Jordan Vauvert Dans la bande-originale du film Mercury Plains, Austin Wintory et Tom Strahle se retrouvent une fois de plus et, comme souvent quand ce dernier est de la partie, inutile de faire appel à un orchestre symphonique : sa seule performance avec les instruments à cordes pincées suffit à créer une ambiance mexicaine oppressante (surtout sur des pistes comme "There Aren't Any Jobs", "Juarez" ou "Desert Walk") qu'Austin Wintory complète avec du dark ambiant ou de la noise. Elle prend bien aux tripes ! Favorite track: Juarez.

Jonathan Killstring It's like Jami Seiber and The Ventures made a soundtrack to a Coen Brothers film.

Except that it's absolutely recognizably Wintory. Highly recommended. Favorite track: A Night in the Box.

Charles Burmeister's introspective MERCURY PLAINS was a wonderful canvas to play on. It's almost like an art house action film, so I found myself alternating between desolate, gentle guitar solos and vicious walls of static. As someone who finds himself writing orchestral music more often than not, projects like this are a real gift!

As ever, the performers bring the score to life and at the front and center of that is guitarist Tom Strahle. I'll let his playing doing the walking but needless to say, I can't imagine writing a score like this without a musician like him in my arsenal.

The film can be seen by going to www.MercuryPlains.com.
