A famous quote says that “talking about music is like dancing about architecture.” That is pretty much the challenge you have to face when you discuss score with a composer. When I met with Ben Wallfisch for the first time
we talked for hours
about what the score should sound like. That’s when I confirmed once more that dancing about architecture is not a futile exercise at all. In fact
it’s a creative
and yes
a confusing exercise to get in tune with the other artist.
The complexity of scoring IT is that it’s much more than a horror movie. It’s a character driven horror drama. You have to check a lot of boxes including not only tension and horror
but also emotion and humor: dealing with at least eight different main characters
and yet achieve an esthetic consistency. Ben understood this challenge and created a masterful score that elevated the story in a sublime way. Without any doubt one of the most gratifying moments of making a film is to feel the music bring the scenes to life. But when the music exalts these emotions beyond the expectations
then you have an understanding of the genius behind the composition.
– Andy Muschietti


Every now and again
you come across a movie where the storytelling is so powerful
the subtext so visceral
the synergy between director
 narrative and actors so palpable
that as a composer you can feel the music being energized by something so much bigger than what’s just on the screen. To collaborate with Andy Muschietti is to be invited into a thrilling
deeply inspiring and richly creative dynamic space where nothing is off limits. Any idea
no matter how seemingly far-fetched
is examined. A conversation unfolds
a journey commences and unique musical discoveries are made.

In our many early conversations
we realized that whilst the score needed to be firmly rooted in the classic symphonic adventure movie scoring tradition of the 1980s
it also needed to embody something unique. Andy’s interpretation of Stephen King’s masterpiece is so much more than a horror movie: it’s a stunning and arresting film that inspires and moves the audience with its underlying message of the power we have when we truly unite
despite our differences. Creating a score to tell the story of a shapeshifting antagonist of unimaginable evil
that can only be defeated when a group of individuals come together as one
required metamorphic themes
extremes of sonic irreverence and heartfelt quiet; and most importantly
 a musical language that strived to be constantly informed by the profound emotional truth driving the heartbeat of the filmmaking. Collaborating with Andy to bring his vision to life was a true honor
and as a lifelong Stephen King fan
a great privilege.
