Spider (Nathan Fleet, Canada) 1:42

Track 05

Luck + Death: home page — Amazon — Kobo

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.

Nathan Fleet is an award winning filmmaker and film composer in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and the director of the Hamilton Film Festival.

Do not miss–and I seriously mean do not miss–his awesome short film Air Knob, ebedded below. It is seven minutes of happiness.
