Message from Ben Frost:
I first had the opportunity to work with Marc Silver a few years ago when he invited me to compose music for a film he made inspired by the swarming phenomenon of birds - the images in that film were overwhelmingly powerful and yet - given the current prevalence of technology and extraneous manipulation of the medium of film that is readily available to every film maker today - they were by contrast unbelievably raw and untouched - a series of incredible moments captured and sewn together, without agenda and without interference.
Marc Silver doesn't construct drama - he creates space for it to occur and similarly that is what this score is about; a space, a series of spaces within a space in fact.
You, the public, don't need my music to heighten the inherent tragedy and drama of the Invisibles, and you don't need my music to tell you this situation needs your attention, because through this film, the people, their stories and the spaces that surround them speak every word that needs to be said.
If there is one thing I want more than anything for you to walk away with from this music, it was and is the overwhelming sense of quiet strength, and of hope.
