Once Upon a Ladder

After we finished composing, recording and producing the soundtrack for “Once Upon a Ladder”. The film was premiered at Nederlands Film Festival 2016 in Utrecht, and broadcasted on national television

For this film we recorded a string quartet at the ‘Roode Bioscoop’
(a small theater in Amsterdam with a great atmosphere and even better acoustics). >


Incredibly enough, one day before the start of his pension and just hours before his 65th birthday, window cleaner Alfred suddenly finds himself stricken by vertigo. A 64-year and 364-day journey through glass and lather reveals why he is afraid to either go up or go down the ladder. And whilst he finds himself to be an accidental Cupid by hitting anyone but himself with his arrows, it’s not until that particular day, 44 years after meeting Dirkje for the first time, that he realizes he has to point the arrow at himself.

After writing, recording and producing the score for “Once upon a ladder”,
we had our last mixing day on a big screen. >
