Original score from the 2021 drama television series directed by Julius Berg, starring Kad Merad, Aure Atika and Gérard Depardieu, produced by Federation Entertainment and released by TF1 (France) and Disney+ (USA).
THE STORY: After a hit and run, a young man confessed his accident to his dad, who is a judge. His father soon realized that the victim, is the son of a very dangerous man, that he sent to prison.
THE SCORE: “The brief by director Julius Berg was pretty simple: Less is more. He asked me to developed a classic motivic (film noir like) approach to the music with easily recognizable themes for the protagonists. Stressing the dilemma and emotions of the father and his son. We also decided that it was to be a hybrid score of orchestral and electronic colors. I also experimented with more ‘musique concrète’ like sounds as the plot developed towards more ‘roughness’ and ‘darkness’. Thus offering a palette of orchestral/electronic/found sounds through the score. I played most of the instruments myself, the rest is programmed.” – Erwann Kermorvant
