Spread the love

Mike Patton’s soundtrack to cinematic adaptation of Paolo Giordano novel of the same name.  It came out on November 1st on Patton’s own Ipecac label.

Musically, this score is utterly unlike Patton‘s previous efforts at the form, for the films A Perfect Place in 2008 and Crank High Voltagein 2009. The feel that runs throughout this score is quite conventional by contrast. These cues represent the movement of the narratives; film and novel follow the same story line but in very different ways, and Patton is the bridge from one to the other. Hints of classical music, both choral and instrumental, are tempered by a colorful palette of taut dynamics, dizzying atmospherics, ambiences, ambitious textures, and even somewhat conventional harmony. Assembled together, the soundtrack and incidental music comprise a unique work that stands on its own as a listening experience.
