Music Cue #1 for "Graduation Day"


I need a single note
You have learned that a single note can be used to create a musical sound effect that creates a mood.
Your instructor (that's me!) is creating a film score for the Super 16mm motion picture short called "Graduation Day". I need your help"
I need a sound effect that indicated that the hero has to go to use the toilet.
How can you do this with just one simple chord.

Here is the sound I currently am using. It needs to be faint but it also needs to be uncomfortable. Please help:

A simple one-note musical cue

After a long day of filing, our hero need to find a toilet.

You must make the audience aware that he feels discomfort.

How can you do this with a single musical chord?


Apple's GarageBand plus the sounds of a symphony orchestra
I am creating this film score using GarageBand and Jam Pack:Symphony Orchestra.
Next week, I will be getting MUTO's Symphonic Instrument which has additional musical instruments for GarageBand.
Using just this combination, I need a GarageBand project file which creates the feeling of mild discomfort. Currently, I am using a violin trill cord. I need a better cord but I don't know how to do this.
Can you help me? Robert Elliott 12:18, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
