To celebrate Scream Factory’s recent release of the film on Blu-ray, and because it’s just an incredible score, Matthew Monagle and I have written separate pieces on it; Matthew ponders Damon Albarn’s contributions and how the score can be seen as a bridge between Blur and the later experimental sounds of Gorillaz, while I contemplate Nyman’s more classical contributions, which draw inspiration from American composers such as Aaron Copland and John Cage.
Head over to Paracinema to read ‘em. Matthew's is here, and mine is here.
