"The challenge in crafting the score for In the Electric Mist was to become familiar enough with the Cajun influences of the Bayou that they could become an integral part of the score and not merely source material that the score was written around. Buck and I traveled down to Dirk Powell's home studio and spent time listening to and recording various soloists and ensembles that Dirk knew - coming to grasp with the mixolydian mode which is at the heart of the Cajun harmonic language. I transcribed a number of classic themes - one of which ("Les Filles de Vermillion" or "Vermillion Girls") became the theme for the murdered girls in the story. After we came back to L.A. and Buck processed some of these field recordings, we headed up to Skywalker to record chamber orchestra over it. The haunting images that Bertrand captures on film inspired a unique blend of idiomatic and classic musical orchestration, which hopefully serves its purpose in the film."
