This score is rather dark,menacing,haunting,suspenseful and dramatic.The excellence of this score lies in the haunting soprano voice of Sumi Jo,the use of poweful brass and percussion section,and of course,the haunting and dissonant strings.As the forces of evil appear,bombastic percussion and brasses illustrate so,haunting strings reflect to the fears that lies in the hearts and souls of humans,whereas Sumi Jo' s excellent haunting voice illustrates the fears of mortals and the power of evil at the same time.There are some abstract cues which uses playful rhytms (brasses or flutes) and haunting strings at the same time to illustrate that the condition of safety is only the creation of our mind,but does not exists at all.Highly recommended.
