THERE HAS BEEN much praise for the cinematic qualities of Nils Frahm's music – including from this parish – so it was surely only a matter of time before he scored a film.
Having held out for “something real special”, the Berlin composer has written the music for the forthcoming Victoria – and MOJO exclusively has the album version of the score to listen to in full (below).
The “one take” movie is from German director Sebastian Schipper and follows a runaway party girl whose nocturnal adventures lead her into a bank robbery.
“When Sebastian Schipper invited me to work on Victoria, I knew it was worth the long wait,” says Frahm. “Does such a strong film even need music? I realised it wouldn’t be easy to create a score that embraces these bold pictures.”
The soundtrack features cellist Anne Müller, violist Viktor Orri Árnason and Deaf Center’s Erik K Skodvin on guitar, and goes on sale on Monday (June 15). But you can listen to it in full now.
The film itself is released in Germany on June 11, with a UK cinematic run to follow. Visit www.nilsfrahm.com for more information.
