Program Notes
 

A man stricken with a rare skin disease prays for comfort and healing, only to discover a dark presence in his new home with him. This original score features creepy sounds inspired by the creative instrument designs of Chas Smith, as well as intimate orchestrations of strings and brass. Score features Katherine Lamback offering live cello solos, imitating the descent of the main character into darkness.

This score was composed as a capstone project while studying Composition for Film, TV, and Video Games at Berklee College of Music. The film was directed by Daxon Geldmacher and stars Jared Palmer and Damien Parente. Soundtrack was composed by Brendan Child, and mixed by Dawson Green.
