Composers Nyman and Albarn use violin, Jew's harp, banjo, squeeze box, and chorus in their substantially successful effort to resurrect 18th Century music on this soundtrack. The music is fittingly loose and simple as to suggest it as an actual field recording from an actual 100-year-old army camp where cannibals linger. As a matter of fact, this collaboration between Blur
's Damon Albarn
and minimalist composer Nyman is so good in the authenticity area that maybe only an aficionado of 18th century music could really get into this. Certainly any Blur
fans and even some Nyman fans are in for a surprise.
