Well done again. You're very talented.

This kind of score for a period piece will really pop out.

Thank you. Nolan proved with Dunkirk that a hybrid/electronic score works really well with a WWII film. I’m really curious to know what direction they’re taking with this one.

well "ackshually" electronic music was invented in the ww2 era, it makes more sense than we might initially feel.

Technically true yes, but regardless I’m a really big fan of when period films have very modern electronic music, it juxtaposes itself very well and in my opinion makes for a much more interesting piece of filmmaking as a whole

The first synthesizer was made 10 years after the war apparently (according to Google). In 1955 specifically.

I’d love to hear some really ominous sounds using synths. I’ve got another idea in my head. This turned into a full concept EP or something.

Well I think it’s safe to say the first taste we got of the score did NOT disappoint
