Quiet Generation

The film focuses on a series of events that unravel after the death of Andrea, the reaction of his friend Jonathan, and the behavior of a group of friends after school in the aftermath of a tragedy. What’s left is an interrupted life and a way things could have gone.

Case study

The characters in the story are heavily influenced by the digital means through which they interact. I wanted to represent their dysfunctional, digital-obsessed lives with a score that would feel cold and mechanical, while retaining a lot of imperfections and idiosyncrasies. I tried to get there by using glitchy technology and purposefully out-of-sync instruments, which were further manipulated to achieve a broken quality. The music was created on a modular synthesizer and mangled in rough, imperfect ways with lo-fi delay processors and drum machines.
