EMA Scores '#HORROR' Film

EMA Scores '#HORROR' Film
Though EMA tackled real-life terror last month with the mass-shooting-analyzing "Active Shooter" single, the solo artist will be affixing her work to a more fictional piece of horror next month. It's been revealed that she's been tapped to deliver the score to Tara Subkoff's upcoming feature, #HORROR.

The soundtrack touches down December 11 via Matador, with EMA (a.k.a. Erika M. Anderson) and longtime collaborator Leif Shackelford having cooked up an hour's worth of music for the movie. It's said to feature plenty of strings and electronics, with the results having come under the watchful eye of the director.

EMA elaborated in a statement: "We worked really closely with Tara [Subkoff] on the music. She definitely always had an opinion on what she liked and what she didn't. It was my first score, so I'm not sure if all composers end up spending weeks in a room with the director, but that's how we did it."

It's further explained that Shackelford generally handled the string arrangements while EMA worked on the main themes, all of which strive for "something modern that also recalled classic horror genre music."

EMA said, "I love the eeriness of the vocal synth samples and I think it gives the score a very uncanny vibe that matches the themes of the film."

As for the film, it's said to focus on a group of young girls who get caught up in a deadly social media experiment. Ultimately, Subkoff's film "examines a world of escalating cruelty and alienation through an online game where scoring likes comes at the cost of human lives." It stars Chloe Sevigny, Taryn Manning and Natasha Lyonne.

You'll find the first EMA-driven reveal from the score, "Amnesia Haze," down below, where you'll also find a tracklisting for the soundtrack release and a trailer for the film.
