“This is a character driven story focusing on a first degree familial relationship. A complicated father/daughter relationship at that. It seems to me that this is the kind of sensitive situation where words can just seem to come out wrong, where there may even be no words at all to express the depths of that which is felt internally. A hidden dimension so to speak. Something that, in quite a mystical sense, is both shared by and unique to both father and daughter. A kind of coded language that comes from the extreme vulnerability and illusory exposure that the dynamics of family can so easily create.
“What I want to attempt with this music is to give that hidden dimension, that secret code, a voice in this cinematic caldron. To expose that which is unknowable behind the eyes of the father, and uncertain behind those of the daughter, in an attempt to accentuate the fragility of the story and hopefully, in turn, the impact of the catharsis as well.”
