Composition and Arrangement

All the cues were composed and arranged based on the song Woman Of Ireland. The director used this particular song during the whole film production, even during the shooting to have a clear idea about how the film would look and sound. That theme represents the childs point of view during the different phases of the film.


The palette of sounds used for this film goes from a very minimalistic Tin Whistle with Harp to an epic full orchestra.

Orchestra Recording

To maximize the potential of the film, we decided with the director to record it with a real orchestra. The challenge was to find an available orchestra that fits the project´s deadline and budget.

  • After the recording with the Budapest Scoring Symphony Orchestra : We had the tremendous privilege of recording the tin whistle with the talented flutist Sara Andon.
