MAR­TIAL ARTIST

The eclec­tic in­flu­ences be­hind Win­tory’s Ab­solver sound­track

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE AUSTIN WINTORY -

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.
