Air-Edel Records Release 'Tigre Gente'
For their 50th release, Air-Edel Records is pleased to be releasing the latest soundtrack from longtime collaborator Patrick Jonsson. ‘’Tigre Gente’ (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) will be available from the 7th July 2023 across all digital platforms, including Apple Music, Amazon, Spotify, Tidal and Deezer.
Spanning over mist-covered jungles in the Amazon to bustling wildlife markets in China, ‘Tigre Gente’ follows the storylines of two passionate people fighting to stop the jaguar trade before it’s too late.
It was such a privilege to write music for the incredible visuals and story which Liz the director captured.
We wanted to tap into something primal, organic, and for the texture of the music to feel like it has eons of history to it. With the help of some local traditional instruments and the flute-like violin playing of Michael Levine, I feel like we hopefully managed to capture that idea and give a sense of expanse to the visuals via the music.
It’s a score I’m very proud of and I hope people get a chance to hear the score in the context of the film, as it’s such an immersive experience to hear it alongside the visuals and sound design. But I hope that it can also stand alone on its own and transport the listener back to the jungles of Madidi National Park. – Patrick Jonsson
