In Yowis Ben 2, I got to experience not only composing the movie score, but also collaborating with Bayu Skak to create two of its soundtracks (“Lagu Galau” & “Gandolane Ati”).
It was such an awesome experience and definitely revived my long-lost desire to play in a band again, which something I did regularly in the past. So I was very excited to do this!
In process of making the movie score, I got to turn the musical notation into background music to accompany the scene, especially the emotional parts in it. It wasn’t easy, as I always say, composing movie score for comedy genre is the hardest. But thank God, I could manage it and hopefully people can also get hooked with the music.
While for the movie soundtrack, there was a little difference from the movie score because the story I and Bayu Skak wanted to tell can be elaborated from lyrics and the music itself.
Overall, making the soundtracks with Bayu Skak was fun and such a unique experience for me because of its lyrics. “Lagu Galau” & “Gandolane Ati” are both in Javanese and it is something I never did before.
Hope you enjoy listening to both of them!
