Biographie de l'artiste
Artist Background: Initially know as a pioneer of trance music, BT has arrived as one of the most cutting-edge artists and composers for a multitude of musical styles. His impressive career began with training in classical music, and an education from the Berklee College of Music, lending him the ability to direct eighty-piece orchestras for film projects. Highly regarded as a film composer, BT has scored such blockbuster hits as The Fast and The Furious, Under Suspicion, Go and Driven. He is also recognized for producing artists such as *NSYNC and Britney Spears, remixing Madonna, Lenny Kravitz, Korn and Seal, and working with Sting and Peter Gabriel. In 2003, he released his fourth full-length release, Emotional Technology (Nettwerk America), featuring the hugely successful radio single, "Simply Being Loved (Somnambulist). About Monster Monster was written and directed by first-timer Patty Jenkins and produced by Charlize Theron, Mark Damon, Clark Peterson, Donald Kushner and Brad Wyman. The film is based upon the true story of Aileen Wuornos, who was convicted of the murders of seven men in Florida, and executed in 2002 after 12 years on death row. Jenkins unearths a love story in the midst of the horrors and pathologies of two misfits: Wuornos, a prostitute deemed by the media as the first "female serial-killer" "a monster" and Selby Ward (Ricci), who was sent by her parents to live with an aunt in Florida in order to "cure her homosexuality." The two meet and fall in love just as Wuornos was nearing suicidal despair. Selby becomes the first person in Wuornos tragic existence to value her as a human being.

First off, it's a two disc soundtrack. There's a DVD and a CD. The DVD is actually the primary medium for the soundtrack. It was composed for surround sound, and the DVD contains the soundtrack in DTS audio, as it was meant to be heard. It also has a stereo mix. It's about 2 hours long, which is another reason it was released on DVD, and it's pretty much a single work, with tracks fading into each other. Absolutely brilliant stuff. It's hard to believe it was composed by BT--it's not trance. It's very ambient, kind of like Eno, but with fascinating melodies and rhythms coming through often enough to make it more accessable than some other pure ambient music. It's played with real instruments, prominently featuring a hurdy-gurdy, but it has sounds and samples woven through it also. And the 5.1 is used to full effect, making it a completely immersive experience.
Of course, there's a CD with it as well. It contains a stereo mix of about half the tracks (mainly the more melodic ones), and it's great. Well worth the price of the disc even if you don't have the equipment to take advantage of the surround sound experience.
I'm getting a fairly hefty collection of soundtracks, and it's not often anymore that I'm really surprised by a movie score. This one did it for me. Just thought I'd share.
The best way to listen is of course in DTS 5.1 sound mix, but it can also be played as a normal DVD via PCM sound, which I don't recommend at all. I've switched between PCM stereo and DTS and the difference can't be compared as you miss out on the sonic quality and surround sound experience. The music score was actually mixed with DTS 5.1 as the artist has intended from the start so it's not like those DVDs that you buy afterward that was re-mixed to play under 5.1 surround, but the artist never thought to play it that way and the instruments are just all over the place. With this DTS mix, you get the whole feel as instruments creep from behind you right from track 1.
Since this is an audio disc, the concentration is in the audio quality. However, as you play each track there are video stills from the movie to remind you of the feel and event from where the music was inspired from.
As a DVD, there are extras such as Interview with BT and the Director, Patty Jenkins; Theatrical Trailer; Gallery; and even a Film Mixing Demo which gives you a glimpse of the three basic elements in a film sound - dialogue, music and effects - and which you can play altogether or separately in a snippet of the movie, Monster.
This is the audio CD part. Although there is a confusing DTS logo on the disc (which only states DTS entertainment), there is no DTS surround here. In this disc there are only 15 tracks (versus 24 tracks in Disc One). I guess the reason also is because of the limitation in size of an audio CD versus a DVD. The arrangement is the same based on the movie theme. After listening to the first disc, this disc suddenly became bland. Where there was music coming from behind, this is the plain two stereo mix. Nothing to listen to, just a compromise to bring on the road since only a few (high-end) cars come with a DVD player let alone a DTS-capable deck.
A word of caution: if you're looking for BT's usual techno beats, this is not the album for you. This is a musical score inspired from the movie, Monster. However, this is still a good listen that presents itself as a ChillOut session which is still great to crank up or mellow down as a party/ambient sound. Enjoy!
The first track remembers me of The Big Blue. If you have seen The Big Blue, by Luc Besson, well, this soundtrack may also have fitted The Big Blue very very easily. The music is large, it grabs you and add emotions to what you are viewing. BT did a wonderful job composing Monster's music. I suggest you to view the movie first... while keeping your ears wide open! And then buy the soundtrack.
My appreciation of a few of the tracks:
Track 1: Ferris Wheels (Love Theme) .... really makes me think of The Big Blue, by Luc Besson... an excellent track, very long, filled with variations, intense and intelligent piano. Could also have been a track in the movie The Crow. You can feel strong emotions and intensity in here. Great great great piece of art. Perfect, indeed!
Track 2: "Call me daddy" killing. Hard to categorize this track. But I think you can try to imagine the end of Thelma and Louise movie with this track.
Track 3: "Childhood Montage" (Title Sequence) Mmmmmm... very interesting orchestration. It sounds like it was made by the French group "Air", (And it would be one the Air best tracks!)
Track 4: The bus stop : Wow! What a great orchestration between piano, drums, guitars and drum bass. Deep and light, but intense and 9 minutes 56 sec! Very smooth track with some very inspired piano. Incredible job by BT, once again. Almost worth the price of the soundtrack by itself! Great background music to chat, to drink wine, do a foot massage, study or make love! This track is a wonderful piece of art.
Track 5: Girls kiss: a more rythmic track, here.
Track 9: Turning Tricks (Hooking II): pretty pretty cool half-techno half-ambient sound. Nice work, again!
