Everything is Bong Joon-ho & # 39; s The lungs well balanced, from performance to set to music. The most spectacular part of the score is the track that runs over seven minutes in length: “The Belt of Faith,” which plays a sequel to the film. (Unfortunately, it was The lungsOscar-night music.)
Like the Kim family, who struggles to make ends meet, slowly dive into the park's rich mansion, equip what the park manager calls "the belt of faith" – the Kims recommend doing jobs with the Parks, relying on their recommendation, rather than gambling on hiring or open-source consulting. The track is courtesy of Kim's family reunion through this band called the band.
"It's the 7th or 9th version you're listening to," composer Jung Jae-il told Polygon in an email. Regardless of how many the track was intended to contain – and how many people and situations it was crowded with – Jung said director Bong wanted the school to produce a single texture with mixed sounds. Jung explained: "Music can be a train, and theater, actors, and scenarios can be a series of trains."
The difficulty in following that authority was to avoid simply following the news on the screen. Instead, Jung was given the job of carrying them safely, “like a bullet train.” Jung says he thought that one of his previous versions of the song was perfect, but it didn't meet Bong's satisfaction. “I drank heavily that night before,” she says. "The next morning, I joined the piano and started developing some meaningless phrases, and that led to the final version you listened to." (In a previous interview with Polygon, director Bong recalled that the struggle to get "The Belt of Faith" to the right made him fear that Jung would never work with him again.)
In the full sense of the film, Bong told Jung that he wanted to find a "sound texture" that would work throughout the film, and mentioned the thread as the main thing. "He said he was listening to Howel and Vivaldi, who is a Baroque (music) illustrator, when he wrote the script," Jung said.
But relying on ropes creates its own complexity. "Cables are very difficult to express through computers," Jung said, explaining that his writing process involved sitting down with Bong to discuss where the music was intended to go, and then writing it on the computer and making Bong listen. If Bong liked what he heard, the next step was to organize and record music. If he didn't, Jung rewrote it.
Other pieces of The lungsThe results of the school were less severe, such as "Zappaguri." That track, which plays like a forced version of "The Belt of Faith," comes at a time in a row when the Kims struggle to find the deadline, with each family member pursuing a different stressful task. "This route was completely different from the & # 39; Belt of Faith, & # 39;" said Jung. “I wanted it to work in a way of Tom and Jerry episode, ”which emphasizes each action hit rather than as" The Belt of Faith. ”The process was very simple:“ Mr. Bong liked it for the first time. ”
