The Addams Family 2 (2021)
In Conrad Vernon’s and Greg Tiernan’s visually lavish sequel, we again visit the Addams Family ‘old country’ European roots. Musically we relished the opportunity to explore things from that perspective, and arrived at Gypsy Music as a way to access the history and the dark humor of the family as they migrate to America to start their new lives. Combining gypsy instrumentation and modalities from Spain and Eastern Europe with a cinematic orchestra gave us a tremendously colorful and lively palette to work with. Adding a dash of large gothic organ and musical saw to the brew, we created a sound that moved easily between Large & Frightening and Whimsical.
