Moog Explores Synth-Heavy Movie Soundtrack

New Documentary with composer Daniel Lopatin looks at crafting the Uncut Gems soundtrack      10/01/20

Composer Daniel Lopatin and filmmaker Josh Safdie sat down with Moog Music to discuss the soundtrack of ‘Uncut Gems,’ the latest Safdie brothers crime thriller featuring Adam Sandler, Kevin Garnett, Idina Menzel, and The Weeknd. In the resulting  documentary, Lopatin details the creative process behind scoring a film that blends compulsive gambling, cosmic new age music, the NYC Diamond District, addiction, and the NBA.

Moog began a dialogue with Lopatin at the beginning of the scoring process, which coincided with the artist’s initial exploration of the Moog One synthesizer. They saythat through studio visits and sound design, Moog and Lopatin developed a synergy that helped birth the unique sounds the composer had envisioned for the film’s soundtrack—sounds that nod to the synth-heavy scores and compositions of electronic music icons. This kind of creative collaboration, the instrument company notes, has always been the heart and soul of its business.

The ‘Uncut Gems’ soundtrack was released in December on Warp Records.
