Ohal - 'Cancelled Faces OST' - Cassette

10.00

Ohal is a pianist, a collaborator, an activist, a writer and engineer. Her music is a collage of synthesized sounds, field recordings and voice. Fusing the logic of contemporary composition with the sensibilities of pop songs, Ohal builds narrative and pathos out of soundscape and abstraction. Styles Upon Styles will release both her score to Lior Shamriz’ film, Cancelled Faces, and her album, Acid Park, in 2016. 

Cancelled Faces is Lior Shamriz’s two-part noir about a gay couple’s love affair in Seoul and a cult in the desert. Ohal’s score follows these intertwined narratives with two corresponding sets of sounds. The main narrative, set against a backdrop of urban density, self-doubt and paranoia, is driven by cold synthesizers and melancholic melodies anchored by counterpoint and harmonic pathos. 

The secondary plot functions as an allegory to the first one. An exploration of the oppressed body through the story of the fall of Jerusalem in 70 CE, the narrative frames a lawless landscape where the fourth wall is broken and theater and dance take the place of traditional cinematic dialogue. The journey through Jerusalem is arranged for marimba, clarinet, and strings, relying heavily on overtones and delay to create momentary interruptions that emphasize covert emotional content.

Styles Upon Styles will release the Cancelled Faces score on cassette February 26, 2016 and digitally on April 15. All tape purchases include one of two screenprinted 11”x15” posters designed by Inva Cota.
