Having posted the scores for Down (from Chapter 2) and Gretel’s Lullaby (Chapter 3), I present the score for Eclipse (also Chapter 3). Eclipse is the song that Stephen Maclean’s band is playing in the Bourke Street Mall when Steve Borman first encounters him.
It’s a song about the darkness we can carry inside us – how it can give us strength when we are driven to extremes, but how dangerous it can be. If we’re lucky, we’ll never need to draw on such dark things to protect ourselves.
It’s mean to be a bit of a hard rocker, with lots of electric guitar and drums. Imagining something like Shinedown would do the trick nicely.
