Jordan Peele’s Us

Jordan Peele’s eagerly anticipated follow up to his film debut (Get Out) came out this weekend, and Us looks like it’s going to be a groundbreaking film. I was privileged to serve on the music team under composer Michael Abels, who conceived a phenomenal score with a completely unique and spellbinding flavor. Even if you’re not a horror fan, I recommend you go and see it for some amazing artistry.

I also think the sound of this film is destined to be a template and influence for many films to come. Already I’ve heard of several directors working on horror films, who are asking their composers to reference the sound of Us. That’s a telling sign.

Here is a link to the entire score.

A peaceful night under the stars with my beloved Debussy and Ravel. (Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune and the G major piano concerto -- my favorite.) https://t.co/cXQjNGd6fw daviddas photo
