Is the music original in the film?
Yes.  The music is very important to us in this particular film.  We treat it as if it's another character, or more accurately a manifestation of the spirit of the characters; crying out on behalf of them when words would not suffice.  Unlike the traditional method where the music is scored once the final edit of the film is complete, the development of music for this film is directly tied to it's production and has been and will continue to be created simultaneously with everything else.  If you would like to hear some of the samples visit our Music page.
