I highly recommend another film scores and chamber music by Arturo Cardelús

This is one of the sources that Kubrick stole from....

Ooops..... that inspired Kubrick.

And the music is nice. And it has celesta!

LOL! big grin

As per the topic, there is often great stuff in shorts (he, he). I attended the Norwegian short film festival a couple of months back, and I particularly enjoyed Jonathan Sigsworth's score for Niels Windfeldt's exceptional short film RISING WATER. Very Max Richter-y. Can be viewed in its entirety here: https://vimeo.com/347475575 . Highly recommended, it's only 5 minutes! Beautiful tableaux in the style of Malick/Kubrick/Scott.

I also recommend this album from MovieScore Media that highlights a few shorts -- perhaps in the more traditional vein, but still some gems:

Really nice score. I've never heard of Eldon Rathburn before.

I made a short and met my composer, Laurent Watteau, here on the FSM message board. Creating the music was one of my proudest experiences on the film, and I was thrilled with Laurent's score. Sadly, Laurent and I lost touch, and I've not heard from my friend in years. I still maintain a website with a page devoted to Laurent's music: http://www.glitchsite.com/Glitch_Music.html

I posted this link in another thread, but to provide it again here seems appropriate, given the subject heading - the short film "Light, Strong and Beautiful" from 1974, with music by Elmer Bernstein -

Just submitted the short to IMDb since it was missing. I'll have to give it a listen later.

Wow, this is really good music. I especially like the part after when they get to the asteroid belt.

Edit: just saw your other posts in "Music for Shorts". Yes, the score is wonderful.

Another tidbit: you may have noticed the logo in the upper left corner of the clip posted. That is the National Film Board of Canada/L'Office national du film (ONF). It is a government funded agency set up to promote Canadian film culture (yes, we are a near socialistic country, even if we like to pretend we are not wink ).


Replying to Advise and Consent:

Yes, and some nice subtle writing for a small orchestra. I'm terribly impressed, and looking over his filmography.

I remember the NFB, I think, from watching "The International Animation Festival" on PBS back in the 70's. Gosh but that was a nice show, all animated shorts.

Haha! Yes. One of the few benefits to show for being a near "socialistic"country.

The NFB has produced many, many an enjoyable film over the past few decades. Why just last week I caught a 70's québecois film "La Gammick" (that's more or less québecois french for the" the schemers") which sported an absolutely kick ass Schifrin-esque score by François Dompierre.
