ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
American filmmaker Hal Hartley has always made original music for his films. In the early years they were mostly guitar based, but as the years passed a larger ensemble gradually emerged. The music for Fay Grim is based on themes first created for the film Henry Fool (1998). Fay Grim is something of a sequel as well as a satire on contemporary international relations. So, some of the fun of this soundtrack is in hearing the earlier band-sized themes twisted and turned towards the color and gravitas of a windswept romantic espionage movie. A limited edition, only 2000 copies of this disc have been printed.

Fay Grim Original Soundtrack
As a longtime Hal Hartley fan, I've found that just one of the many pleasures that make up the great experience of viewing his films happens to be the wonder of hearing his film score work.

Although TRUST was the first Hartley film I ever saw, it was his synth-and-choral work in AMATEUR that made me become a Hartley score superfan, giving me the need to pick up every Hartley score I can get my hands on. And FAY GRIM easily lives up to the rest of his stellar work. Playing occasionally with pre-existing themes from HENRY FOOL, the GRIM score works on its own merits and on its own level -- complimenting the film beautifully and striking out territory of its own.

Now, if it's possible for CD Baby to release the Hal Hartley score to a film called MILK AND HONEY (2003) -- as far as I know, this is the only Hartley score to a film he didn't actually write or direct) -- I'd go from a very happy fan to an ecstatic one.
