Composer Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie, who’s one half of the marvellous ambient project Stars Of The Lid, also has many great film scores to his name. His latest one accompanies Salero, a feature documentary directed by Mike Plunkett and set in Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni. Speaking about the film soundtrack, Wiltzie had this to say:
“I have always said that composing music is infinitely easier when you have beautiful images to be inspired by. It was a pleasure to write a score over this captivating place of endless, glimmering salt before its impending demise. I was fascinated by this mythical space and its ability to define the identities of the people who live in its vicinity, where this vast salt flat itself would be a central character”
Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie’s Salero OST will see the light of day on November 11th via Erased Tapes but we can already hear a first taste from it with the utterly beautiful “Lithium, The New Era”.
