John Medeski and Daniel Lopatin Element Soundtrack Album for Nathan Fielder’s The Curse

John Medeski has introduced The Curse (Music From the Showtime Unique Sequence), which is out November 17 by way of Milan Information. The 52-song soundtrack to the brand new present from Benny Safdie and Nathan Fielder, which co-stars Fielder and Emma Stone, was govt produced by common Safdie collaborator Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Level By no means). The brand new launch options the opening observe and lead single “Pretend Tears.” Give it a pay attention beneath.

Lopatin was requested by Safdie to search out somebody to attain the present who may do it within the spirit of Alice Coltrane’s Turiya Sings. “There was a really quick listing of composers I felt had been akin, or may keep it up some stage, Alice’s ability and soulfulness with them into their very own rating,” Lopatin mentioned in a press release. “John was certainly one of them. John breathes presence into music. His means to improvise and converse via his instrument, and particularly the organ—is a part of his greatness. His transcendent understanding of spacious, open music, mixed with a virtuosic assault of the keyboard within the fields of jazz and blues, to not point out his twisted humorousness, felt precisely proper for the collection.”

John Medeski added:

There was this concept that the music of Alice’s—this religious music—has a high quality that’s neither pleased nor unhappy. It’s each. It’s deep, contemplative music. As a substitute of the music defining what’s occurring, it’s opening up potentialities. I really like that as a result of that is what music is for me. It’s a language that expresses one thing between thought and emotion that solely music can specific. The music is nearly like one other dimension or one other perspective. Lots of movies are designed to make you’re feeling one thing about what is going on on within the scene, to symbolize the scene, to create the emotional influence of the scene. And Nathan and Benny needed the collection to be very dialogue pushed and story pushed, and to have the music really be like one other observer offering a perspective. They didn’t need any music to be too apparent. Typically the music is deceptive to what’s happening within the scene even, and I beloved that. The music has this different dimension that gives environment. It isn’t simply programmatic, it’s one other character.
