Spider (Nathan Fleet, Canada) 1:42
This track by Nathan Fleet, who’s a film composer (among other things), is short but important. It captures very nicely the image I have of the Spider, who’s a character in the novel: imposing, beautiful, and terrifying.
The Spider is also very still, and you may notice that this piece isn’t dynamic—it doesn’t really have the feeling of something that moves forward, something that has momentum. Instead, it sounds like something giant and scary and awesome that remains utterly immobile as you gaze at it, and that’s the Spider.
Do not miss–and I seriously mean do not miss–his awesome short film Air Knob, ebedded below. It is seven minutes of happiness.
