Discover the secrets behind the viral sound of HBO Serie The White Lotus with composer Cristobal Tapia de Veer

Jungle sounds, hissing snakes, pan flutes, a roaring bass and chilling screams. If there is a soundtrack that captures the atmosphere of the series well (and also keeps ringing in your head for weeks), it is the score of The White Lotus, composed by Canadian Cristobal Tapia de Veer. He will appear as a keynote speaker at the BMIM x ADE Conference. The music not only plays a major role in the background in this hit series. The soundtrack of The White Lotus has one of the leading roles. The music creates the alienating and oppressive atmosphere, increases the tension and is supplemented where necessary by animal sounds. The soundtrack contributes relentlessly to the message of this dark and wry series. "The soundtrack should give the viewer the feeling that a human sacrifice could be made at any moment," Tapia de Veer said in an interview with Vulture. "The animal noises and excited cries make us view these strange humans as a group of chimpanzees. It is a form of voyeurism: we watch these privileged people doing their incomprehensible things.”
