HH: It's different for each movie. In No Such ThingI think I let the music do a lot more of the work that dialogue might have done in my earlier films. Also, in other parts, the music is behind the dialogue and behind the scenes, setting the tone that holds the dramatic pitch together. But at other times, the music is really driving the action. I found real pleasure in putting together scenes of people traveling from one place to another, and crafting music to accompany that. In the earlier days, I wanted the music to cue you almost like a curtain.
As the curtain opens, the movie shifts in Cue #18c - Various - Amateur Soundtrack - A Film By Hal Hartley direction. O: What about VI - The Mars Volta - Frances The Mute How do you want them to play off the action?

HH: Well, I don't stay current. Only by accident do I wind up seeing something that's current. I'm teaching a class right now, so I watch a lot of films every week, but they're from all over the place. One of my jobs as a teacher is to show these films to a bunch of bright Cue #18c - Various - Amateur Soundtrack - A Film By Hal Hartleyeverything I'm fairly certain they've never seen before, which is great.
O: So a lot of these things, you're just revisiting. HH: Yeah. It generally starts from a conversation. I show them something, and then we have a conversation about it.
