'Sleeping Lions' is the third in a series of soundtrack releases by Alexandra Benedict & Tris Taylor.
Tracks from the first were recently aired on BBC Radio 3's "Late Junction."
'Sleeping Lions' is a tragic short film about three minutes on Bexhill seafront, shot in one take on Super-8.
Director Oliver Crowther sent composers Alexandra Benedict and Tris Taylor a series of reference points from Tarkovsky and classic French cinema, briefing them to create a soundtrack including both foley and music.
The film premiered at London's Curzon Renoir as part of the Straight 8 Festival.
We then commissioned remixes from Neotropic (Ninja Tune/R&S) – who created a stunning choral remake – and Benbo (Cooking Vinyl/BBE), who added a house music element to make it the soundtrack to a melancholy Balearic pool party.
Finally, we commissioned Oliver Crowther to paint our cover image, and sent the package to Bob Macciochi at Subvert Central for mastering.
