From the intro through the credits, the music featured in “The Art of FLIGHT” is now available online through http://artofflightmovie.com/store/en_us/. “The Art of FLIGHT” is a new breed of action sports film brought to life by Red Bull Media House, in association with Brain Farm Digital Cinema. Two years in the making, “The Art of FLIGHT” gives iconic snowboarder Travis Rice and friends the opportunity to redefine what is possible in the mountains. Viewers experience the highs, as new tricks are landed and new zones opened, alongside the lows, where avalanches, accidents and wrong-turns strike.
The soundtrack travels alongside the journey from the playful tree bonk and kicker segment shot in Wyoming set to the joyful sounds of The Naked and Famous’ hit song “Young Blood,” to the psychedelic riffs of the Black Angels fueling the Revelstoke spine segment. Sigur Rós, an Icelandic post-rock band, sets up dramatic avalanche footage in British Columbia, while the electronic driven “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff” (Nero Remix) from Deadmau5 play off of stunning footage shot in Alaska and Album Leaf keys in a soothing introduction to Jackson, WY.
The initial trailer (www.artofflightmovie.com) for “The Art of FLIGHT” featured a specially crafted score created by French musician Anthony Gonzalez, the man behind the electronic dream pop act, M83, and Curt Morgan, the Director of “The Art of FLIGHT.” Morgan and Gonzalez created a new band called The Three Corners of the Earth and placed the track on iTunes after the trailer came out prompting requests for the track to pour in. Morgan plays keys and drums and Gonzalez is on guitar. They recorded the piece for “The Art of FLIGHT” in Morgan’s Jackson, WY studio. Gonzales returns with M83 to set a dreamy stage throughout the film itself with “Intro,” “Outro” and “My Tears are Becoming a Sea ” from Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, which released in mid-October.
From pulse-pounding beats to melodic instrumentals, The Art of FLIGHT soundtrack crosses musical genres featuring a variety of music from still unknown acts to this year’s breakout performers.
