When a living legend like Wim Wenders ("Paris, Texas"; "The Million Dollar Hotel"; "Buenavista Social Club") decides to appear as a future version of himself in a movie, there must be something outstanding about it. The idea of the film is brilliant: We see our time through the eyes of our grandchildren, many years ahead. By the means of a fable, disguised as a documentary from the future, we understand that the era we criticize so much will actually be seen as the good old days. A true eye-opener.
Gary Marlowe began playing piano at four, turned into a synthesizer prodigy and much respected "synth god", shared the stage with Iggy Pop and The Ramones, became a No.1 hit songwriter, and Gold Record winning producer. He is an official Steinway Artist, and has won numerous international awards for his film scores, which combine synthesizers, piano, electronica and orchestra to create unexpected, beautifully human sound worlds.
To maximize the acoustic quality, Marlowe called in one of his favorite mixing engineers, to finalize the score together. Hans-Martin "HM" Buff, formerly personal engineer of Prince, joined the composer again, to carefully mix all those wonderful, delicate or thundering sounds into an exciting musical landscape. A landscape of a fragile future, which is still in our hands to define.
"A science fiction film about extinction? To me, this is one of the most pressing topics of our time, and it is dangerously late to be addressed. Making and watching this movie is better than signing a hundred petitions." (Gary Marlowe)
