Haxan Cloak was brought into the project to work alongside Aster for the film, who not only wrote the music for the film but also helped develop vocal language for the characters with in the movie.
“Trying to live up to the expectations of a director who wrote the script to my music was an intimidating task,” Krlic said in a press release before adding: “but in the end I believe it’s been the most rewarding and deeply educational experience I’ve ever had. Not only was working with Ari Aster an honour, but the work was a true collaboration.”
