Junkie XL Explains Approach To Composing Strings

In this video, Junkie XL walks us through his process of composing music for the film, Brimstone. His demonstrations include how he transposes the original piano melody to strings, making his strings sound more authentic and dynamic, as well as the underlying music theory of the score.

Describing his approach to strings, he says:

String players are melody players…

In regards to composing for strings, something that Junkie XL emphasizes is that each string instrument, from violin to double bass, follows a distinct melody and not a chord progression. This makes sense, as each stringed instrument is not particularly designed for playing chords. Rather, a chord progression comes from the combination of each individual melody from each orchestra member.

This video is the first installment to his new season of Studio Time, a series that Junkie XL dedicates to explaining his studio processes and techniques while producing music.
