We Are Animals (Soundtrack)
Not yet reviewed.
We The Animals is the award-winning new film from Jeremiah Zagar (In A Dream).
Based on the best-selling novel by Justin Torres, We The Animals is Zagar's first narrative feature. It reunites Zagar with Nick Zammuto, the renowned composer and co-founder of beloved collage-pop pioneers, the Books.
Inspired by the film's setting in rural upstate New York - and influenced by the early ambient electronic music that galvanized the Books two decades ago - Zammuto pairs that earthen, wooded isolation with dynamic pulses of customized electronics and sparse, crystalline layers of melodic soft synths.
The juxtaposition is arresting, and gives the soundtrack a unique heft befitting of its subject matter - and betraying of its minimal instrumentation.
Beautifully edited and sequenced to act as both a companion to the film and a standalone album, We The Animals: An Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is as subtle as it is startling, and succeeds in making even the heaviest emotions feel momentarily weightless.
