Have you seen Eyes Wide Shut (one of my favorite movies)? or listened to
its soundtrack?

The piano is [almost] a 1:1 copy from the music during the "judgment
scene" of Eyes Wide Shut - actually a piece by Ligeti called "Musica
Ricercata", 2nd Movement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNixStGxIGU
Korku is even using the same pitch.

Korku's chant is very similar to the voices during the "Ritual Scene" of
Eyes Wide Shut, which takes place a bit earlier in the movie:

NTL. I've added Korku to my playlist. It's a refreshing new take on
this. And my girlfriend loves it, too!

Thanks for sharing, Ali.
