The Canal is a great horror score. It feels like it has its own unique identity while easily getting under your skin to make you feel like something is lurking in the dark right in front of your nose. “

The Canal by Ceiri Torjussen (Review) – Film.Music.Media

7-1-14 Here are the highlights from Film Score Monthly’s review on the Test soundtrack: “A synth score is the staple of low-budget movies, but Torjussen’s inventiveness and modern approach is unique and absorbing. One wonders what he could do with a full orchestra for a sweeping epic. I’m sure we won’t have to wait long to find out.” —Cary Wong
