BACKGROUND /
"Machines could take 50% of jobs in the next 30 years": Moshe Vardi, Professor of computer science, Rice University Meet Alice, holder of the last recognisable job on Earth, trying to make sense of her role in an automated world. 'The Last Job on Earth' is a film produced in collaboration with the Guardian Sustainable Business section. See the full article on The Guardian.


APPROACH / 
The music composition is inspired by animated feature film soundtracks in that it follows the narrative and reacts to each scene accordingly. Instruments were chosen that could convey both a sense of optimism and the uncanny so as to encompass the emotional content of the film. As a story set in the near future, sound design looks to bridge the gap between our timelines by remaining in a comprehensible space and avoiding anything overly high-tech.
