Woman of Tokyo - a new score
13 Jun 2012


BFI have released my new soundtrack to Ozu's mesmerising and powerful silent film 'Woman of Tokyo' (1933). Specially recorded by Michael Atkinson (cello) and Adam Bushell (percussion). The music accompanies the film's structure which ranges from happiness to contempt and despair. The final scenes include extraordinary tensions; here I used cello chords, slow gong beats, and the sounds of clocks to emulate Ozu's depiction of a  moment of abandonment. I wrote a short commentary for the accompanying booklet, which also includes essays by Tony Rayns, Anthony Nield, Nick Wrigley and others.
