You may have heard of them, you may not, but tomandandy have created original soundtracks for movies like The Hills Have Eyes and Killing Zoe as well as some TV commercials, now they’ve created an original, hybrid genre score for Resident Evil: Afterlife.
“Our mission for the Resident Evil: Afterlife score was to reinvent the sound of the Resident Evil saga,” said tomandandy. “At every turn, director Paul W. S. Anderson encouraged us to avoid cliché. He encouraged us to explore the edges of noise and modern sound synthesis. This was an amazing gift.”
Resident Evil: Afterlife depicts a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead. Milla Jovovich stars as Alice who continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead – and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.
Describing their creative process of composing a unique music score for Resident Evil: Afterlife, tomandandy explain, “We developed an aggressive palette of heavily distorted sounds and complex metric structures. At times the music is soft, gentle and airy, a fusion of organic sounds and electronics. Bracketing the music world with these two extremes: aggressive and distorted on one end and soft and dreamy on the other, we framed a palette, one with tremendous range.”
