz form and combine it with classical scoring, encompassing seven separate cues in this film and the film is exquisite. Composing magic and mystery and staying true to the era as well as crafting the climactic emotional end sequence was a real journey in it's self. Learning about freak shows and their importance. Also the history of Jazz and why Jazz is such an important form for the freedom of expression within barriers was also a really insightful journey that has added a depth and colour to my pallet. Thank you to Zurich Film Festival for this fantastic opportunity. Much love Crystal D'Esprit #filmscorecomposer #classical #jazz #composition #zurichfilmfestival #cinematic #emotional #filmscore #drama #shortfilm

Crystal D'Esprit #NGCLab2021 Abigail's signature #ngclab2021
Abigail's signature. Composed arranged and produced by Crystal D'Esprit for the #ngclab2021 film score contest. I chose this sequence as it moves through various emotional and dramatic scenes that demand different forms of composition and arrangement unlike composing it just as a trailer. I like to challenge myself with transitions whilst micromanaging the intricate thematic details of each scene making sure the music tells the story and illustrates the scenes as if they existed in the full movie (much more complex). At the end scene, with the main melody, I kept hearing lyrics so I felt compelled to sing the ending theme. Written for an Orchestra in Moscow. This is the audio mock-up composed and produced in Logic Pro X Enjoy. Made with love.

Flip, "Pretty Disney" said CINE
Flip Animation Film Score And Sound Design Composed By Crystal D'Esprit For The CINE Marvin Hamlisch Film Scoring Contest 2015. CINE stated that this score was "Pretty" and has the "Disney" formulae. They loved the mood changes throughout the sequences, the original voice composition / sound design and the attention to detail of the scored action. The composition of the music was inspired by and assisted by Crystal's two young daughters who's recorded foley sounds that feature in this production. The composition and production was entirely made inside of Logic Pro 9 on Crystal's MacBook Pro. Crystal is performing her Pearl Flute at the end sequence. Her youngest daughter's early whistle features and her eldest daughter chose the sound for the wings and helped to collect the foley samples. http://www.crystaldesprit.com http://www.facebook.com/musiccrystal http://www.twitter.com/CrystalDEsprit (+44) 7725842716 Tel.

This classical emotionally moving piece is dedicated to Cameo (my daughter) who gave me the inspiration during one of our music sessions. All my love Cameo now and forever. Written with love from mum. I hope you enjoy Heartstrings. This composition was composed, arranged and produced by Crystal D'Esprit during the COVID-19 Lockdown in England, music set to the backdrop of the natural beauty that surrounds us and moments that we share.
