Melbourne, Australia (PressExposure) March 25, 2013 -- Aussie music legends to compose sci-fi soundtrack...
Legendary musicians Steve Kilbey, Martin Kennedy and the Martin Kennedy fronted All India Radio will lend their distinctive sounds to The Rare Earth feature film. Along with new original compositions this will include reinterpretations of Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven.
Shot independently in around Australia, the sonic creations created by the long time collaborators are a natural match for the stark landscapes showcased in the film.
No strangers to the silver screen, most famously with Under the Milky Way in cult classic Donny Darko, it's an exciting collaboration for filmmaker Aaron Stevenson, a long time fan.
"For an independent filmmaker, it's a dream come true to have Steve and Martin come on board," says the director.
"Apart from the fact I've been a huge fan for years, their music was a huge inspiration to the story and to the vibe of the film. I'm really excited they've come on board."
The film will also be the debut feature for New York Tropfest Best Actress winner Eliza D'Souza. The film also stars Prosper Taruvinga and 7 years old Bondi Stevenson.
