Flycatcher • Paolo Cognetti

Flycatcher

Flycatcher is a darkly humorous thriller in which none of the four main characters – Madelaine, Mae, Bing and Olive – are what they seem.

Their lives intersect, but when Bing sets his sights on Olive, nothing and no one will stop Madelaine from luring unsuspecting victims into her psychological traps.

The incidental music, using a predominantly timbral approach, in which layers of sound alternate according to different dynamic curves, and in an attempt to find a musical equivalent of the Freudian category of the uncanny, investigates the darker sides of the characters, drawing attention to the progressive deterioration of their psychological stability, and highlights the protagonist’s solitude but also her relentless and clear-minded determination.
