The brief was to create two very different options: a melodramatic orchestral arrangement in the style of Georges Delerue’s Theme de Camille from Le Mepris and a contemporary soundtrack; the latter made the final cut. 60s Italian influences at the beginning, relevant New York favourites Laurie Anderson (O Superman) and Philip Glass (Koyaanisqatsi) later on. Tight, trappy, double-time hi-hats over the buildings at night keep things modern, blending into the following scene through the telephone ring with live bass guitar recording to keep it warm and human.
