The eclectic influences behind Wintory’s Absolver soundtrack
We ask Wintory if he can give us some hints on what to expect from his Absolver score. Ten minutes later he’s still talking, covering everything from musical clichés in martial-arts movies to the Darwinian model of evolutionary biology. Director Pierre Tarno has, he says, let him be experimental with the score, which means you’ll hear banjos played with a Coke bottle cap, but in keeping with the theme of respectful competition there will be “an undercurrent of compassion. That’s probably the best I can offer given the adage that talking about music is like dancing about architecture,” he smiles.
