# Limboland

  • What:
    • Film: This is a short doco that Lachie and journalist Mridula Amin filmed about the realities of Australia's disgraceful offshore processing system. It was picked up by a number of media organisations including the New York Times and was included as part of the official selection at Sydney Underground Film Festival 2019.
    • Score: When choosing instrumentation and creating the melodies I was inspired by traditional music of the pacific islands. I tried to create a sense of anxiety by surrounding these tropical, organic ideas with dissonant, swirling synthesizers. I was particularly struck by the interviewees' experiences of time in Nauru. They spoke about how they would lose track of the days and so I tried to emulate this by slowing down, speeding up and reversing elements in the score.
