Alias Grace (2017)

Alias Grace is based on a novel of the same name written by celebrated author Margaret Atwood of a true story that took place in Canada in 1843. We wanted the score to mirror the formal rigidity of British Colonial 19th Century society. We chose a chamber group of virtuosic musicians to lay out the complicated fabric of the musical world of Alias Grace. There was interwoven string parts, often with one player per part in the traditional way, colored by fleeting woodwinds, piano and even the occasional church organ – all of it underlined with a dark thread of mystery and growing doom as we slowly move towards the inevitable violence of the crime.”
