Film music publishing company Score Revolution is now offering opportunity to listen to several tracks from Dario Marianelli's most recent score for HUMMINGBIRD. The score is described as less percussive and more overtly emotional than is typical for the genre. Tracks like “Getting Better,” with its nervous yet soulful strings and tentative, suspenseful bass highlight the film’s rich tapestry of conflicted, constrained emotions. Even more traditionally percussive and electronic-industrial tracks like “Do You Want to Work” and “Joey’s Career” evoke a kind of colorful, interior melancholy whereas “Nun in Red” and “At the Ballet” opt for the pure, unreconstructed emotional power of the orchestra.. You can check out the samples here. So far there is no news about possible soundtrack album. Many thanks to FAbso for an update!

17. 03. 2012
Latest issue of Film Score Monthly Online features interview with Dario Marianelli discussing his score for SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN. You can read the interview after subscribing here. Here is an interesting quote from Dario about his latest score incorporating wide range of scottish and arabic instruments and merging them together with an orchestra and electronic elements:

"My very first idea, when I looked at the story, was to try to subvert the expected sonic geography. Here you have a Sheikh who loves Scotland, and a Scot who ends up having his life shuffled up by meeting with a vision totally foreign to his world. I thought the meeting and merging of those distant worlds should somehow be reflected in the music. It is always quite a challenge in any score, for me, to get the right balance between the various elements. It’s not just the balance in sound levels: I would say it is more a matter to find the point at which they are interesting and relevant to what is happening in the story, and they do not become a geographical shortcut empty of emotional meaning."

08. 02. 2012
