‘The MOMENT’ Original Live score Soundtrack on vinyl and digital
The album, titled “The MOMENT Original Live Score,” presents two versions of the score performed by musicians Hallvardur Asgeirsson and Gary Naylor. Recorded during a special live screening at the Clarion Cinema in Iowa on June 26, 2021, this album showcases the virtuosity of the musicians as they improvise and respond to the ever-changing form of the film.
When performing the score of “The MOMENT,” the musicians are faced with the challenge of improvisation, as they are unaware of the exact form the film will take. This requires them to rely on a “conductor” who guides them through the narrative, allowing them to riff off each other’s performances and create a harmonious musical journey. The album’s double-sided format aims to highlight the musicians’ exceptional skills and their ability to be inspired together ‘in the moment.’
