Children of Nature

Children of Nature - Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson

Just got the new e-mail update from those lovely folks at Tonevendor, and as always, it’s full to the brim of musical delights. So many, in fact, that I can feel my bank account trembling in fear at the thought of how much I want to spend. However, this update is extra special. Whilst perusing the list, I happened across an entry for Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson’s Children of Nature soundtrack.

IIRC, the disc has been out of print for awhile, so it’s nice to know it’s available once again. To put it mildly, this soundtrack is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard, full of mournful string arrangements and haunting electronics, and it’s well worth the $14.99 they’re asking. If you’re a fan of Arvo Part, Henryk Gorecki, or any of the classic 4AD artists (esp. This Mortal Coil), or if you’re just in the mood for some very lovely and evocative music, this disc is right up your alley (read my review).

Now, if someone would just get around to releasing the movie on DVD. I’ve got a copy on VHS and unfortunately, I know it won’t last forever.
