My culminating project was a re-scoring of Eric D. Howell’s film Strangers (2015). I wanted to make sure I wrote a score that really reflected and refracted the film’s simultaneously deeply personal yet superficial narrative. In Strangers, the viewer follows two mysterious, torn, yet oddly connected characters with no obvious motivating source for their feelings and actions. There is no clear hint of where the narrative will turn, why, how, or when. This is aided and augmented by the setting and environment which reflect the characters’ psycho-emotional instability.
