Amy Lee – Aftermath (Teaser)

“Making music for War Story was a truly liberating creative experience. We were being guided by an artist (director, Mark Jackson), who was not only open to, but encouraged us to think outside the box and go with our inspirations. It was really cool and different to have a mission for a scene— to be guided by what feelings we needed to evoke to illustrate the characters and situations. Sometimes we would end up with things that were very different from the original vision, and sometimes that would inspire Mark and he would fall in love with the left turn. We also ended up spinning off into creative tangents and getting extra music that didn’t end up in the film and that’s a big part of why we really wanted to make this album.  There was so much extra music that we really loved and felt deserved to be finished out and shared. This body of work is a collection of our favorite songs and instrumental score pieces that we’re created over the last year while working on War Story.” -Amy
