A melody that just did not work!

It's been quite a different experience for me to work as a composer for a movie when compared to making music with my band to create ‪#‎IndoSoul‬. Apart from the obvious contrast in terms of the stylization of the song, one has to work to meet the requirements of the particular mood of the scene as well as the ultimate vision of the director. Here's a scratch that I made for a sad song that was liked by the team but ultimately did not work for the particular scene. The stage in the movie necessitated a much more intense and emotionally charged number for which I ended up making a totally different song.

However the good news is that these exercises lead to melodies that might come to use for other projects and go right into my song bank, stored for possible future use! Sharing a rough clipping of the melody in question - a song that talks about love lost. It has me singing the melody without any lyrics and my good friend Dondieu Divin arranging it.
