The Weighing of the Heart

“The Weighing of the Heart” is an animated film by Rosie Benson and Laura Weber. It tells the story of Egyptian half-god Anubis, weighing the hearts of the dead and guiding their souls towards their mythical heaven Aaru. When suddenly the demon Ammit disrupts the holy ritual by wanting to devour an innocent soul, Anubis is challenged to stand up for justice. The film will have its premiere in early 2019.

For the soundtrack I worked with a string orchestra, choir and several soloists (duduk, bansuri, vocals) as well as synthesizers. I tried to create a distinctive musical world for this film in order to serve the mystical atmosphere and the beautiful animation.
