Congratulations Mica Levy on your Ivor Novello Award Nomination, Best Original Film Score, Monos. – – – “The film’s sense of surreal menace is amplified by Mica Levi’s discordant soundscape” – Film at Lincoln Center – – “vivid, disturbing musical score from Mica Levi” – The Guardian UK – – “the film’s real triumph is another pronouncedly dreamlike score from Mica Levi (Under the Skin, 2013; Jackie, 2016), whose compositions grant Monos a zesty aural dimension.” – IONCINEMA – – “Mica Levi’s unnerving score, which is one of the few creative elements above reproach, certainly helps with the sense of moral dislocation.” – THR – – “Composer Mica Levi injects unusual soundscapes to create an eerie, unwelcoming feeling, which is oftentimes punctuated by absurdist humour.” – BFI UK – – #Monosfilm directed by #AlejandroLandes – – #micalevi #micachu #soundtrack #soundtracks #filmscore #ivornovello #filmcomposer #academyawardnominee #jackie #filmmusik #understheskin #neonrated #lakeshorerecords #invadarecords #itunes #applemusic #spotify #monos #moños #monosfilm #colombia #vinyl #vinylsoundtrack #soundtracksonvinyl #vinylsoundtracks
