The Year Zero 2 The Trek Good News For that, I recommend see "The Killing Fileds" picture before hear the album, because if you make The Year Zero - Mike Oldfield - The Killing Fields (Original Film Soundtrack)Point Vicente - Calexico - Spoke will discover that this album illustrates perfectly the wonderful story of the film.
Because I think that Oldfield made a great work as Film-Score writer! In my opinion he mixed the dark synthethised parts with the more orchestral and luminous ones with a great success, and without losing his identity But I think that this music can be also enjoyed by every prog fan who likes the most darker and experimental side of instrumental symphonic music For six months Oldfield dedicated his time to working on the music, only to find that on returning from a subsequent tour that the film's director was not satisfied with what Oldfield had submitted.
Oldfield therefore asked for additional funding to allow him to commission an orchestra and choir. This was agreed to, Oldfield brought in his long time friend David Bedford to assist, and they spent a further three months together on the project. Once this The Year Zero - Mike Oldfield - The Killing Fields (Original Film Soundtrack) had been completed, the director then decided to make further changes to the film, which meant Oldfield had to make more changes to what he thought would be his final efforts.
Clearly these experiences did not endear Oldfield to working on film soundtracks, and he has avoided them ever since. While we here are interested in such albums from a purely musical perspective, a word about the film will help to put the music in context. After the skirmish has ended, Pran discovers that Phat's son has American money and a map leading to safety. When Phat tries to stop the younger Khmer Rouge officers from killing II Andante Con Moto - Radu Lupu, Beethoven* - The Piano Concertos • 3 Sonatas • 2 Rondos of his comrades, he is ignominiously shot.
In the confusion, Pran escapes with four other prisoners and they begin a long trek through the jungle with Phat's young son. The group later splits and three of them head in a different direction; Pran continues following the map with the fourth man. However, Pran's companion activates a hidden land mine while holding the boy. As Pran pleads with the man to give him the boy, the mine goes off, killing the pair.
Pran mourns for a time and continues on. The scene shifts to Schanberg calling Pran's family with the news that Pran is alive and safe. Soon after, Schanberg travels to the Red Cross camp and is reunited with Pran. He asks Pran to forgive him; Pran answers, with a smile, "Nothing to forgive, Sydney", as the two embrace.
David Puttnam asked to see me, which in those days was a bit like being invited out to Hollywood. He gave me Bruce Robinson's script, which was The Year Zero - Mike Oldfield - The Killing Fields (Original Film Soundtrack)but it was so full of passion and energy I couldn't put it down. I'd heard about Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge, but didn't know much until I read it.
I wrote to David saying that whoever made the film would have to be careful because it wasn't just a war story: it was about human connection, how friendships are born and what they do to us. I didn't hear from him for six months, then we bumped into one another and he said he'd interviewed most of the directors in the world — including some very big names who would make the studios happy — but no one had really understood it.
In the same interview actor Julian Sands said:. Roland's audition process was extraordinary. I was 24 and I've never come across anything as rigorous since. He The Year Zero - Mike Oldfield - The Killing Fields (Original Film Soundtrack) looking to put together a troupe of actors without much film experience, because he wanted the freshness of everything to resonate with us.
