It’s nearly time for the 44th annual Goteborg Film Festival. We take a look at the themes, films and documentaries premiering there this year.
NEW MUSIC: FROM 50s BE-BOP TO ELECTRO POP
- 11 Jan
Natural Pathways - Paul Mottram
Paul Mottram has orchestrated on films, and now composes tracks which have been used on commercials and The Great British Bake Off, QI and Downton Abbey.
Natural Pathways brings together flowing piano and warm, pastoral strings with swirling rhythms and harp to create a bright, mercurial, magical air.
Night Journeys - Paul Ressel & Theo Travis
Paul Ressel has worked with global brands (MTV, Discovery Channel, Ford) and artists including Lana Del Rey and Maxi Jazz (Faithless). Acclaimed ambient composer and musician Theo Travis has worked with Robert Fripp and Roger Eno.
On Night Journeys, they’ve created night time moods with atmospheric synths and textured layers, treated piano, slow bass and eerie electric guitar.
Classic Acoustic Jazz - Tim Garland
Grammy award-winning saxophonist, composer and bandleader Tim Garland merges a variety of classic acoustic jazz styles, with upbeat jumping 50s bebop joining swinging jazz and Latin-influenced 60s jazz with classic quintet line up, horns, piano, trumpet solos and bass groove.
Transmutations - Noah Sorota
Noah has worked as an arranger, programmer and soloist on numerous Hans Zimmer movie scores, and also writes for TV.
Transmutations builds mystery and atmosphere with piano, menacing synths, ambient textures, celestial bells, evolving electronic patterns and bass pulses, from calm and gentle to uplifting.
Bloom - Dan Leary & Gigi
Paul (aka Dan) Leary has produced and created pop songs for top artists across the UK, US, Sweden and Asia and brands, including IKEA. Artist and songwriter Georgina ‘Gigi’ has previously worked with Grammy nominated producers and is a regular on the festival circuit, including Reading and Leeds.
Together, their uplifting electro pop has Gigi’s anthemic vocals, backed by melodic guitars, analogue synths and dance floor ready beats.
Conviction - Luke Richards
Luke Richards creates pulse-pounding scores for blockbuster movies and video games. Here, pitch-bending synths with distorted sound design, deep piano and eerie arpeggios, together with sinister, pulsating bass build tense electronic atmospheres for maximum drama.
New Music to start your year: emotional and uplifting tracks, featuring guitar, indie pop and orchestral journeys. Plus dreamy electronica, hip hop and Latin American styles.
