Waves of high energy music fused with intermittent stretches of silence punctuated by mournful wails and muffled battle cries. I stood and imagined distant tunnels and the tiny, helpless creatures lost to them. – Melanie Cooper, Fine Print Magazine
Tom Schutzinger’s powerful score to RED is reviewed in Fine Print Magazine with the electrifying film that is described as a tale of raw, feminine power. It’s Cate Blanchett like you’ve never seen her before. Those of us in the States are a bit jealous of all those who were able to catch the short film while it screened at the Art Gallery of South Australia. We hope the film makes its way to the states soon!
And while Barton and team supplied fabulous visuals Red also has something of an aural assault thanks to the aggressive score by Tom Schutzinger. – Todd Brown, Screen Anarchy
As noted by Screen Anarchy, two-time Academy Award® Winner Cate Blanchett has her pick of films these days, so the rational reason why she would choose to star in the Del Kathryn Barton short film, RED, is that it’s that good. Listen to the debut track, “Bed,” from the forthcoming RED (Original Short Film Soundtrack) now at Screen Anarchy, featuring score by former Decoder Ring bandmate, Tom Schutzinger.
The jarring track is just a taste of what you might hope to enjoy from the film, now screening through April 30 at the Art Gallery of South Australia (get info.).
Bed is a brilliant and intense composition off the film’s score, a lively synth track which amiably matches the short movie’s darkness and fervency – Destroy/Exist
