ART FORGERY

Music Overview

Animation oriented to the TED Education platform. It tells how the notorious art forger Han van Meegeren deceived the world - and the Nazis - with his fake Vermeer paintings.

Instruments, scales, arrangements can drive important narrative movements such as geography, historical time, and emotions. Since the story was about Han van Meegeren (1889-1947) copying the artwork of Johannes Vermeer (1632-1678) and some effects even on his son Jacques van Meegeren (1912-1977), the songs of this piece aimed at driving not just emotions, but also the historical time of those three characters, artistically.

The Instruments

The Vermeer period is basically represented by the harpsichord that appears through the songs, and by the orchestra. The Van Meegeren period is represented by everything, but especially the orchestra as well, and by the old piano. And his Son period is represented by the psychedelic band. The arrangement also plays with emotion according to the narrative moments.

Sound Design

The Sound Design was developed to create a soundscape that could foster the scenes and enhance some beautiful movements of the animation, giving cohesion to the narrative.
