The Playlist posted a terrific story yesterday which gives a status report of sorts for what the beloved French electronic music duo AIR has been up to these days. The group’s latest passion project has been the original soundtrack for the brand new version of Georges Méliès’ 1902 film A Trip To The Moon. The film, in fact, opened this year’s Cannes Film Festival. And you won’t have to wait much longer to get your hands on a copy of AIR’s score for the film, because AstralWerks will be releasing it on February 7th. The style of the album is somewhat different than what we’re used to hearing from them, and bandmember Nicolas Godin said recently: “‘A Trip to the Moon’ is undoubtedly more organic than most of our past projects. We wanted it to sound ‘handmade,’ knocked together’, a bit like Méliès’ special effects. Everything is played live…like Méliès’ film, our soundtrack is nourished by living art.” And as if that’s not enough to look forward to, Au Revoir Simone and Beach House member Victoria Legrand are also featured on the album. On top of their composition work for A Trip To The Moon, AIR also scored a new short film for the luxury jewelry house Cartier‘s latest campaign entitled “How Far Would You Go For Love”. The film was directed by Waverly Films. For more information, including the tracklisting for AIR’s Méliès score, be sure to visit The Playlist.
