Some new photoplay music online

Unread post by Rodney » Tue Nov 04, 2008 7:44 am

Since our score for WAY DOWN EAST will be released by Kino in two weeks, I've posted two love theme mp3s at

J.S. Zamecnik's Atonement is our opening music, and the theme for the "true love" between David and Anna. The bitter-sweet Mountain Song (from Gaston Borch's Mountain Music suite) is used for the seduction of Anna by Lennox Anderson, as well as for scenes when she thinks back on her tragic first love and her lost child. One of the things I love about the film is how Lillian Gish is able to communicate Anna's real regret over losing the beautiful illusion -- and the child of -- that doomed relationship.
