October 21, 2017: KNOCK CD now available
KNOCK score is now available on CD as well from Quartet Records (where you can also listen to numerous samples) as well as most specialized retailers. Visit Discography page for details and to order your copy. Here is an excerpt from the announcement: French composer Cyrille Aufort’s score is anchored by a strong network of themes, driven by Knock’s propulsive motif, full of plans and hopes. While this theme is active and always in motion, the theme for Adele lends a feminine charm to the narrative. It perfectly complements Knock’s restless personality with a childlike wonder recalling the sound of a magical music box. To bring two such wildly different characters together, Aufort introduces a third musical element, something a little more romantic to characterize the mutual attraction between the two protagonists (“Adele and Knock,” “Farewell to Adele”). The odious Lansky (a character who knows the truth about Knock) has his own espionage-flavored melody. The CD package includes a 12-page full-color booklet with liner notes by Gergely Hubai, and statements from director Lorraine Lévy and composer Cyrille Aufort.

Cyrille Aufort's score for PAST LIFE was released today by MovieScore Media. The album also features source/additional music composed by Avner Dorman and Ella Milch-Sheriff and it is now available as download with limited edition CD coming later this month. Here is a brief quote from the composer: "When Avi and I talked about Past Life, he told me it was a quest for truth of two sisters haunted by a dark secret. That’s why he the score to play with different moods so I started composing with the idea of going from dramatic, romantic and emotional themes to some kind of action music in the archives scene. The main title was composed with the character of Sefi in mind. On the one hand I wanted it to have a lyrical touch and on the other I wanted to add something else, some kind of dark quality to it. That’s what Past Life’s score is, a blend of several musical components that mirrors the feelings of the characters. I really want to thank Joy Rieger for lending her voice to this music."
