Call Me Kate
Robin Schlochtermeier


The original score composed by Robin Schlochtermeier for CALL ME KATE, the feature docu-drama directed by LORNA TUCKER telling the story of KATHERINE HEPBURN. The film depicts her spirit and determination, exploring her story using her own words, through a combination of hours of previously hidden and intimate audio tapes, video and photographic archive.

Hepburn was nominated for twelve Academy Awards, winning a record four for Best Actress. Her life and career were defined by stunning highs and crushing personal lows, but she also remained in control of her own story, and her distinctive defiance and enduring talent make her an icon to generations of women today. As she herself said: “I never realised until lately that women were supposed to be the inferior sex.”
This is a documentary for the outcasts, the misfits, the girls and boys uncomfortable in their own skin, who don’t conform with traditional expectations.

The composer has worked with the director before.
“I was fortunate for this to be my second film working with director Lorna Tucker (Vivienne Westwood, Ama). It was a wonderful chance to dig into the treasure trove of past Hollywood glories and mine it for a sweet, melodic orchestral palette to suit the portrayal of Katharine Hepburn.”

The documentary explores Hepburn’s character traits that lent her career the breathtaking longevity it had – grit, humour, confidence but also an underlying anxiety about being liked and appreciated. The score is an attempt to evoke these facets of her personality, at times breathless and excited, at times languid and romantic.

There is also a recurrent theme of water in the film. Hepburn spent a lot of her life in a house by the sea and was a lifelong dedicated swimmer. Many family memories sketched in the film have a link to the water somehow. The cue “Adrift” best exemplifies the influence this element had on the music.”

Robin Schlochtermeier is an award-winning composer for film, television and commercials. His debut solo album, “Spectral”, is out now on Denovali Records.
He won the award for Best Music for his original score for the psychological thriller Retreat at the British Independent Film Festival. Retreat was also nominated in six other categories including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress.
