Original Score to Pedro Pimentel's stylized exocism-horror film "The Priest"

The Priest is shot in a style paying homage to the 1960s-'70s age of Hollywood. As such, we felt the music had to reflect this, so I set out to craft a score that captured the harmonic, melodic, and textural languages of the great composers of that time.

Apart from my usual style of scoring, the main theme of The Priest, isn't attached to one character or object in particular, but rather captures the philosophy of the film - another trait used by composers of the '60s and '70s. That said, there are motifs included for the mother/daughter relationship and a suspenseful brooding ostinato for the "dark one."

The Priest has been a huge treat to score. Not only pushing me out of my comfort zone harmonically and melodically, but orchestrally as well. Even deciding how to create drastic mood shifts, without compromising the musical flow.

We decided to present the soundtrack as a 3 part mini symphony, partly due the style of the music, but also because the music captures the 3 acts of the film. Much like movements of a symphony, the theme develops throughout the work, as if it were one large sonata form.
