1980. A bright young photographer is pushed to the edge by his teacher’s seductive philosophies and unorthodox methods, all in the name of great Art. Because everyone knows trauma is the essence of all the greatest art...

Whilst MUSE is a period piece, I was eager that the score stay true to the ideas that drove the story, rather than letting 80s sounds define the music. George's blooming from student to artist is felt both melodically and in the use of instrumentation - solo violins grow gradually to a string quartet and eventually a full string orchestra.
