Ian Hultquist’s ‘Animals’ Score Illustrates The Complex Emotions Of Two Addicts In Love
“I’m thrilled that you will be able to listen here to both the music that inspired the film and the music inspired by the film. My good friend and collaborator, Ian Hultquist, has composed an amazing original score that evokes the pulse of Chicago and the intense emotions of Jude and Bobbie.” -David Dastmalchian
Directed by Collin Schiffli, Animals premiered at South By Southwest last year and garnered the Grand Jury Prize for Courage in Storytelling. Starring David Dastmalchian, Kim Shaw, John Heard and John Hoogenakker, Animals is now playing in select theaters and on VOD now (find a theater).

The ambient sound is back in “Make believe” and I just get lost in it. I would love to have a score which used only that sound. It’s that minimalistic and dreamy sound that makes me want to close my eyes and fantasize. This cue is reflective and deep and I enjoy discovering its every subtlety. -Soundtrack Dreams
During the post-credits, The Pyramids’ forceful rendition of “Everything Leads Back to You” — one of many songs with plum guitar — sums up how their worldview has left few escape valves. – Film Maker Magazine
There’s one cue that stands out to me, ‘The Pool’… the theme in it is beautiful. -Soundtrack Geek
