Mica Levi has detailed her score for the brand new film Monos. Her soundtrack is out digitally on August 30 (by way of Invada/Lakeshore). Listen to Levi’s “Monos” under.

Monos, directed by Alejandro Landes, hits theaters September 13 (by way of NEON). The film follows a bunch of younger troopers and rebels who hold watch over an American hostage. Eventually, an ambush drives them into the jungle the place “order descends into chaos,” and “the strong begin to prey on the weak,” in response to a synopsis.

Mica Levi mentioned in an announcement:

I actually like all of the characters—the Jungle, the mountains and the
waves. In the rating, I didn’t use a variety of stuff partly I believe
as a result of they didn’t have a variety of stuff. Maybe the rating is a bit like
the garments—a mixture of supplies and sizes, outdated garments new garments, the
similar garments most days.

I believe the environmental sound carries the richness and complexity of
the scenario sound-wise. The movie crew went to locations nobody has ever
filmed or recorded sound in. Lena Esequenzis recreated these wild and
costly environments and with the director Alejandro Landes and
music supervisor Bridget Samuels and ultimately engineer Leandro de
Loredo, all of us labored to get a stability of sound and music to image.

I hope you all benefit from the movie as a lot as I did.

Alejandro Landes added:

Mica related with and understood the spirit of the movie: the faces,
the colours, the extremeness of the surroundings, the mash of costumes,
the absence of a selected time, place or date. She’s classically
educated however will be equally as impressed by pop or heavy steel; she will be able to
combine synthesizer-driven music with a quartet. All this brings a really
specific sensibility, a mixing of devices, that made for a
distinct, emotional and atemporal sound.
