Raven’s Jig – Daylight Express to Lutz

After Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack “Interstellar” lost the 2015 Academy Award for Best Original Music Score to Alexandre Desplat’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, Onne (a fervent Zimmer fan) came to Agathe to complain about it. To which Agathe responded, “Wait, have you heard what the winner’s music sounds like?” Half an hour later Onne was chastising …

Raven’s Jig – Tournis (The Heart Asks Pleasure First)

We had a go at “The Heart Asks Pleasure First”, from the 1993 film The Piano, and turned it into a vocal arrangement. The topic we had in mind when writing the lyrics was the social construct of carousels (or children’s rides in general). When we tell a kid that he’s supposed to enjoy a …

Raven’s Jig – You’re so Cool! (on-vocal)

Believe it or not… This is also a Hans Zimmer song. The last one we played to date, and a particular one at that; this is one of the first songs that gave Onne inspiration to play more cheerful songs and experiment in more childlike styles, which would much later lead to the rise of …

Raven’s Jig – Moon River

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is one of Agathe’s favorite films, and both Raven’s Jig members love Audrey Hepburn’s sheer sense of style and grace – so it only made sense to pay homage to her with this simple, straightforward arrange of Henri Mancini’s Moon River. Of course, it doesn’t beat the original scene with Hepburn stroking …

Raven’s Jig – A Time for Us (on-vocal)

Fun fact : Agathe almost cried while singing the vocal arrange of this song. Our arrange of 1968 Romeo and Juliet’s A Time For Us, by Nino Rota, speaks not of love, but of the gap between a normal, peaceful life and a life full of adventure but also danger and a sense of deep …

Raven’s Jig – Concerning Hobbits

The challenge with this one was straightforward: pay the best homage possible to the introduction scene for the Hobbits in the first Lord Of The Rings film. We tried to make this song sound as “green” and peaceful as possible. The lyrics which we added to this arrangement are also inspired by Bilbo’s narration over …

Raven’s Jig – My Heart will go On

Oh no, not that movie. This is what we thought when we decided to arrange this song. We found it interesting as a melody and wanted to test our skills on it (complete with a return of our beloved children’s choir), but as neither of us is the type of person who cries to movies …
