Mark Jenkin - Bait (Original Score) [LP]
This product is currently sold out.
Invada Records are thrilled to announce the release of Mark Jenkin’s drone heavy score to UK Film “Bait”!
This is the retail variant, pressed on turquoise vinyl. The LP comes housed in an extra thick deluxe spined sleeve with double sided heavyweight card printed insert, featuring stills from the film. There is also a digital download card included.
Mark Jenkin amazingly directed, edited and composed the score himself for the resolutely DIY yet hugely successful film. “Bait” has since received multiple British Independent Film Awards nominations, and has also just been nominated for two BAFTA awards, including ‘Outstanding British Film’ and ‘Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer’!
Jenkin: "I started playing around with some drone ideas as a distraction from the editing of the film; something to take my mind off the cutting," he says, "I was experimenting with delays and reverbs and decay and I began to feel that there was a nautical theme to the sounds that I was making.”
"An original drone was created very separate to the film but then I realised it might work as a score. From there I created a set of about 12 drones (eight of which are on the album) which were mostly variations on a theme and I began to place them in the edit to match the score. The drones work very well with the sounds of the sea, which is pretty much omni-present throughout the film and makes it easier to embed a drone without it being a big 'musical' statement."
