De Bohemen is a short movie by Julian Verkerk, for which I composed and produced the music together with Bart Bruinsma. The movie is set in the 70's, following a young writer who is working on his next book, when he suddenly finds a adolescent boy, unconscious on the sidewalk. He takes the boy in and a complicated relationship ensues.
To match the atmosphere of the movie, we decided to write for a saxophone quartet, clarinet, flute, rhodes and some drums. The whole score is rooted in 60's/70's jazz, though freely interpreted to create a unique sound for the movie.
For the finale of the movie, we wrote and produced a complete 70's motown-style song; 'Ready When You Are'.
The soundtrack album is available at Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, and many other platforms.
