In the spirit of Brad Barr, Explosions in the Sky, Helios, and other pop-instrumentalists, the Beyond The Divide Film Soundtrack album is a delightful listen either under intense headphones scrutiny or as background textures drifting throughout the day. But I would be all the more grateful if you would have a listen and decide for yourself.
The album is packaged in a full-color matte-finish eco-wallet, incorporating photography from the film and lyrics. The design elements can be seen below. Full artwork will be added once the albums arrive from the manufacturer.
Beyond The Divide is a documentary film directed and produced by Jan Selby. Chris Koza composed the original score for the film, which was edited by Bill Kersey. The film premiered at DocUtah and is continuing to elicit powerful emotional responses from viewers all over the world.
The music begins with simple meditative guitar melodies and rhythms and slowly blossoms through a hybrid of woodsy and synthetic textures.
The title track on the album is the only song with vocals, where Koza channels his best mellow-mountaintop voice to carefully drift among the crags and crevices of a complicated and revealing facade. credits released 11 November 2014
