"The idea was not to be too pathos"
How did the musician compose on such a sensitive subject?
"Like most of the time on films or series," says Yuksek.
"I start stupidly from the image, or the scenario. I do not intellectualize my work. When I get down to it, when I immerse myself in the images, I compose in an almost automatic mode."
Although Yuksek lets himself be carried away by the feelings that run through him, he is also keen to find the right balance.
“The idea was not to be too pathos. The important
was, but like in
and all projects, to find the right tone. That's what is difficult in film music. "
"I'm very happy that we don't pay attention to the music"
On this point, two scenes were particularly sensitive, according to Yuksek: the scene of the discovery of Grégory's body and that of the burial, where the mother of the child is uneasy.
This did not prevent it from falling right on the first test sent to production.
"It's a music that takes a little to the guts, but which is not ultra creepy either", estimates the composer.
"Obviously you had to find something sad and melancholy, but without adding more."
But all this work can go unnoticed when watching the series. And that's exactly what Yuksek is looking for. "If I am told that we did not pay attention to the music, frankly, I am very, very happy", explains the musician. "In a series or a film, the idea is that everything is mixed up."
