Hiding Places

AU 2013
D: Darren Vukasinovic, P: Ignition Pictures


Paris 1944. A period picture dealing with loyalty. This setting provokes many clichees which the music is constantly embracing and avoiding. The female lead has a slow Valse Musette as a companion, the clarinet is her instrument. The waltz meter connects the woman to the unknown boy entering her house. For the adversary nations use is made of musical quotes, namely the respective national anthems and prominently the "Chant du Partisans" and the "Horst-Wessel-Lied". As the drama unfolds, harmony seems to break apart until only desolation remains.

Excerpts from the score:
