How The Whale Composer Created Atmosphere Through Music

In celebration of Brendan Fraser's triumphant cinematic return, The Whale, Screen Rant is pleased to provide this rare behind-the-scenes footage from the film.
The A24 film that won the Academy Award for Best Picture has just been published on digital, Blu-ray, and DVD by Lionsgate, and it comes with a ton of bonus features that go further into the making of the film's eerie plot.
Fraser, Hong Chau, and Sadie Sink all provide outstanding performances in Darren Aronofsky's (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan) adaptation of Samuel D. Hunter's play The Whale.

Screen Rant has an exclusive clip from The Whale's supplemental material in which composer Rob Simonsen discusses how Charlie's battle to breathe influenced the score.
The score has light sounds from a pump organ and brass instruments, but Winne Clement's overtone flute is credited by Simonsen as the source of the film's ambiance.
Clement not only accompanied The Whale on the instrument, but he also created the world's longest overtone flute, measuring in at an impressive 21 feet in length.

"People Are Amazing: Creating The Whale" and "The Sounds of the Sea: Scoring The Whale" are both supplementary features on the home version of "The Whale."
The film has a total length of 117 minutes and is accompanied by Spanish and English SDH subtitles.
