There’s something about the sweeping chime of a flute or the quiet beat of a bodhrans that makes me dream. Oh and the violin, forgot about that. Michael Brooke[sic] makes use of that wonderful instrument in the heartfelt opening moments of the score. The music has my attention from the get go because of this quiet and almost mournful tone which almost makes me think of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ music. – Soundtrack Dreams
