Today I’m introducing you to Snowdrops, which is a French duo featuring Mathieu Gabry and Christine Ott. Under the name Snowdrops they make music for theater, dance and movies as well as giving concerts. Their speciality is to play pretty much anything with keys on it; synthesizers from all times!
This track is taken from their album Manta Ray released by the UK label Gizeh and is the original score for the movie with the same name. The movie won the best film award of the Orizzonti selection of Venice Film Festival, for its release in 2018.
Tell us something about Manta Ray!
I guess it’s a some particular track of the score, for different reasons… That’s one of the few we did not composed to the images of the movie. The instrumental color is also maybe different here. We’re certainly in a more ‘modern-classical’ vein, or something like that.. although the rest of the soundtrack is maybe a bit more dark-ambient sometimes. We really love this track, very organic, and simple, on the surface. An anecdote about it; we were very touched when the Venice Festival crew decided to broadcast that piece on the red carpet before the film premiere. We were very surprised of that ! Another nice memory for sure.
Hope you’ll enjoy the track, the disc, and also the movie when it will be released in swedish cinemas. I hope so one day… I know it were at Stockholm Film Festival last november, but don’t know about the future of the movie in your country.
Thank you for this! And I will definitely keep a look out for the movie. And everyone else should too!
