Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch's dark, throbbing score to Prano Bailey-Bond's horror debut "Censor" is out now on vinyl, after previously being released on digital platforms.
The vinyl is pressed on clear vinyl with black smoke effect, and comes housed in a deluxe spined sleeve with double sided printed insert featuring beautiful imagery from the film.
Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch manages to inhabit a space between Ennio Morricone, Goblin and John Carpenter in her stunning score to Censor.
“I wanted the original score to focus on two different elements of the film's storytelling which slowly intertwine as the movie progresses”, Emilie tells Booklyn Vegan.
"One sound palette represents the trauma of our lead character Enid, with a use of manipulated vocals and synthesisers, slow moving, almost suspended, and at times disorientating cues, with short melodic motives, little lullabies Enid might softly sing to herself to sooth her anxiety and guilt of having lost her sister. The other palette is much more anchored in the time period (1980s) and genre the film explores.” She calls that second sound palette a "love letter to classic Carpenter and Goblin soundtracks, using vintage synths, rare Japanese instruments and choirs to bring us deep into the fun, surreal, and meta elements of the film.”
Censor received critical acclaim upon its release including a 5 star review in The Guardian, and is available to watch now.
