RAUW is a Dutch short film that focuses on the topic of losing a loved one and dealing with loss in today’s society.
While developing the filmscore, my main intention was to let silence and subtle tones support the delicate topic. Instead of making a large-sounding piece that portrayed all my composing capabilities, I pushed myself to write music in service of the picture. In my opinion the film illustrates sadness, anger, and most importantly emptiness which became the inspirational focus of the music.
RAUW is expected to be in Dutch theaters in 2022.
