Wild Side - Original Score

Wednesday 30 November 2016
Wild Side

Tomorrow will see the premiere in London of Wild Side (dir. Heikki Simppula), a coming-of-age film set and filmed in Finland for which David wrote the original score earlier this year.

The film deals with a friendship that is tested by the difficulties of growing up and moving apart, set against a backdrop of a magical, troll-inhabited forest, and the childish wonder and imagination that surrounds it.

The musical score was composed in October 2016 and utilises a full symphonic orchestra to create a soundtrack that underpins both the close friendship between the main characters and the mysterious, enchanted, and sometimes threatening nature of their surroundings.
