Research Song 1: Lullaby composed by Johannes Brahms
Johannes Brahms was a German composer and pianist who was born in Hamburg. I felt his song 'Lullaby' would create a sombre mood over the audience and would connect well with our plotline of her child who she killed as she has schizophrenia. Due to her having schizophrenia she has two personailities; her Good Side and her Bad side who has killed her child, however her Good Side has convinced her that she hasn't. Lullaby songs are 'stereotypically' sung to by mothers to their children so they can sleep at night, so by using this song it would have connections again of the women's relationship with her child as she sorts out her child's room.
Research Song 2: Clair de Lune composed by Claude Debussy
Claude-Achille Debussy was a French composer. I felt this song would a good choice to use for our main task as it's quite light with a bit of a bouncy tune. 'Clair de Lune' would work well as it would create, again a sombre mood, with the audience and also would help them understand better what may have happened to this women, and how she is coping.
Research Song 3: Any Other Name composed by Thomas Newman
Thomas Montgomery Newman is an American composer and conductor who is one of the more respected and recognized composers for modern film. I feel that 'Any Other Name' is the best song out of the three which I have researched. When I listen to this song, I can imagine the audience connecting more emotionally to the women, as in their eyes they could identify her OCD disorder which she has due to her losing a child. This song would create a better sombre mood than the other two songs.
