Info for Waltz With Bashir
Max Richter’s score for Ari Folman’s 2008 animated depiction of the 1982 Lebanon war is a haunting evocation of war recalled through memory and social narrative. His score for the film earned Richter the European Film Award for Best Composer in 2008 from the European Film Academy.
One night at a bar, an old friend tells director Ari about a recurring nightmare in which he is chased by 26 vicious dogs. Every night, the same number of beasts. The two men conclude that there's a connection to their Israeli Army mission in the first Lebanon War of the early eighties. Ari is surprised that he can't remember a thing anymore about that period of his life. It's not in his system. Intrigued by this riddle, he decides to meet and interview old friends and comrades around the world. He needs to discover the truth about that time and about himself. As Ari delves deeper and deeper into the mystery, his memory begins to creep up in even more enigmatic images ...
"A memoir, a history lesson, a combat picture, a piece of investigative journalism and an altogether amazing film" - New York Times, 2008
"Clearly one of the best pictures of the year." - New York Observer, 2008
"Its fluid boundary between the real and surreal lifts it into the realm of myth." - New York Magazine, 2008
"Extraordinary and painfully timely" - Entertainment Weekly, 2008
The work of the award-winning British composer Max Richter includes concert music, film scoring, and a series of acclaimed solo albums.
Working with a variety of collaborators including Tilda Swinton, Robert Wyatt, Future Sound of London, and Roni Size, Max's work explores the meeting points of many contemporary artistic languages, and, as might be expected from a student of Luciano Berio, Max’s work embraces a wide range of influences.
Recent projects include the ballet INFRA, for Wayne McGregor at The Royal Ballet, with scenography by Julian Opie, the award-winning score to Ari Folman's Waltz with Bashir, and the music installationThe Anthropocene, with Darren Almond at White Cube.
Max's music has formed the basis of numerous dance works, including pieces by Lucinda Childs, NDT, Ballet du Rhin, American Ballet Theatre, Dresden Semper Oper, The Dutch National Ballet, Norwegian National Ballet, among many others, while film makers using work by Max include Martin Scorsese (Shutter Island).
Recent commissions include the opera SUM, based on David Eagleman’s acclaimed book, premiered at The Royal Opera House, London and Mercy, commissioned by Hilary Hahn.
Current projects include Vivaldi Recomposed for Deutsche Grammophon, recorded by British violinist Daniel Hope and the Konzerthaus Orchester, Berlin, as well as a variety of other recording and film projects.
