Movie trailers typically feature temp music. I don't know why!
But yeah, it sounds like a moody Bernard Hermann score. Bits of Khachaturian, bobs of Shostakovich. All of Win & Regine's sensibilities are represented, and I had a ball with the orchestration and some of my own bits... but it's definitely very far removed from any of our other projects. It is not Belle & Sebastian's soundtrack to "Storytelling".
The curiosity over this is driving me nuts. Diaz might have spilled the beans about the plot, to a certain extent, at Comic Con, but they've still managed to keep the new footage + score neatly under wraps. Gah.
Kelly's been cagey over whether the Owen/ Win/ Régine score's going to get a full release, Owen, care to shed any light on that...?
What a corker of a soundtrack. Really, really great - the suspense in the film was more intense than I've experienced in a long time and this was almost entirely due to the score. And there was some col legno in the closing credits!
As to the film, I'm on a study year abroad in Spain so I had to see it dubbed into spanish, which is annoying, and although my spoken spanish is pretty ok, following the fast-paced and important parts of a film with such unusual vocabulary was tough - I got the general gist, but I'll have to watch it again in english. Anyway, I loved it - really unusual plot denouement, loved the taking-the-metaphor-too-far à la Synechdoche, and it was one of the few roles that fits Diaz's slightly wooden, childlike acting style. Would definitely recommend it. But be warned it's an intense experience, would go as far as to categorize it as a horror film. But hey if it gets too much, just close your eyes and enjoy Owen and his friends!
