The Film Music of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis join the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra this August to perform a selection of suites from their highly distinctive film scores as part of the 68th MIFF.

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ film scores are instantly recognisable for their minimal and hauntingly beautiful tones. Full of light and shade, creeping dread and inconsolable yearning, the heavily instrumental sounds inject humanity into the ghostly frontier towns, parched desert landscapes, post-apocalyptic war zones and extra-terrestrial vistas of their renowned films.

As part of the 2019 MIFF, Cave and Ellis join the MSO for the first time to perform a selection of suites from their highly distinctive film scores in full symphonic sound.
