The Song of Scorpions wins the Torino Special Award at the Seeyousound Music & Film Festival, Turin, Italy, February 2018.
“Because it gives back to music sacred and spiritual values forgotten by contemporary culture.”
The festival, in its fourth edition, defines itself “In search of the image of the music which the cinema can offer in return and of how the first can or not be in sync with the other. A sound that can be seen, not just a soundtrack. Not only musicals, not only biopics, but a collection of – often indie – productions, which can make these themes well and truly tangible. It is a proposal born from the base, from the passion of professionals and cultists who have conceived and are now conducting this challenge, to bring to the attention of all how this cinema genre has influenced the popular tradition, and how its impact on a common feeling is far from dying out.”
“The original Music for the film is scored by Beatrice Thiriet, whose conjuring with tones delicately, relentlessly summons the phantoms of sensations & thoughts that only cinema can give residence to. The Songs are written & composed by Madan Gopal Singh, whose words & rhythms are reveries, ceaselessly celebrating clear-sighted revelations about our implacable mystery. The Songs are sung by Bindhumalini Narayanaswamy, whose breath & voice sensuously lifts us into the trance where the total freedom of the mind & body seems a veritable possibility.”
By Anup Singh, writer/ director.
The magic of music and its healing power truly come to life in this movie. Much gratitude to the SeeYouSound festival for this recognition. Bravo Anup Singh, for a powerful connection to this magic, and visionary guidance in the creative process of the music for this film!
