In Silver and the Book of Dreams, 17-year-old Liv moves to London and meets the mysterious Henry and his group of friends, who pull her into the enthralling world of dream-travel.  She and her newfound band of dream-wanderers conduct a ritual to make their biggest dream come true, but it demands the gravest sacrifice.

Notes Barone: “Writing the score for Silver and the Book of Dreams was an immensely fulfilling and unique experience. I was immediately drawn to the story from reading the script and I wrote initial theme ideas before watching any picture. In early discussions with the director, Helena Hufnagel, we talked about how the score could serve as an emotional undercurrent of the story, bringing the audience close to the main character, Liv. The first piece I wrote was ‘Liv’s Theme,’ for which I recorded myself singing an intimate melody surrounded by layers of dream-like electronically manipulated textures and live strings. This theme became the undercurrent of the score, used in different contexts with varied instrumentation. 

The incredible visuals for all the dream worlds were really inspiring musically and allowed for me to be really experimental – to create a totally new atmosphere for each dream. A lot of the score features electronically processed synths and acoustic textures, warped vocals run through guitar pedals, and surreal bells. The story combines layers of wonder, playfulness, investigation, and heavier themes depicting grief and trauma, all of which are explored in the score.”

Adds Touring/We Are Modular: “It was a great honor for us to write and produce a couple of songs for Silver and the Book of Dreams. We had a good time in the studio, and collaborating with director Helena Hufnagel was, as always, a lot of fun for us. Being involved in the project from the beginning of the filming until the end allows us to creatively unfold. We hope the audience enjoys the film as much as we do.”
