The score for Gimme One is produced by artist Joseph Summers using feedback, electronic and ballroom inspired sounds. Joe's Statement is:
My main condition for accepting Harry’s proposal for scoring this film was that I didn’t want to rip off authentic ballroom music made by people who are part of that community. As an outsider, I wanted to take a respectful approach - being inspired by (and showing admiration for) the music of this scene without trying to re-produce or claim it in any way. I wanted to create music that spoke to the pure emotional & physical aspects of the art form as described in the film, and since the locations occupied are mostly virtual (possibly, I thought, evoking the space in people’s heads when they THINK about ballroom) it made sense to employ certain trends from ballroom music - the space, the percussive punctuations, the minimal melodies injecting an emotional resonance, the voice - and abstract them. The voice (courtesy of my friend Zoë Mc Pherson) is the thread which ties the separate cues together - and, for me, is symbolic of the profound humanity at the heart of the ballroom scene.
