ABOUT THE FILM
Alessandro invited me to create a new score for this offshoot from his trilogy of stunning, hand-drawn animated shorts that explore fear, hope, desire and the deepest parts of the human psyche.
This time, the exquisitely simple story poetically explores the loss of innocence, the process of conforming, the pressures of society, through a deceptively simple analogy. Leaves you thinking.
A real joy to work on.
ABOUT THE MUSIC
I wanted to musically explore a simple, playful and childlike music, but with a touch of melancholy. I also decided to express the simplicity and innocence of the story by limiting the music to using a single analog synth, recorded in free time and cut and paste into a collage of melodies.
The sound effects enhance the tragic story through the change of the sounds of the character as he transforms, from bubbly and quirky to plain and simple.
