Woman of War: Scoring to Captain Marvel
Woman of War is a final project that sought to reflect my challenges, dreams, as well as establishing a sense of who I am as a composer. As an indecisive individual whom grew from two different cultures, (American and Chinese) I wanted to find a piece that truly identifies who I was. The project is a reflection of what I have learned from Berklee College of Music in mixture with my childhood dreams of being able to write for Superheroes in the near future. This thesis explains my entire process from inspiration, to theme, and finally to screen. In addition, I included an analysis on the similarities between my source of inspiration, how the music reflects through film, and an layered orchestration analysis.
