Pre-order here:

“Everything from the strong performances of the actors and gorgeous cinematography inspired me. I imagined that I was creating a sonic painting to accompany the visuals as well as giving a voice to the human characters and the farm itself which was a character on its own,” says Tamar-kali of the score.

The director – Dee Rees – had this to say: “Ancestors. Dark strings. Those were the only three words I gave brilliant composer Tamar-kali, and she reached deeply into her musical lexicon and brought forth an interpretation, a winding and complex elaboration on the theme that I could never have described. Tamar-kali just knew–and that’s why I wanted to work with her on the MUDBOUND score–Tamar knows how to find the voices. Violin arrangements that sound like wind moving through the trees. Viola triplets that sounds like hope fading. Contrabass rumbles that sound like the ground opening up, like mud grabbing our ankles, like angry ancient earth. Cello compositions that sound like time itself, marching onward, onward, onward…inevitable. My hope for this score is that it would sound like it bubbled up from the earth, that it was “in the trees”, that it would simultaneously evoke the indifference of nature and the resilience of humanity–and somehow from three small words and with great deliberation, discovery, and intellect–Tamar-kali did just that. Tamar-kali made the rocks cry out.”
