Third in a series of soundtrack releases by Alexandra Benedict & Tris Taylor, ‘Sleeping Lions’ was composed without reference to picture. Instead, director Oliver Crowther briefed Benedict & Taylor with a list of estimated timings, and references to Tarkovsky and classic French cinema.
The score uses piano, violin, Wurlitzer, balloon bumps, celeste and music box, along with a soundscape including wind, dog barks and a bicycle.
The film has remained unseen since its premiere at the Curzon Renoir in 2010. For this release, we have commissioned remixes by Neotropic and Benbo, and cover art by Crowther.
