New film music

Just now Sid Hille is working on a film score for Saara Cantell’s new feature film ‘Ainoat oikeat / The real one’. It’s a romantic comedy with Antti Reini, Anna-Maija Tuokko and Ilkka Villi.

Sid has composed 49 cues of music, some of only 30 seconds, others of up to 4 minutes  in length.
The score is written for a sextet which consists of some of the leading Finnish jazz musicians of this day:
Verneri Pohjola – trumpet
Petri Puolitaival – saxophones
Teemu Viinikainen – guitar
Sid Hille – piano
Antti Lötjönen – bass
Teppo Mäkynen – drums

Hille’s score deviates quite drastically from the typical ‘Hollywood’-scoring of this genre (which would be a quirky orchestral score) by contrasting the funny (and sometimes more serious) confusions of the film with a cool jazz score.
