I just finished the music score for the supernatural horror film "Alice D" a film directed by Jessica Sonneborn produced by Christopher Maltauro and Kristina Page. The film features beautiful photography by Eric Latek.
Storyline: In the early 1900's the Davenport House was a famous and successful brothel, until a young prostitute named Alice killed herself there. After her death, the brothel became haunted by Alice's ghost, and was eventually abandoned. One hundred years later, the old structure is renovated into a beautiful mansion. It is still rumored to inhabit the ghost of Alice. Despite this, the new owner; the rich and arrogant heir to the Davenport fortune, decides to throw a wild party for his first night in the house.
Jessica's idea form the beginning was to score the movie with beautiful, elegant, yet creepy music that would reflect Alice's personality. Her past as a defiant forced prostitute is represented by a melancholic piano melody accompanied by low strings. Her present as a wild ghost is represented by strong atonal contemporary harmonies showing up her fury, a goal we feel was successfully achieved. In my opinion this movie is an example of how far filmmakers can go when passion and love for good movie making are combined.
