Francis Lee‘s feature film Ammonite, scored by Dustin O’Halloran and Volker Bertelmann (aka Hauschka), is being screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and is eligible for the people’s Choice Award.

The film stars the talented Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan, and is a love story set in the 19th century on the windswept Lyme Regis coastline.

It has received rave reviews, with the Telegraph calling it “one of the finest films of the year”, and the Guardian describing the fossil-hunting biopic as “a love story that is also a fascinating artefact: quixotic, romantic, erotic”.

Variety predicts that “the talented composing duo of Dustin O’Halloran and Volker Bertelmann, who found attention in 2016 for ‘Lion’ from the Academy, is firmly in the conversation for another nomination for the subtle, more refined composition.”

 

Dustin O’Halloran and Hauschka have joined forces again, this time to score The Old Guard.

The Old Guard was directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, and stars Charlize Theron and Chiwetel Ejiofor. It is an adaptation of Greg Rucka and Leonardo Fernandez’ graphic novels, and tells the story of a covert team of immortal mercenaries who must fight to keep their identity a secret, just as an unexpected new member is discovered.

The Old Guard will premiere on July 10th on Netflix.

Dustin O’Halloran and Adam Wiltzie have come together again as A Winged Victory for the Sullen to tour their new album ‘The Undivided Five’.

“One of the most beautiful records I’ve heard this year.” –NPR (Albums of the Week)

“The arrangements consist of calm, patient pianos, gently swelling strings, and deftly integrated modular synthesizers, which help the pieces glow and vibrate. It’s a vast, involved recording.” –All Music

“Exquisite.” –Guardian (Contemporary Albums of the Month)

“Huge, bold & cinematic affair.” –Resident (Album of the Week)

“They make the most pitch-perfect ambient music imaginable, chock full of sweeping strings that will pull at your heartstrings so hard that they may be ripped off in one fell swoop.” –Paste
