Jennifer Lilly’s editing is perhaps most crucial to making the increasingly complex narrative succeed, while the score by Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans supplies an eerie undercurrent to the action, growing richer as the story unfolds. –Variety

The One I Love (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack): iTunes
The One I Love (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is available now from Lakeshore Records. The score by Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans (PBS’ The Amish, Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal) follows the genre-bending film movie about a couple, Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss), who go on a weekend retreat to save their marriage. The duo have scored for numerous Sundance and Cannes Film Festival-winning movies. “We were trying to do everything quite nontraditionally but full of character so that it would have a stark approach,” explained Bensi. “We like to do that for a lot of scores where the music will really be almost like one of the characters in the movie, so that’s what we made sure happened with this score right away.” The One I Love CD will be available on November 11.
About the composers:
Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans, recently placed amongst On The Rise 2014: 12 Film Composers To Watch, are multi-instrumentalists and classically trained musicians. Bensi is an internationally raised cellist and composer, while the mostly self-taught Jurriaans (“I had a few classical guitarlessons”) dropped out of the Rhode Island School of Design and, after playing with a few pick-up bands and working some graphic construction jobs, reconnected with high school friend Bensi, with whom he formed the acclaimed rock band Priestbird. The band spent about six years recording (they have released five albums) and touring, evolving what can only be described as the ‘dramatic, cinematic’ blend of music to which both Bensi and Jurriaans are naturally attracted.
