SAAH 060 CD
***NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL!!! Comprised of pieces from the band's original score for F.W. Murnau's 1927 silent masterpiece Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, MY EDUCATION has discovered the perfect forum for which to flex their compositional muscles, achieving ever-transcendent musical heights in the process. This original score was perfected over the last two years through live scoring to the film, performed at sold out shows throughout the USA. Just as the music provides new context to the film as a live accompaniment, Sunrise flashes brightly from the speakers, sparking vivid and lush imagery for the listener. Finding parallels to the timeless soundtracks-as-albums Popol Vuh composed for a number of Werner Herzog's films—music with such visual distinction that it went on to become both synonymous with the screen and the band's legacy—Sunrise leaps out of the speakers and onto celluloid with confident grace, distinguishing itself as My Education's most diverse and mature release yet. No export to Benelux.
