More than just a soundtrack, their original score, alternately acoustic, electronic, electrical, can’t be classified as it goes through various music genres. The numerous ingenious instruments used illustrate this variety: : electric guitar, small piano , duck decoy, homemade noisebox, accordion, xylophone, whistle, synthesizer, Nintendo DS and several other ones, more or less academic. A rich and surprising musical universe that awakens the senses.
