Oskar Schuster aspired to create something that would sound like a combination
of old horror movie soundtracks and music from old computer games (from the 8
and 16-bit era). Danny Elfman’s scores for some of Tim Burton’s movies were
among his inspirations as well.
To achieve this sound, Oskar layered sampled and synthetic instruments with
his recordings of real Celesta and Dulcitone, two rare instruments with an
eerie sound. Both are played like a piano, but when the keys are struck, the
hammers hit metal plates instead of strings, producing a bell-like sound more
similar to a glockenspiel or vibraphone.
