EXPLORE GIL TALMI'S ACCLAIMED ORIGINAL SCORE




When composer Gil Talmi suggested using paper in our soundtrack, I was speechless. On one level it almost seemed obvious — we were making a film about the versatility of paper and its ability to encourage and embolden creativity. A film about paper's qualities as both a technical and totally freeing medium. But it also seemed like it would be so hard to pull off well!

But so it went. And the next time Gil and I met we were in a custom-fashioned sound booth (courtesy of Gil), made just for making noise with paper — paper of all textures, thicknesses, grains and timbres. We made it up as we went along, learning the sounds of paper by ripping, crumpling, hitting, flicking, drumming and, of course, folding.

It's been a thrill to be able to supplement the amazing original score that Gil is writing with paper sounds. So many of the ideas about paper that the film aims to convey visually are now also being communicated through sound. It's such a fitting score for our project, bringing origami to life through music, finding inspiration in the complex and the simple, the restrained and the boundless, like the art form itself.
