DE BRÆNDTE BØRN
Produced for TV2 Denmark
Elisabeth Zornig, a danish author and debater helps people with traumatic childhoods confronting their parents, demanding answers. A really tough subject that requires a very accurate expression in the musical language. It can easily be “too much” if the music doesn’t pay enough respect to the cruel stories that takes place.
A mix of classical instrumentation, which adds elegance and a little hope, combined with glitchy distorted electro elements, that pulls down towards a darker mood. There’s a bell hitting every fourth note, like being poked on the shoulder - saying: “You cannot ignore your situation”. On top there’s a piano theme with equal amount of sadness and "life continues no matter what - and it will be okay”..
We also made intro remixes into several mood beds, and a few piano themes.
