Most of what you hear on the album is used in the film. So, that was a big purpose. I’ve got a lot more material, but I didn’t want to release stuff that wasn’t going to be used in the film. There are a couple pieces that aren’t used that are in there, but I really thought they needed to be there.
It is a very fragmented kind of film score. I didn’t really go into it certain of what we were going to come out with and I kind of felt that, to some degree everyone, was kind of feeling around in the dark trying to find what was out there and these were the things that the picture required. There’s quite a distinction between some of the pieces, there’s a lot of the very drony pieces that never exist in the film in their entire.

The Tree Of Life, Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Music by Alexandre Desplat
David Ng from the Los Angeles Times writes,
In each of his five feature films to date, Malick has used classical music as his principal soundtrack. “The Tree of Life” features selections and snippets from more than 30 individual pieces — including works by Brahms, Mahler, Bach, Górecki and Holst. They are all woven together seamlessly with the help of some original music by Alexandre Desplat.
A movie that envelops the intimate story of a family between the birth and death of the universe, “The Tree of Life” is a cosmic experience that resists easy narrative summary. The film won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in May but has polarized critics and audiences. At its core, the movie focuses on the conflict between the natural and the spiritual worlds, which is to say that it pits the seen versus the unseen.
Malick’s choices of music stand in for the unseen in this thematic equation, though not always in obvious ways. The media-shy filmmaker is said to be a classical-music buff, along with being a birdwatcher and a hiking enthusiast. His soundtrack selections for “The Tree of Life” could spawn a lengthy essay on their own. Here are a handful of key pieces that provide the movie with some of its most musically inspired and memorable moments …
