The sound of ‘custom’
When diving into the unnerving world of ‘CUSTOM’, it was crucial to sonically echo the film’s intricate textures and layered emotional undercurrents. Tiago Teixeira’s unique vision for this paranoid horror thriller posed a distinct challenge: how to musically capture the crossroads of passion, fear, and ambition’s elusive chase?
Set within the unsettling realm of custom erotic films, the narrative demanded a score that intertwined tension with sensuality, reflecting the characters’ journey through the perplexing desires of ‘The Audience’. The outcome combined atmospheric sounds, haunting motifs, and pulsating rhythms. Interspersed were sounds crafted from recordings taken during the film’s shoot, all designed to underscore the characters’ multi-faceted challenges.
