Out now – Alexandra Benedict & Tris Taylor: Sleeping Lions – OST + Remixes [PLM Soundtracks]
Third in a series of PLM Soundtracks releases by Alexandra Benedict & Tris Taylor, the ‘Sleeping Lions’ score uses piano, violin, Wurlitzer, balloon bumps, celeste and music box, along with a soundscape including wind, dog barks and a bicycle.
‘Sleeping Lions’ was composed without reference to picture. Instead, director Oliver Crowther briefed Benedict & Taylor with a list of estimated timings, and references to Tarkovsky and classic French cinema.
The film has remained unseen since its premiere at the Curzon Renoir in 2010.
Neotropic has given us a stunning choral remake and Benbo has transfigured the track into sad house music suitable for a melancholic pool party.
For the original: think tragedy, lullaby, impressionist classical.
Check it all out at the official release website sleepinglions.plmsoundtracks.com – which also has all the buy/listen links.
And we have a special Premium option in the PLM Shop which gives you all instrumental and acapella versions too.
