Composer: Ludwig Göransson

It’s always a treat to get to work with Ludwig, but it’s doubly fun when the ask is something completely new. For Tenet, there was an emphasis on time manipulation not only in the story, but also in the score. I created some of the usual textures and loops that I’m often called in for, but there was a new twist: custom audio plugins. Working with ideas of time manipulation, backwards and forwards layering, and circular rhythm, I developed custom audio processing tools in Max/MSP, Reaktor, and even a from-scratch MIDI AudioUnit/VST3. Be on the lookout for behind-the-scenes videos from composer Ludwig Göransson for more details.
