A small scale stop-motion Western set in the great indoors, 'Once Upon A Time In The Shed' is a film by Barnaby Dixon.

The film is heavily influenced by the spaghetti-westerns of Sergio Leone, and so I looked to Ennio Morricone for inspiration for the score - Orchestral with a strong rhythm section, sung wordless melody, and electric guitar. However, I also wanted to hit sync points hard, so there is subtle variation in tempo and time signature to keep things on track. The role of the music is to elevate the small scale of the shed into the great frontier of the wild west.
