While attending this year’s Venice Film Festival where the film was premiered, Yorke participated in a discussion to talk about his work composing his debut score. “There’s a way of repeating in music which can hypnotize, and I kept thinking to myself it was a form of making spells,” he said.
“So when I was working in my studio, I was making spells—and that sounds really stupid but that’s how I was thinking about it.
“It was a sort of freedom I’d not had before: I’m not working in the format of a song or arrangement, I’m just exploring. I’m putting things out into my studio and seeing what my studio is bringing back.”
