Weekly Listening: “I’m Helping the Idiot” (The Witcher S1)

👂 listening Nov 14, 2023

I’m late to the game on this soundtrack, but WOW is it good.

Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli created an incredible musical landscape for the opening season of Netflix’s interpretation of The Witcher, performing and recording 50+ homemade and ancient instruments in their home studio.

The resulting soundtrack feels genuine and rustic—the imperfections of live performances are often what gives that feeling of warmth and “homey”ness to music.

This is one of my favorite tracks, as I love the harmonic winks and dancing melody…

… but to be honest, I think the entire S1 soundtrack is a masterpiece.

Can’t recommend highly enough!
