Erik K Skodvin & Rauelsson: A Score For Darling LP


A Score for Darling is both the soundtrack for the Danish film Darling (2017) as well as a collection of outtakes from it. Raúl Pastor Medall (Rauelsson) and Erik K Skodvin (Svarte Greiner and half of Deaf Center) were paired together to work on the accompanying music after the director, Birgitte Stærmose wanted to try a new direction. Both together and individually they have created a highly affecting collection of pieces to a film that is not afraid of pushing the emotional content to the max, centered around the story of a dancer. This is also the first time either of them have made a full-length soundtrack, making it their debut on the big screen. The music and instrumentation heard on the album is brimming with dynamics and diversity, featuring violin by Christoph Berg, cello by Anne Müller as well as a mass of other sounds like church organs, synths, guitar amp violation, electro-acoustic sounds, piano, and more, all layered together into 15 beautiful and devastating fragments of mood. The final piece of the album "Breathe" -- featuring Otto A Totland on piano and Katinka Fogh Vindelev (We Like We) on voice -- can be seen as their own lamenting end title to a longer period of work with this album, finally finished. Includes printed inner sleeve; Edition of 500.
