About A Worker

Composed brand theme for About a Worker, a Paris-based fashion brand working to teach factory workers to become designers, expressing their own vision of the fashion industry.

The music has three main components: factory sounds that I recorded onsite at Mode Estime  factory which were built into a custom synth patch in Kontakt, a drone constructed with slowed-down and filtered factory sounds, and a classical piano element. The theme is designed to feel like a sewing machine itself, representing the repetitive nature of the needle in the fabric and the parallel repetition of the lives of the workers, who in many parts of the world are overworked and underpaid.

–I did not record the voice over, just composed and recorded the music–
