Cue of the Week: “Investigations”

0 Comment

This week’s score track from Secrets Beneath the Floorboards accompanies a classic “heroine ferreting out increasingly dire secrets” scene. These moments often involve lead actors peering at computer monitors with growing concern, presenting an opportunity for music to amp up the energy.

This being a big “a-ha!” moment in the story, it’s the first time we hear the score’s main theme in full. Previously, said theme peeped up in the form of a four-note ascending motive, sometimes leading into other melodies. (Here’s the theme’s more rustic cousin earlier in the film.) Elaborated here, a piano repeats and transforms that four-note sequence, turning it into a proper melody.
