The latest ravishing score by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis is for director David Olehoffen's 'Loin Des Hommes (Far From Men)', Adapted from a short story by Albert Camus.

With its mesmeric drones, pointillist piano jabs, weeping strings & nerve-jangling electronics, this is one of the duo's most emotive & experimental soundtracks to date, sounding both achingly intimate & cosmically vast. Nick Cave & Warren Ellis create film & theatre scores that are elegantly minimal, hauntingly beautiful & instantly recognisable as theirs alone. Full of light & shade, creeping dread & inconsolable yearning, these heavily instrumental sound paintings inject aching humanity into ghostly frontier towns, parched desert vistas & post-apocalyptic war zones. Most are built around the duos intertwined piano & violin melodies, with sporadic use of guitar, flute, mandolin, celeste, percussion & other elements.
