Throwback Thursday: Revisiting Ian Hultquist’s ‘Animals’ Score

In this edition of Throwback Thursday, we take a look at a classic Ian Hultquist score, Animals (2015)! In contrast to his latest synth-centric score, Assassination Nation, also released on Lakeshore Records, Ian blends in more acoustic guitars in this ambient score.

Written by and starring David Dastmalchian (Ant Man, Dark Knight), Animals won many film festival Best Feature Awards including the Audience Award at SXSW. In the same year, David also won Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the Arpa International Film Festival.

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

Animals – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack also features tracks by The Pentagons, Wedding Dress, Luke Redfield, Gay Panic, Charles and Pyyramids. Which tracks are your favorites?
