Death Waltz Recording Co., in conjunction with Back Lot Music, is excited to present the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to MA, featuring a terrific synth score by award-winning composer Gregory Tripi.

Tate Taylor’s excellent psychological horror film MA finds Octavia Spencer offering suspicious generosity with some warning signs — a classic tale of what happens when something seems too good to be true. Composer Gregory Tripi’s fantastic, mostly electronic score is laced with the type of ambient beauty, ominous energy, and berserk passages that a story this unhinged requires. He uses analog synths, along with elements such as a live cello, pitched wine glasses and a ukulele, made from a bento box, to craft a score that, like Spencer’s Ma character, lulls you in with a false sense of security before stopping you cold with a deeply crushing sense of terror that hits you at your core.
