This is a strange one. Running only 20 minutes long, this film must not have much music during its running time. But what we do have are long, slow, steady notes, drawn out. Most of the tracks are like this. No real melody or anything, but these single notes played over and over again. Some of the tracks are slightly different from one another, but very close to the same.
According to the composer Herriott, the director “wanted to use instruments that existed during the time period of the narrative, so that meant no electronic sounds.” I have to say that is a cool idea, but it just seems like they didn’t do much with that idea. The last track, a song called Four Doomed Men Ride Out, doesn’t seem to fit the feel of the rest of the soundtrack at all, and really is a head-scratcher.
For only being 20 minutes long, it is a shame that we didn’t get more of a developed audio landscape here.
