A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
I first heard Disasterpeace’s music while playing the video game FEZ. I turned up my stereo and left the music blasting through my apartment even when I wasn’t playing the game. I loved his style, his melodies and sense of subtlety. I immediately knew that I had to get this person to score the horror movie I hoped to make.
I had never made a horror film before IT FOLLOWS, and I was nervous about how important music is to the genre. I knew that we needed something amazing - something beautiful and visceral that linked our movie to the past while simultaneously doing something unique. That’s a lot of pressure to place on a composer, but Disasterpeace surpassed my expectations and hopes. His score fluctuates between beauty, dread and an all-out assault of the senses.
It can be exciting to wonder about the potential creative possibilities of another artist. What would they do in this situation or that? What delicious sounds will that talent produce? That’s how I felt in anticipation of Disasterpeace’s score. I knew it would be wonderful and cool. I just didn’t know how wonderful and cool - until I heard it.
