AR Rahman has composed the score for Netflix’s upcoming docu-series House of Secrets: The Burari Deaths’.
The award-winning composer, who has predominantly scored soundtracks for feature films across multiple languages, said House of Secrets gave him an opportunity to have a more “nuanced musical approach”.
Netflix’s House of Secrets: The Burari Deaths traces the mystery behind India’s infamous Burari Deaths, where eleven members across three generations of a family were found dead under strange circumstances in their house in Delhi. Directed by Leena Yadav and Anubhav Chopra, the original score of the docu-series is composed and produced by the widely-acclaimed A R Rahman.
“Collaborating with Leena Yadav ji on House of Secrets was a unique experience for me. Since the docu-series concerns a sensitive, complex issue, it required a distinct, nuanced musical approach — enigmatic yet gripping. I am glad to have worked on such a project, which so far has been an unexplored territory for me,” Rahman said in a statement.
Taking to Twitter to announce his collaboration on the project, the composer said it was a “pleasure” to work with the director and described his approach to scoring the series, along with the trailer:
