Nick Cave & Warren Ellis announce original score to 'La Panthère Des Neiges'

Having scarcely committed themselves to work on film and TV these last few years, Nick Cave & Warren Ellis have now announced their involvement in scoring a new upcoming film.

The new soundtrack for 'La Panthère Des Neiges' will include the newly unveiled lead track 'We Are Not Alone', and is set to be released on the 23rd December.

The film itself features Vincent Munier, one of the world’s most renowned wildlife photographers, who takes the adventurer and novelist Sylvain Tesson (In the Forest of Siberia) with him on his latest mission. For several weeks, they’ll explore these valleys searching for unique animals and try to spot the snow leopard, one of the rarest and most difficult big cats to approach. It will be available from the 17th December.

Speaking about the new project, Warren Ellis said, “There is something about the heart of this film that draws you in. I realised after a day, that I wanted to do whatever it took to compose an entire original score. The film deserved to have its own musical voice. I booked five days and asked Nick if he could come in for a day to write a theme song and play some piano. He saw the film and stayed for four days.

"In the end we made what I think is one of the most beautiful films we have ever worked on. One of my favourite experiences ever working on a project. The stars are the animals in all their wild glory, as we have never seen them before, and man in reverence and wonder.”
