Press Release from Music Box:
World Premiere CD Release. Expanded edition.
37 minutes of music, including 3 previously unreleased tracks.
Limited Collector’s Edition.
In collaboration with Hippocampus and Radar Films, Music Box Records presents the premiere CD release of the score for Nicolas Boukhrief's Made in France (2015) composed by Rob (Maniac, Horns, Populaire).
The plot of this French crime thriller-drama film follows a freelance journalist who infiltrates the underground hardcore preaching mosques, befriending four local young men who dream of training for Jihad. A Frenchman, converted to islam, comes back from Pakistan with a mission for them: launch a deadly attack in Paris.
Rob utilized cinematic codes, as if this were a John Carpenter film: sequences made spine-tingling by use of electronica, rhythm machines, and film noir themes. The electronic score has a very late-'70’s vibe.
For this premiere release of Rob’s Made in France score on compact disc, Music Box Records has added three bonus tracks which did not appear on previous vinyl or digital releases.
