US 2015
D: James Tyler Cates

A mother takes her daughter and new husband to visit her father with dementia, but she suspects something is amiss upon meeting his young caretaker.

The creatives of this film were inspired by the music of productions like "Gone Girl" and "The Social Network" and asked for a score similar in style and technique. Taking up the challenge and going the extra mile, the music of "Calamity" not only plugs straight into the repertoire of popular electronic music, but also offers a very detailed behind-the-scenes construction, where no sound is pure chance and everything is closely connected to the action and characters. The instruments especially programmed for this score include several sets of footsteps, wine glasses and corks, an office printer and wolf howls.
