The Watchers – Abel Korzeniowski

Abel Korzeniowski’s The Watchers (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is out now! The supernatural horror film, directed by Ishana Night Shyamalan, stars Dakota Fanning and Georgina Campbell and hits theaters June 7th.

Abel writes:

“My music harks back to the tribal, pagan rituals of pre-Celtic Ireland, expressing primal, animalistic energy in its unadorned and raw form. The score features experimental acoustic instruments (Daxophone, Harbor Drum) alongside the classical orchestra.

I spent a few days on the set in Ireland, and the forest where the shooting took place was one of the most incredible locations I’ve ever seen. Every tree was soaking and brimming with life, with intertwined layers of moss in every shade of green covering the ground like a sponge. The sound of the forest was mesmerizing, and I wanted to capture that feeling in the score.

I aimed to reflect the complexity of the natural environment without the constraints of modern, digital precision. I consciously avoided the traditional orchestral effects, like clusters, that have become clichéd in the horror genre, instead opting for the distinctive wooden sound of the Daxophone, recorded to magnetic tape.”
