Album Review

South African-born composer Mark Kilian, who moved to the U.S. to do graduate work in film and TV scoring at USC, has built up a reputation for being able to mix traditional movie soundtrack music with elements of world music, as he did in his music for Rendition. In director Santosh Sivan's Before the Rains, set in India in the 1930s, he employs elements of traditional Indian music, using, for instance, percussionist Sivamani, along with orchestral scoring. A thoughtful drama presented by Merchant Ivory, the film requires subtle background music to tell its story about the interactions between the British and the Indians during the period of colonialism, and Kilian's music, employing wordless vocals and sometimes ambient sounds, provides what is needed.

Customer Reviews

A very beautiful surprise!

I'm familiar with the composer's name but I haven't heard this score before. It's stunning: really beautiful and atmospheric and haunting, and it leaves me wanting even more. If you just want a taste of it, grab the last 2 cues. But all 19 cues for only $9.99 is quite the bargain, so just go full-album! What I like: perfect instrumentation, haunting melodies, and a real sense of atmosphere that doesn't feel contrived or generic. Really nice work.

Good Stuff

Wow, this is some really good stuff, I really like the hole feel he is abel to maintane throught the hole Score. This is the kind of stuff ii can just sitback and relax to and really be brought back to the film.
