On the heels of the NEON release of PIG, the New York Times Critic’s Pick film now playing in theaters, Lakeshore Records‘ Alon Levitan caught up with co-composers Alexis Grapsas (Monday, BBC’s “Trigonometry” Series) and Philip Klein (Wish Dragon, The Last Full Measure). The film’s score received love from critics and playlist editors alike, taking top slots on Apple Music and Spotify playlists. Find out how the composers cooked up the tasteful music to the Nicolas Cage movie.
“Alexis Grapsas and Philip Klein’s sparse, folk-infused score aids the innate mournfulness of Sarnoski’s camera: even in its occasional lighter moments, Pig is suffused with the smoky air of tragedy.” – Consequence
Lakeshore Records has released Alexis Grapsas and Philip Klein’s score to New York Times Critic’s Pick film Pig! A Top 10 film, the affecting 13-track album is available now globally on all major music services! View the album tracklist, purchase links, and more below.
The score reflects the mood of the lead character played by Nicolas Cage with the simple folk-like colors of the raw baritone violin and acoustic guitars creating a richly mournful tone while more modern, aggressive electric guitars, distorted colors and drums provide a strikingly ominous, propulsive backdrop to his more intense moments.
