Nancy is a provocative thriller about love, intimacy and trust that explores and obscures the line between truth and lies. Directed by Christina Choe it stars Andrea Riseborough, Steve Buscemi, Ann Dowd and J Smith-Cameron.
The aim of the score was to create something both very human and at the same time alien and unfamiliar. Like the narrative, the score weaves between reality and psychological illusions. Most instruments are a blend of real and abstract, strings and voices for example help create an unknowable musical world. The Choir was comprised of 40 individual women from all backgrounds and ages to create the right sound and feeling. The Soprano moves between natural and synthetic sonically to help illustrate the blur between belief and delusion.
One of the ways the score depicts intense emotions of loss and fear is to create and experience musical waves of grief crashing in and then dissipating.
