Says Baños: "It has been such a blast working with Rodo in this film, and a great honor. It is also a great honor to work again with Lakeshore for this album as we did on the first ‘Don't Breathe’-- it was a remarkable experience. I very much hope all listeners enjoy hearing this intense mixture of sounds and tones as much as I did composing the score. Have a scary journey to see what the blindman sees."
