Blessed Benefit (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Music Composed By Andre Matthias

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Finding the right tone for the music of "Blessed Benefit" was not easy but very rewarding. Mahmoud originally wanted no score at all in his film, but at some point it was decided that some musical accompaniment might be helpful after all. The film didn't need much music and its mood needed to be just right. Not too funny, not too serious and certainly not too ethnic. So out went my original demo and several more abstract attempts at a musical identity. At this point I cold easily have panicked, but Mahmoud expressed a wonderful trust in me and carefully guided me towards what he had in mind. So instead of playing around with abstract ideas, we tackled the two most important scens of the movie first. Once we had nailed those, we carefully wove our way back to the rest of the score, and to my surprise I found that my original thematic ideas still worked. I only had to present them in a different arrangement. Everything went smooth from then on and I have to thank Mahmoud for his patience and guidance. It was a joy working with him and I'm very happy how everything turned out.

For this soundtrack album we assembled every track we recorded for the film during every stage of the production. We re-recorded some of my demo tracks with live instruments to improve on their original sound, and some of the shorter cues have been combined into lengthier tracks to make for a more rewarding listening experience. I hope you'll enjoy the album.
