2005 CD release.
Zorn’s latest soundtrack is scored for percussion and electronics, and features two masterful musicians who have been working with him consistently since 1981: Cyro Baptista and Ikue Mori. The subject of the film is quite remarkable—men who work life-threatening jobs—and as the settings jump from Java to China, Nigeria to the Ukraine, so does the music. Steaming sulphur mines, the bloodbaths of a brutal slaughterhouse…these are just a few of the scenes that are evoked in this unique score that blends dynamic rhythms with ambient soundscapes.
