Amulet (feature film score) – at Sundance 2020

Amulet

World premiere at Sundance 2020

Amulet, a contained horror, is the first feature film directed by Romola Garai who also wrote the film’s screenplay.

I’ve created a score for this film, mixing female voices with ancient instruments and electronics. With thanks to vocalists Sarah Gabriel,  Melanie Pappenheim and Robin Hallett and instrumentalists Stephen Bentley-Klein and Stephen Hiscock, all of whom can be heard in this score. The film had its world premiere in the Midnight section of Sundance Film Festival, January 2020.

You can read more about the score and how it fits into the language of Garai’s film in this interview with Stephen Saito.
