RE: HOMS UND ICH

Dear All,

I’m glad to present you with my latest release — a soundtrack album for the documentary feature Homs und Ich. The film was produced by German broadcaster NDR and premiered at the latest edition of Filmfest Hamburg on September 2019. It’s a powerful real life testimony by Syrian student Sulaiman Tadmory, who documented his experience of surviving the siege of Homs for almost two years before deportation. Through the scattered fragments of his daily life, we are offered a raw glimpse of the horrors of war and its heavy repercussions on an entire community. I reflect on my approach to the project in this trailer:



The soundtrack was written and produced in April 2019. Its foundation consists of a series of resampling experiments from Tadmory’s original camera recordings complemented with music for piano, violin and cello. My thanks go to Sulaiman, co-directors Stephan Löhr and Katharina Schiele, our commissioning editor Timo Großpietsch and all the production team of this movie. Homs und Ich (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is released digitally via 1631 Recordings and Decca Publishing. My greatest wish is for you to experience it soon. You can stream the album here and order a copy at this link.

Yours,

-M
