Nick Cave and Warren Ellis have composed another score, this time for the film “La Panthére Des Neiges”. The album will be released via Invada Records (rest of the world) / Lakeshore Records (America).
L’attaque de Loups
Des Affûts Elliptiques
La Neige Tombe
Un Être Vous Obsède
L’apparition: We Are Not Alone
Below is the promo video for the song “We Are Not Alone” which was the first offering they gave us.
And now they’ve shared “Les Cerfs”, which is just as haunting.
La Panthère Des Neiges is a film by Marie Amiguet and Vincent Munier.
In the heart of the Tibetan highlands, photographer Vincent Munier brings writer Sylvain Tesson on his quest to find the snow leopard.
He introduces him to the subtle art of waiting from a blind spot, tracking animals and finding the patience to catch sight of the beasts.
Through their journey in the Tibetan peaks, inhabited by invisible presences, the two men engage in a conversation on our place among the living beings and celebrate the beauty of the world.
In the USofA it will be released under the title “The Velvet Queen” and it will be distributed by the boutique label Oscilloscope Laboratories.
Warren Ellis said in a statement: “There is something about the heart of this film that draws you in. I realized after a day, that I wanted to do whatever it took to compose an entire original score. The film deserved to have its own musical voice. I booked five days and asked Nick if he could come in for a day to write a theme song and play some piano. He saw the film and stayed for four days. In the end we made what I think is one of the most beautiful films we have ever worked on. One of my favorite experiences ever working on a project. The stars are the animals in all their wild glory, as we have never seen them before, and man in reverence and wonder.”
