Featuring Original Music By Ian Hultquist

Little Twig Records will release the CLINICAL – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on January 13th to coincide with the film release on Netflix.  The album features the movie’s original score by Ian Hultquist (ANIMALS, FIRST MONDAY IN MAY, THE DIABOLICAL).

“The score for CLINICAL is definitely up there as one of the hardest projects I’ve worked on. Seeing that this was my second time working with Alistair Legrand (Dir.), we know going in that we really wanted to create something bigger and bolder than we had before. CLINICAL is a densely layered film, and we felt the score needed to reflect that as much as possible,” states Hultquist.

CLINICAL is about a psychiatrist who tries to put her life back together after a violent attack by seeking to repair the life of a new patient, but he has his own terrifying history.

“The music is a melting pot of distorted voices, processed guitars, and of course one of the biggest stand-outs being live Strings & Choir. We recorded with the Budapest Scoring Orchestra in Hungary, and they were absolutely fantastic! Having these live musicians really helped elevate this score to another level. It was amazing working with them, as well as my usual gang of collaborators Sofia Hultquist (Solo Voice), Ray Suen (Solo Violin) & Erik Arvinder (Orchestrator). I was also very lucky to have the score mixed by the incredible Satoshi Noguchi. There is much to be found within these tracks, I would recommend that this soundtrack should be played LOUD,” says Ian Hultquist.
