Moonlight Soundtrack: The Story Behind Nicholas Britell’s Academy Award® Nominated Chopped and Screwed Score | The Frame

But while critics are lauding the film’s director, Barry Jenkins, and the performance of its cast, there’s another element that deserves a special shout-out: The score by composer Nicholas Britell. – Michelle Lanz, The Frame

 

The Frame’s Michelle Lanz goes behind the scenes with Nicholas Britell on his Academy Award®-nominated score.  Paying particular attention to the chopped and screwed aspect of his work, they get into the story behind why Director Barry Jenkins and Britell decided to employ this style and how well it added to the tension of the film.  Listen to the interview now at KPCC’s The Frame.

 Moonlight (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is out now on Lakeshore Records.
