Captain Fantastic Soundtrack CDs

If an alt. rock band has captured a spirit of ethereal, Earth mother transcendence, then the gentle, drifting melodies and angelic voice of Iceland’s Sigur Ros could be considered the equivalent of one-ness with the woods. – Daniel Schweiger, Assignment X


Assignment X interviews composer Alex Somers on his score for the Cannes Film Festival Award-winning film, Captain Fantastic.   Alex talks about his long-time collaboration with his partner, Jón “Jónsi” Þór Birgisson of Sigur Rós, how they met at Berklee College of Music, and their innovative use of prepared instruments and technology to create their truly unique vocals and instrumentals.  Read the full interview here.  Captain Fantastic (Music From The Film) and Captain Fantastic (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) are both out now on Lakeshore Records.
