The american composer & trombonist (also known for his collaboration with Arthur Russell and John Lurie’s The Lounge Lizards) meets the british director Andy Kelleher and has recorded a breathtaking soundtrack for an emotionally gripping movie that puts a spotlight on Fronto-Temporal-Degeneration (FTD) and how people affected by that incurable disease (and those around them) react to the difficult situation that arises from its existence.
With Second Spring Peter Zummo creates a spherical soundtrack to the movie of the same title. In eighteen ingratiating tracks Zummo takes the listener on a driving sound journey.
“I had been developing a project called Highway Brain Planet for about a year before I heard from Andy about working on Second Spring. For me, the peculiar song title resonated with driving, archaeology, and saving the earth. Working with basic tracks recorded at Duck Kee Studio No. 8 in Mebane, North Carolina, I added some trumpets for a “highway” scene in the film.” – Peter Zummo
