Hermann Hermann Soundtrack - Doug Gallob

Hermann Hermann

Directed by Joel Stangle, "Hermann Hermann" is film noir with a delicious Hitchcockian flavor.

Someone has murdered Hermann Hermann. Or have they? Arthur, on his last day as a detective, recognizes the name of the victim from a case he handled on his first day, 25 years ago. Now he cannot let the case rest. He must know the truth about Hermann Hermann.

"This film was so much fun to work on. The music needed to be very suspenseful, and very dangerous. It really needed to evoke the musical flavors of the classic noir films. I relied heavily on traditional string orchestration in some places (think Bernard Hermann's "Psycho" soundtrack) and on intimate jazz orchestrations in others (think "Harlem Nocturne"). I left most of the performances as rough and as dangerous as I thought I could get away with."
