Quirky, moody and textural, the sound palette for The Hankerbox utilises various sounds including dulcimer, granular synthesiser, baritone guitar, strings and various warped, processed or distorted sounds to achieve an angular feel to the score. Daisy and Tom wanted the score to reflect the toxic relationship between Janice and Kenneth: on edge, cold and slightly surreal.
