New Mind Lab Music tracks....inspired by Film

Take a listen to 4 aural snapshots inspired by 4 film directors and their work. Each piece was not composed for any particular scene but rather a viewpoint or persepctive from the each film in total. Our creation of new music (particularly for film), is borne not only from the visual (blessed are good cinematographers), but also the story, vision, emotion, and origin. As always, MLM is available for hire and would like to hear about your project. Drop us a line! Enjoy!
AKIRA KUROSAWA--Director
The Men Who Tread on the Tiger's Tail---1960
Inspired the MIND LAB MUSIC composition…..KABUKI
“The greatest of Akira Kurosawa's wartime films tells the story of a nobleman's attempt to escape death at the hands of his jealous brother. Based on a celebrated Kabuki play, this dramatic story is drawn from a real-life power struggle in feudal Japan. Kurosawa added his own extraordinary touches, including creating a role for the talented comic Kenichi Enomoto.”
DANI KOUYATE--Director
Keita! L'héritage Du Grio---1996
Inspired the MIND LAB MUSIC composition…..KALUNDA
“Keita creates a unique world where the West Africa of the 13th Century Sundjata Epic and the West Africa of today co-exist and interpenetrate. Director Dani Kouyate’s frames his dramatization of the epic within the story of Mabo Keïta, contemporary boy from Burkina Faso, learning the history of his family.”
JAMES IVORY--Director
Room With A View---1985
Inspired the MIND LAB MUSIC composition…..TUSCAN MOON
“A Room with a View, based on the E. M. Forster novel, a story about Lucy Honeychurch and chaperone Charlotte Bartlett who find themselves in Florence with rooms without views, fellow guests Mr Emerson and son George step in to remedy the situation. Meeting the Emersons could change Lucy's life forever but, once back in England, how will her experiences in Tuscany affect her marriage plans?” Written by Bridget Jones
STANLEY KUBRICK--Director
2001: A Space Odyssey--1968
Inspired the MIND LAB MUSIC composition…..IDK-3000
“2001: A Space Odyssey is a 1968 science-fiction "epic film", both for its length and scope, and for its affinity with classical epics. Screenplay was co-written by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, dealing with the elements of human evolution, technology, artificial intelligence, and extraterrestrial life. It is notable for its scientific accuracy, pioneering special effects, ambiguous imagery that is open-ended to a point approaching surrealism, sound in place of traditional narrative techniques, and minimal use of dialogue.”
