RRP: £13.99

MovieScore Media bring us Flemming Nordkrog's original score for Wildwitch. Based on the popular book series by Lene Kaaberbøl, the movie tells the story of 12-year-old Clara who lives like any other girl until one day a mysterious black cat scratches her. Clara soon discovers that she can communicate with the cat and that she belongs to a family of Wildwitches with a strong connection to nature and animals. Together with her mentor aunt Isa and her friends, Kahla and Oscar, Clara must face her destiny and embark on a dangerous journey in order to save herself and the Wildworld from the ancient evil witch, Bravita Bloodyoung...

Flemming Nordkrog delivers a magical score for Wildwitch. These 22 tracks (54 min, 03 sec) are engaging and hypnotic. There's an eerie, gothic sound in segments of 'Entering the Wild World', as well as an enchanting wonder in 'Witch Child, Come With Me'.

This is an album that is perfect to relax to. You can put it on in the background and let it wash over you, or you can turn it up loud and give it your undivided attention - it works both ways.

On his score, Nordkrog said: "I wanted to create a music that reflected the cold and misty nature present in the film, but also the spiritual evolution of Clara, our 12-year old main character. The music had to be fragile, mysterious and very organic. I wrote most of the musical themes and textures before the shooting of the film, working solely on paper and piano before I went on doing some very free-floating recordings of my ideas, with different groups of musicians. First the female voice, representing Clara, then a duo of cello and bass, a duo of alto flute and clarinet and a 30 piece string orchestra. The recorded material became the musical DNA of the film and my musical building blocks throughout my work on the film."

It's an intricate and incredible soundtrack that doesn't waste a note. There's no filler material to pad out the length. From start to finish this is a lovingly crafted work of art.
