ALT BLIR BRA ? (EVERYTHING WILL BE OK?)
Carl wanted the soundtrack to be "toneless" in his feature doc depicting the onset of the COVID pandemic. And as such, let the viewer sort
of define his/her own emotional basal tone while watching the film, based on their own experience in the pandemic situation.
Still, he felt he needed a pulse of sorts to drive the story forward and add dynamics. The solution was to create a fully percussive soundtrack. Carl built a drum set including some percussive elements and pretty much just played through the film. Unknowingly (or naively?), the result ended much more emotionally and tonally charged than expected.
Hereunder is the entire score and two scenes to demonstrate the use of percussive music in this film.
