Charlie Lyne's FISH STORY is a delightful tale: a family legend investigated, with some beautiful images, very unusual storytelling, and absolutely no fishy puns.
It took us a long time and a lot of false starts to settle on this sound (I have a huge folder of 'Fish Story Out-Takes...) but once we found it the whole soundtrack pretty much just unfolded. The live quintet (piano, guitar, organ, bass, drums) sound was a lot of fun to compose for and the constraints actually unlocked some very interesting ideas. As you'll hear, although the sound very much comes from a jazz/blues place the music doesn't really stay in that world...
