ABOUT THE MUSIC: La Hermandad combines dark orchestral textures with a more thematic approach characterized by the evocative choral writing inspired by the story’s religious settiMoviemusikng. Bataller engages in some more textural, dissonant writing in cues like “First Departure”, “Investigations” which are quite creepy, especially with regard to the eerie string textures, the chaotic orchestral explosions of sound, and the disorienting glassy electronic noises. This is counterbalanced by some lighter writing featuring harps, chimes, and gongs in cues like “I Have Heard Children”, more lyrical melodies for piano in “There Are Children”, and a sublime cello and woodwind duet in “My Daughter” MoviemusicUK

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE: The music was recorded by the Liceu Orchestra, Barcelona’s Opera House, and mixed by Marc Blanes at BSO Superestudio, Barcelona.
