Paul Cantelon’s Score For ‘Effie Gray’ Is Sizzling With Restrained Passion (Soundtrack Dreams) — Pre-order Now, Film Opens 4/3!

Composer Paul Cantelon Paints In The Emotions Through Music To The Artful ‘Effie Gray’ Film


“The paintings” the piano is sizzling with restrained passion. It twists and turns and it rolls trying to escape the confines. The music is beautiful and the echoes are haunting. I feel like I am in that lush Scottish countryside inside the empty walls of a house that reflects my restrictions and obstacles. I feel the loneliness of the music and I understand what the character must be going through. Paul Cantelon masters and controls this sound. –Soundtrack Dreams
