Far From Men – Out Now
“Very often a tension can happen between music and picture that is about chance and a kind of unknowingness that can be really amazing. Just by putting together two things that were created in isolation, music and film, suddenly something quite magical can happen.” – Nick Cave
The latest ravishing score by Cave and Ellis is for director David Olehoffen’s Far From Men and is out now on Bad Seed Ltd.
Far From Men was a triple prizewinner at the Venice film festival (2014) and stars Viggo Mortensen and Reda Kateb. Adapted from a short story by Albert Camus, it is a powerful tale of divided loyalties and colonialist violence during Algeria’s war of independence. With its mesmeric drones, pointillist piano jabs, weeping strings and nerve-jangling electronics, this is one of the duo’s most emotive and experimental soundtracks to date, sounding both achingly intimate and cosmically vast.
