Original score from the 2023 horror comedy feature film directed by Ariane Louis-Seize, starring Sarah Montpetit, Félix-Antoine Bénard and Patrick Hivon, produced by Art et essai and released by Drafthouse Films (USA), Wayna Pitch (France) and Atlas International Film (Germany).

THE STORY: A young woman vampire is unable to kill to meet her need for blood, but may have found a solution in a young man with suicidal tendencies.

THE SCORE: “The music for Humanist Vampire Seeking Consenting Suicidal Person was composed in St-Adrien at Studio le Nid in the presence of the film’s director, Ariane Louis-Seize, just before starting the editing process. It features instruments reminiscent of classic vintage soundtracks, inspired, among others, by Andrés Pajares’ piece “Dracula ye ye”. The score employs more modern sounds to accompany the character of young Paul and the budding love between the vampire Sasha and him. The flugelhorn and mellotron flute reveal the theme of the lovers that evolves throughout the film and will be joined by strings in a grand finale.” – Pierre-Philippe Côté (Pilou)
