Labor Day Soundtrack (Rolfe Kent)

Labor Day Soundtrack (Rolfe Kent)
New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ CineMedia Promotions) Rolfe Kent teams again with director Jason Reitman for LABOR DAY, which stars Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. Kent took intimate instrumentation, including guitars, charango and sounds of crickets, and processed them to create intense moody ambiances, at once both organic and other-worldly, delicately navigating a line between tension and emotion.

ROLFE KENT on LABOR DAY
"Nothing could have prepared me for LABOR DAY," said Kent. "It was an experience unlike any other I have had. The music was to bring focus to the images, but in an incredibly delicate way. Really an indefinable way. You know it's simple to compose happy or sad music, but to create something simple yet sophisticated, that calls the listener to be curious and yet uncertain and perhaps a little unnerved, well it called me to forget everything I knew about composition and discover a whole new musical language. It was at once incredibly stressful, and deeply rewarding."
