Mogwai are the rare band with a body of soundtrack work that's just as vital as their own albums. With Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, Les Revenants, and Atomic, they redefined their music while emphasizing the gifts for mood-making that made them soundtrack-worthy in the first place. Mogwai reach another milestone with KIN: the band's first music for a feature film -- a sci-fi thriller about a pair of brothers who find a mysterious weapon -- delivers a streamlined version of their sound that's ready for its close-up. Sometimes, this focus feels a bit boilerplate; stark, mournful, yet violent tracks such as "Miscreants," "Guns Down," and "KIN" are as familiar as they are effective. At other times, KIN distills Mogwai's sound in the best possible ways. As it builds from an echoing piano melody to pummeling rhythms, "Flee" brings nuance, as well as plenty of tension, to the music for a chase scene. The final track, "We're Not Done," might be a little too upbeat compared to what came before, yet its chiming indie rock -- which recalls the much-loved "Teenage Exorcists" from Music Industry 3. Fitness Industry 1. -- is a standout. The same can be said of "Donuts," which is one of the finest examples of Mogwai's soaring beauty in the late 2010s. Even when KIN feels predictable, it still makes an impact. "Scrap" subtly nods to the film's genre with its reverberating synth arpeggios, while the somber majesty of "Eli's Theme" explains why the band was hired for this job. Where Mogwai's other scores pushed their boundaries, KIN simply restates their strengths -- which, fortunately, are as formidable as ever.

Once upon a time... there was Ennio Morricone

For almost sixty years, Ennio Morricone had been completely devoted to writing film music. The man with 500 film scores passed away at the age of 91, on July 6, 2020. But where did the story start? We take a look at the origins of a composer who became a major cultural phenomenon in the mid-1960s, in particular thanks to the films of Sergio Leone.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

John Barry, The Genius Jack of All Trades

Composing for the screen demands a taste and a skill for all styles: from disco for a nightclub scene, to a madrigal for a period drama, the cinema musician has to be ready for anything. And John Barry (1933 - 2011) was surely one of the greatest soundtrack composers, and one who was able to immerse himself fully into all genres of music and film.
