Svart Records will present the original soundtrack of the supernatural thriller “Requiem”. This production for the BBC and Netflix was written and created by Kris Mrksa and directed by Mahalia Belo, with award-winning composers Dominik Scherrer (The Missing, Ripper Street & Marple), and Natasha Khan of Bat For Lashes taking up the mission to conjure an eerie landscape of sharp, scraping cello, soothing harps and tense string sections.
Composer Dominik Scherrer comments on this collaboration: «Natasha Khan and I spent some weeks in my studio in Brick Lane, coming up with themes and recording outlandish vocals and terrifying sounds», he recalls. «There is a cheeky element to the show, as well as a genuinely scary one. Together with a pastoral spookiness of the cello and strings themes started to give “Requiem” its own unique atmosphere. We experimented with deviant playing techniques and unconventional recording approaches, to complete a moody air of retro horror and pastoral spook.»
“Requiem” OST will be available on September 4, 2020 via Svart Records on Gatefold Vinyl, with the black vinyl edition limited to 600 copies and violet vinyl limited to 400 copies.
