2015 issue on 180g vinyl LP= The seasoned cinematic scorers and collaborators add another feature film to their growing list of credits.
Long-time collaborators and experienced cinema composers Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have unveiled their latest joint work for the big screen in the form of the original soundtrack for new French film Loin Des Hommes (Far From Men), which theMusic.com.au is privileged to be streaming today ahead of its release Down Under.
Due to hit digital and physical stores this Friday, 15 May, via Kobalt, the soundtrack is built largely around violin loops recorded by Ellis, with piano forming the second major sonic cornerstone as elements of guitar, flute, mandolin, celeste, percussion and other instruments drift in and out. This method of building on pre-existing loops was a fresh step for the two veterans, which Cave describes in a statement as "suddenly an amazing way to write because you didn't have to do things from scratch".
"Warren would put on a loop that would create this instant atmosphere, and we could go off and work on top of that. To sit at a piano, put chords onto a linear loop and make something out of that is just an easy and very pleasurable way to work."
