I recently scored The Maybank, a psychological thriller written and directed by Junior Day. Myself and Junior discussed in depth how we wanted this score to sound, using references such as Gone Girl and Dunkirk. We decided that a dark, atonal, experimental score would suit the nature of the film, accurately representing the psychotic protagonist. Heavy use of both hardware and software synthesis was used, with further manipulating and processing techniques creating unique sounding pads, textures and combinations. I wanted to combine the electronic influences with traditional instrumentation and contemporary orchestrations, blending both worlds together. I also wanted to use the cinematography and editing to great effect, bringing in a Hitchcock/Bernard Herrman influence at the start of Act II, juxtaposing the picture for creative effect.
