The Crescent (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

by Seth A Smith

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    ‘The Crescent’ is the latest film from renowned film maker and musician Seth Smith (Dog Day, The Burdocks, Lowlife film) and Darcy Spidle (Lowlife, Chik White, Obey Convention). Set and filmed in Halifax, The Crescent is a transcendent look at loss, grief and single parenting, told through the entrancing art of paper-marbling and the eyes of a two-year-old. It tells the story of Beth and her toddler son, Lowen, as they retreat to the solitude of a remote seaside cottage after a death in the family. As the two attempt to rebuild their lives, the strange residents of Crescent Beach make their presence known. Seth has this to say about the soundtrack, which recently captured the ‘Best Soundtrack’ award at the 2017 Atlantic International Film Festival :
    "I wanted a gothic tone. It's a bit of a reflection of what I had been listening to over that time. Mostly a lot of thrift store classical, church organ records and 70s space disco. I made virtual instruments by building sample libraries from voice recordings and nonlinear sounds. I was looking for something I hadn't heard before. We also put together a small choir during shooting too where we captured some pretty intense improvisational chants."
    This album will be available in a limited pressing of 300 copies, on marbled vinyl with artwork by Yorodeo.
