Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Lang, once a postminimalist enfant terrible, has solidified his standing as an American master.” (Russell Platt, The New Yorker) Indeed, in recent years David Lang has won the Pulitzer Prize and joined the faculty at Yale University.

Now Lang has scored (Untitled), a major independent feature about a composer’s life. He writes: “Most of the time film music is in the background, setting the mood or advancing the story in a supporting role. This project was different. Because the leading character is a composer, it is a film as much about musical development as it is about character development. There is the music that surrounds him, the music he composes and performs, the music that comes out of him as the complexity of
Read more his emotional life deepens and grows.” The soundtrack combines music composed especially for the film with excerpts compiled from his entire discography on the Bang on a Can-affiliated Cantaloupe Music label. Edited and produced with former So Percussion member, Lawson White, (Untitled)’s soundtrack serves as perfect introduction to Lang’s work, a midcareer retrospective of sorts for this composer’s composer.
