What makes haunted house horror flick The Pact unusual is that it does not take place in some gothic mansionimagine the haunted place being your own home! The setting of Nicholas McCarthy's stylish tale inspired up and coming composer Ronen Landa (Divergence) to experiment a lot: "I sampled everything from my washer/dryer to my radiator to a cadre of kitchen items in order to develop textural elements and percussion that appear throughout the score." The result is one of the most interesting genre scores we have come across recently, written for a small chamber orchestra and soloists.
Beautiful melodic writing for piano and solo violin provides an elegant and emotional contrast to the more experimental parts of the score. The stand-out cue 'Apparitions' offers a lot of unusual instrumental techniques and is a treat for the fan of the avant-garde. Although The Pact is one of Ronen Landa's first major feature films, his writing is very mature.
The first edition of the CD is limited to 500 copies.
