Catch the first taste of Ed Scolding's powerful score for the psychological thriller Mile End.
The film premieres on Saturday 3rd October at Raindance Festival, London, and is nominated for Best UK Feature: "the actors’ performance is matched by the score, which deftly conveys all that remains unspoken and sets the perfect mood for this twisted tale.”
Speaking about the score, composer Ed said:
"I worked really closely with Graham [director & writer] to create music that really told the story of the characters and the action. He originally came to me because he liked my concert music, which made me feel I could really push the boat out and explore complex music, before refining everything to work with the pictures.
"It’s a powerful film with a lot of depth - there’s a lot going on psychologically, particularly with the main character Paul. For example there are some running sequences where there’s lots going on inside Paul’s head - there’s a background sense of him having always felt like an outsider, never quite fitting in, but he’s starting to move beyond that, exploring something new, finding calm and healing.
"That kind of situation means there’s space for music to be in the foreground, and also a clear direction for what they music needs to say."
The full soundtrack album will be released in 2016.
