ABOUT THE SOUNDTRACK
Something in the Dirt is an electronic-orchestral hybrid score that creates its own distinct world. It features Hailey Niswanger on clarinet, bass clarinet, and flute as well as strings and arrangements from violinist Jake Falby both of whom helped to create unique rhythms, tones, and textures that matched the personality of the characters. The music is both dark and melancholic, yet also has an uplifting quality. Something in the Dirt is the fourth collaboration between The Album Leaf and this team of directors.
ABOUT THE FILM
When neighbors John and Levi witness supernatural events in their Los Angeles apartment building, they realize documenting the paranormal could inject some fame and fortune into their wasted lives. An ever-deeper, darker rabbit hole, their friendship frays as they uncover the dangers of the phenomena, the city and each other.
ABOUT THE ALBUM LEAF
The Album Leaf aka Jimmy LaValle is a composer who uses synthesizers and effects to create a nuanced palette of textures and dense, evocative atmospheres. His music defies easy categorization, with a style that creates soothing melodies, highlighted by jolts of unexpected dissonance. While drawing inspiration from minimalist composers and sound manipulators like Philip Glass, Brian Eno and Cliff Martinez, LaValle has developed his own unique method of decorating the sonic space in his music.
