On record, when the music establishes the illusion of the real itself

The soundtrack of a film is already creating a unit of time when the image has a space unit. We need to create a natural balance between the actors' voices and their sound environment in harmony with the image. During the shooting, what is watched in the image may not have been picked up by the HF microphones or the surround sound, so we must recreate them as if they had been picked up directly.

The quality of Matthieu Langlet's work, who is a member of the collective "La Puce à l'Oreille", is impressive, just by listening to the soundtrack, each element of the image is found in the ear, the slightest flutter of wings of bird, the change of environment feels as if we had the image right in front of our eyes, like a radio play.

But a film is also a soundtrack, this requires a talented composer who come to make a sound texture to the film and to relay a narrative rhythm and dynamic to the image. Already for "Partie de Poker" (Poker Hand)Espérance Pham Thai Lan and Nathan Symes enriched their respective creations with the song  Twist of Chapel Hill.
This time, Nathan has begun on lyrics written by Espérance for the song "Un joli conte" and composed music of it on the pictures of "Plus belle sera la chute" (The more beautiful they come). Then it's Matthew Langlet who associated the whole by mixing his fabulous hearing history and Nathan's rhythmic music.

But if you want to learn more about Nathan Symes, he confides in an interview during the Festival Strasbourg Chicago in 2012. However, this time, the collaboration for this short is with Nathan Symes a solo.

From now on we can say that Nathan Symes is for Espérance Pham Thai Lan which Ennio Morricone was for Sergio Leone: a real aesthetic communion where each keeps his world and reveals the universe of the other, in brief a true artistic communion made to last.
