BURIED (ENTERRÉS) - Feature Film
Four childhood friends meet up after attending the funeral of the local priest. The plan is to bury parts of their past. But as they each reveal their item and tell their stories, they realise they are all connected to a much more sinister reality, one that none of them had ever truly left behind and buried. (Trailer on the WATCH Page)
About the Soundtrack
"The only thing the director was certain about was that the score had to sound African and specifically from central Africa. Given the subject matter, I decided to score the darkness of the childhood memories, which is heard as early as the opening titles and mirrored with hope in the closing titles. I used detuned drums to reflect the concept of burning things down into the ground. The haunting, childlike melody heard in track 3, reflects the children in the childhood stories and suffers the same detuned state in track 10 "Into the Woods". The score is mostly under the radar until it climaxes in tracks 10 and 11, reflecting the new jeopardy on screen, before offering a window of release in the final track, "You're Free"."
WOUNDED - Feature Film
