The music for La Lune Folle is based on the classic Debussy composition Clair de Lune. There have been may recordings and arrangements but few worked for my film. So I went to my long-time music collaborator Andrew T. Mackay from Bombay Dub Orchestra and explained what I wanted. Between us we discussed how the music would feature in the film and how it would affect the story.
The central part of the film’s score is based around a live performance and for this I wanted piano, cello and violin. We actually recorded viola as well as Andrew re-arranged and orchestrated the piece for Piano Quartet bringing his own take on the popular classic.
Below is a sample stereo mix of the score which was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London and mixed by Abhishek Khandalwal at Yash Rash Studios in Mumbai.
