See what I did there? Looks easy but it's not. Just kidding. Anyways. . . So, one of the difficulties with working on a project that has a lot of dark subject matter or battered characters is the need to put yourself in their shoes. After all, you want the emotions your conveying to feel organic. Dialogue shouldn't be forced. But to do this you need to get into a certain mood.
So how do you get into a mood when there's killers and addiction and the threat of your world crashing down around you (and no watch the news is not the answer)? Music. The all powerful entity that floods our ears on a daily basis. There was a year back in college where we made it a point to go to at least once concert a month. We ended up hitting something like 17 or 18 that year maybe more who knows. After awhile the months blend together.
Not only does music help us feel and empathize, it helps us endure and survive. So, I thought it would be a cool idea to share the soundtrack that Jack Be Quick was written to. Sure there were other tunes but these are the twelve that were on repeat almost every day. They range from acoustic and mellow to hardcore screamo rock so, listener beware ; )
