Joe Swanberg keeps this journal in an effort to document the LOL making process and figure out where all his time and money went.

    Faceless relief

    Joe and I had a long discussion about the music last night and I'm much more confident about my role (and the music's role) in the movie. I get to be an invisible composer, working mainly as a filler of source music. When Joe told me I didn't have to be the Vangelisly John Williams soundtracker I was very relived. When I make soundtrack music I want to be in charge of the images myself - and since Joe is the director in this case I would have no control over what is seen. But as a source composer I feel much more comfortable ornamenting the locations of the action rather than being relied upon to fill the more subliminal and poetic hole that a soundtrack would require. Now I can go work on this little dirty jock jam song without worring about how it fits into the scope of the movie. I'm excited to have a reason to make these little faceless nuggets for Joe to drop into his tank.
