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.

Loved spending time sharing this afternoon with the participants of @The_SCL's excellent Mentor Program, a program that really helped me find my feet in this industry. https://t.co/3FtGHhAjNk daviddas photo
