|A Score For Tesla: Music From The Film Megahertz Released As Name Your Price Download|
The motion picture 'MHz (Megahertz)' is a new movie about what happens when a self-destructive radio DJ meets Nikola Tesla in the after-life, and the ways they help each other work through the tattered energies of their lives. While the film is just beginning its festival submission process, the film's composer has released his soundtrack of mostly moods and textures as a digital download.
'A Score for Tesla: Music from the film Megahertz' is an atmospheric soundtrack with moments of electronic experimentation from musician Knight Berman Jr, best known for his work as the voice behind eclectic indie-pop project The Marble Tea (http://www.marbletea.com). According to Berman, he was pointed toward specific pieces by Brian Eno for inspiration.
"Delightful. I'd recently finished reading 'Brian Eno: His Music and the Vertical Color of Sound' by Eric Tamm and was itching to try something different (I'm usually writing silly pop songs on the acoustic guitar). Coaxing melodies from tones and noises like a child persuading magic from his chemistry set...it isn't always very pretty, and indeed often quite messy, but it's an incredible mix of fun and frustration."
Berman's use of "untamed frequencies" hopes to match Tesla's struggles with those who could neither understand nor support his visions for a brighter planet.
The film - from Jordan Graye and Anam Cara Productions - deals with the emotional and spiritual dramas of the characters, but also provides insight into the enigmatic inventor's personal and professional life as it aims to set the records straight about Tesla's massive contribution to the modern world.
