THE DARK HOUR
Music Composed by
Our companion to the Alfons Conde album The Abandoned features another exquisite horror score written by the Spanish composer in 2006: The Dark Hour (original Spanish title: La hora fria). This one was performed by the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra and is an atmospheric symphonic score that has a lot of dark but colorful music to offer the listener.
"We wanted to surround this film with a suffocating, anguishing, claustrophobic atmosphere. The key to the story is that the characters cannot leave the place where they live. Solitude is also a big theme," Alfons Conde explains.
The score makes use of several interesting devices, including the pipe organ, a gothic approach which is contrasted beautifully by the solitary theme duet on bassoon and clarinet. Just like The Abandoned, this album features a lengthy bonus track, the exciting orchestral score from Elio Quiroga's award-winning short Home Delivery.
