Original score from the 2022 animation feature film directed by Signe Baumane, starring Dagmara Dominczyk, Cameron Monaghan and
Matthew Modine, produced by The Marriage Project, Studio Locomotive, Antevita Films and Cinco Dedos Peliculas, released by 8 Above (USA) and Tamasa Distribution (France).
THE STORY: A young spirited woman, Zelma, is determined to conform to the pressures of singing Mythology Sirens in order to be loved, but the more she conforms, the more her body resists. A story of inner female rebellion.
THE SCORE: “I’m not sure if this is my best work; it’s not for me to say. What I am certain of is that it is definitely the most eclectic and represents the longest time I have worked on over the years. It has certainly been the most stimulating, encompassing everything from Broadway musicals to songs of various genres, orchestral music, and folk music. Not to mention the more experimental part, in which, together with director Signe Baumane, we decided to use only percussion instruments to musically portray what happens in our bodies and minds when we fall in love and experience a relationship with another human being. I hope you will appreciate the musical experience as much as I have loved working on and experimenting in this fascinating project.” – Kristian Sensini
