The sound was meant to follow the same rule of simplicity.
I wanted to highlight noises that strengthened the feeling of loneliness, irritation and anxiety.
Sometimes, the sound realism was suspended to better express the character’s state of mind, like it happened in the scene where Tavi watches Angela in the carousel while the excitement cries turn into something that resembles the wind.
