Nick Zammuto - We the Animals OST
Temporary Residence Ltd.
We The Animals is the award-winning new film from Jeremiah Zagar (In A Dream). Based on the best-selling novelby Justin Torres, We The Animals is Zagar's first narrative feature. It reunites Zagar with Nick Zammuto, therenowned composer and co-founder of beloved collage-pop pioneers, the Books. Inspired by the film's setting inrural upstate New York - and influenced by the early ambient electronic music that galvanized the Books twodecades ago - Zammuto pairs that earthen, wooded isolation with dynamic pulses of customized electronics andsparse, crystalline layers of melodic soft synths. The juxtaposition is arresting, and gives the soundtrack a unique heftbefitting of its subject matter - and betraying of its minimal instrumentation. Beautifully edited and sequenced to actas both a companion to the film and a standalone album, We The Animals: An Original Motion Picture Soundtrack isas subtle as it is startling, and succeeds in making even the heaviest emotions feel momentarily weightless.
