Manuel lives in a small coastal town. He plays bass in a band with his best friends. One of them is Felipe, with whom he shares a strong friendship. Unbreakable bond. Until the time comes to put it to test…

Composer Statement about the Music:

Making the music for Sublime was a very nurturing process for me. The 6 songs the protagonists band play during the story were the greatest challenge. I felt compelled to put myself in the shoes of the characters even before the casting happened. At times I went looking for my teenager rock bands experience. But hindsight was not enough, I needed to investigate the particularities of these character. How does Manu compose? Would Felipe make this riff? Would they use this word in the chorus? Would Fran sing this kind of melody?

The 3 songs from Azul’s brother band, are closer to the music that I listened to in my youth and that I still enjoy today. The composition work in this case was more natural. And regarding the incidental music, I felt those pieces had to be minimalist since the screenplay already had a lot of music performed by the characters.

For all this, I think that this album offers a kind of narrative within, and it is my wish that Sublime is a story that can be heard, even separated from its images.

Director Statement about the Music:

I’m delighted by this music. I wrote ‘band plays song 1’ or ‘Manu composes song 5’ in the screenplay. And now, after an amazing work with Emilio, I believe there couldn’t be better music for this film than this one. And I love we have this album version. I enjoy listening to it while I walk, especially when I walk in the sea shore.

Label Plaza Mayor Company Ltd

Après la mort brutale d’un proche lors d’une séance d’hypnose qu’elle animait, Louise, jeune psychiatre tente de se reconstruire en s’installant dans un petit village de l’Aubrac. L’arrivée d’un nouveau patient au comportement étrange va la plonger dans une spirale infernale. Sa vie et celles des autres vont devenir un véritable enfer.

Yvi Slan s’est inspiré de György Ligeti, Krzysztof Penderecki, l’avant garde de la musique contemporaine polonaise des années 70. Il y a ajouté ses influences de fan de musique de science fiction comme les frères Bebe et Louis Barron. Yvi Slan a mélangé le tout aux bandes sons de films de genres actuelles comme les grosses productions internationales de films d’horreurs ou fantastiques. Son passé de compositeur de musiques électroniques, donne une musique résolument racé, ultra typé, moderne, comprenant tous les codes du cinéma de genre tout en s’en distinguant en y rajoutant sa « touch ».

Mastemah est une bande son, sombre, froide, triste, planante, totalement psychédélique, douce et ultra-violente et surtout sans compromis.

Song “Snow Leopard” by Sillyboy’s Ghost Relatives

Label Plaza Mayor Company Ltd

Nelly has escaped from her wealthy and controlling family. As she dances in a strip club, she meets Markos, a small yet charismatic gangster, who helps her run away from her stepfathers henchmen. Markos soon becomes her protector and lover. He brings her into Broadway, Athens, an abandoned entertainment complex squatted by a small community of dancers, tramps, thieves and a captive monkey.

For a while, everything goes well, even when Broadway hosts a mysterious man, injured and covered with bandages, wanted dead by Athens’ most dangerous mafia. However, when Markos gets arrested and imprisoned, the newcomer will take an unexpectedly important place in the gang.

For years, I have admired the work of Gabriel Yared.

I wished that one day I could have the privilege to work with him, even though such a scenario didn’t seem very likely, given the scale of films produced in Greece. I would never have imagined that the stars would align for this to happen in my first feature film.

For the music of “Broadway”, I envisioned a mixture of pre-existing dance songs (from “Fame” to Greek pop songs of the 70s) with an orchestral score that would convey the mysterious and romantic intonations of the story.

“Broadway” is a film, which draws from different genres – it is a thriller, a love story, a variété of sorts – so the music plays a key part in bridging these different traditions and moods.

The idiom of Gabriel Yared’s work was exactly what this tale called for. His music is always surprising, modulating between ever-changing climates:  mysterious and yet deeply romantic; sharp and precise in composition, but fluid in its emotional resonance.

In ‘Broadway’, the music is not just underscoring the events. It is a force that drives the story, weaving a web of dramatic possibilities. It is the fuel, which sets the characters in motion, leading them through the twists and turns of chance.

And yet, like all great works, Gabriel’s music has a narrative of its own and will live and reverberate far beyond the screen.

Christos Massalas

Director

The director Christos Massalas and I met very early on in the process, before the film was shot. We discussed the film in detail, and also the colours and atmosphere of the music. I love being involved in films at an early stage because this gives me the time to reflect on the story and truly focus on its essence and spirit. 

After watching the first edit of the film, I began writing my main themes which I then crafted to particular scenes after the film was finalised.

Broadway really impressed me from the first time I saw it. It contains many unique qualities and immediately drags you in its microcosmos with all the darkness, mystery, and romance.

Christos’ attention to detail is admirable and it’s evident in all aspects of this film. He is a very promising young director who is also very musical. 

We had a wonderful collaboration and I am sure both Christos and his film will have a great future.

Bright, intelligent, passionate and free, Eleanos is Karl Marx’s young daughter. Among the first women to link the themes of feminism and socialism, she takes part in the worker’s battles and fights for women’s rights and the abolition of child labor. In 1883 she meets Edward Aveling and her life is crushed by a passionate but tragic love story….

“Music was fundamental in contributing to the tone of the film. As I always do, I made my musical choices while writing the script, choosing to use for certain situations the music of the Downtown Boys, a contemporary Marxist punk. Rock band. I thought that this transgressive band would render the images more powerful, bringing them somehow out or above time, and adding also an ironic detachment from the most dramatic events. The Downtown Boys have also reinterpreted the French L’Internationale. On the other hand, in order to comment romantically and ironically on the more sentimental parts, I used pieces of classical music, mainly by Chopin but also Liszt, reinterpreted with modern sounds and arrangements by Gatto Ciliegia contro il Grande Freddo, the band I’ve always worked with for the musical scores of my films and whose melancholic atmospheres I am particularly fond of.”

BENDING REALITY

BENDING REALITY

By Maximilien Mathevon

Reality and Questions without answer…

Label Plaza Mayor Company Ltd

Bending Reality talks about the perception of reality, the faculty to interpret and manipulate this reality, to transform and sublimate it. What is true, what is wrong, what are the truths that exist behind appearances and how do they parasitize them? 

I wanted to create a constantly evolving sound universe, invaded by musical interferences which distort the appearances of the music.

I have also used unusual rhythms on some tracks (7/4) to create a sense of shift and that something is not working in the usual way.

This album is a constantly changing canvas, nourished by sounds and rhythms which add up, add to each other and evolve.

“Festival de Cannes

    Sélection Officielle”

Une musique et des maux. Les notes superflues mais tellement vrais au milieu des morts et des vivants. La guerre entend faire un autre son assourdissant, bouleversant. Ici en Syrie, plus loin au Yemen et maintenant a nos portes en Ukraine.

La vie est fragile, les instants d’une émotion rare. Plus rien n’est protégé, sauf les âmes qui donne du piano, de la voix…

Gabriel Yared est ce peintre d’un chaos de vie, imaginaire d’un printemps qui pourrait éclore, mais les destins se croisent, s’embrouille et parfois c’est le réel qui se dessine entre amertumes et regards vers un ailleurs.

Les notes sont brèves, romantiques et un piano se fait entendre toujours et de plus en plus fort.

Merci de ce moment d’espoir.

Karim, un pianiste rêvant d’une carrière en Europe, vit dans une ville du Moyen-Orient déchirée par la guerre où les modes de vie modernes ont été interdits par un groupe extrémiste. Il est obligé de vendre son piano pour ramasser de l’argent et partir. Mais les choses s’enchevêtrent lorsque son piano est abattu. Karim se lance alors dans une quête dangereuse pour réparer ses clés cassées…

Broken Keys est un film sur un pianiste rêvant d’une carrière en temps de guerre. C’est un film qui traite également de la poursuite externe et interne de la liberté et de la paix par le protagoniste. Les acteurs et l’équipe ont pris un grand risque lors du tournage à la frontière entre la Syrie et l’Irak, car ces zones sont fortement touchées par la guerre en cours.

J’ai eu une grande et fructueuse collaboration avec le réalisateur, Jimmy Keyrouz. Tout d’abord, Jimmy m’a envoyé son court métrage à regarder, qui était basé sur la même histoire que Broken Keys. J’ai adoré et j’ai décidé d’aller de l’avant avec le projet. Jimmy est venu me rencontrer à Paris et nous avons eu une longue conversation sur toute la musique de piano classique qui devait être utilisée dans le film. J’ai ensuite commencé à travailler sur mes thèmes principaux pendant qu’il tournait. Il m’envoyait quelques scènes pour que je les regarde, et donc ça allait et venait.

J’ai ensuite commencé à travailler sur mes thèmes principaux pendant qu’il tournait. Il m’envoyait quelques scènes pour que je les regarde, et donc ça allait et venait. Nous nous sommes revus à Paris et avons passé quelques jours à parcourir la musique que j’ai composée, à réfléchir et à comprendre les choses ensemble. Jimmy est très musical et comprend les capacités et les qualités de la musique qui élèvent les images et engagent le public. Pour moi, c’est la collaboration idéale entre un metteur en scène et un compositeur. Broken Keys est un film remarquable qui parle à mon cœur, car il parle du pouvoir de la musique alors qu’une nation est en guerre.

World Premiere at FIFDH 2022 Geneva

In 2008, FARC second-in-command Raul Reyes, was killed in a raid orchestrated by the CIA and the Colombian army. His computers were found: ten years of thousands of emails written by the man in charge of negotiating the release of 100 hostages, including Ingrid Betancourt. Jungle Rouge delves into the secrets of the oldest communist guerrilla, as the revolutionary utopia was slowly turning into a nightmare.

Director Statement : « Depuis l’écriture, j’étais convaincu qu’il nous fallait une musique originale en complément a ces musiques diégétiques et qui n’ait pas peur de rester en arrière-plan et de se fondre dans les sonorités de la jungle afin de donner du relief a une bande-son constituée essentiellement par des sons dits « naturalistes » issus d’une certaine captation du réel. Et c’est avec idée en tête que je suis allé a la recherche du vénézuélien installe a Barcelone, Nascuy Linares, qui venait de composer la musique pour «Embrace Of the Serpent » de Ciro Guerra et « Los silencios » de Beatriz Seigner, séduit d’abord par son immense talent et ensuite par la justesse de son interprétation du scenario lors de sa lecture »

Juan José Lozano

Film Director

Composer Statement: « When I read the script and talked for the first time to Juan about the film, the main sound images we shared aimed to the emotional weight of the music track. We totally agreed from the beginning that the film did not require long musical cues, but each of them would play an important role in order to carry on the energy of the characters and the words that were not spoken.
