Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch will release a four-track digital EP later this month, her first new release since last year’s ‘Epoques’ album. The EP,‘Only You’ spotlights the French pianist/ composer’s score to the film of the same name, which opens in UK cinemas on 12th July, starring Laia Costa and Josh O’Connor and directed by newcomer Harry Wootliff. Having premiered at the BFI London Film Festival last year, the film explores a passionate, contemporary love story.
A digital-only release, Emilie’s EP features the four longest cues from the original score that sees its composer dialling into the intimacy of the narrative, focusing on two elements only – cello and piano, often layered and with subtle electronic manipulations.
Her first score for a widely distributed film, ‘Only You’ points towards a bright future working in the medium, following the footsteps of fellow 130701 alumni like Max Richter, Dustin O’Halloran, Hauschka and Jóhann Jóhannsson.
You can read about and preorder the EP here. A first track will be previewed next week.
