3​:​19 (OS​.​039)

by Robin Guthrie





"Je ne vais pas insister sur le talent de Robin Guthrie. La musique de Cocteau Twins et de Violet Indiana, ses albums instrumentaux, ses collaborations avec Harold Budd et de nombreux autres artistes le prouvent assez bien. C'est sa sensibilité, sa gentillesse, son humanité que je voudrais mettre en valeur. 3:19 traite de l'amitié, de l'amour et des coïncidences de la vie. Trois éléments que Robin sait si bien sentir et mettre en musique. Je n'aurais pas pu faire de meilleur choix en lui demandant de réaliser la bande originale. Merci mon ami for the wonderful music you created for my first movie."
Dany Saadia 2008

3:19 is the title of the original soundtrack recording by Robin Guthrie for the acclaimed Spanish film of the same name.

This is the former Cocteau Twins Guitarist's second soundtrack following Mysterious Skin and it features all the trademark Guthrie, ethereal soundscape you'd expect. This time, however, Robin has added piano, just a bit a strings and a few sound effects that nicely communicate the film's mood.

Robin Guthrie's talent should need no introduction. As co-founder and guitarist of Cocteau Twins and producer of bands like Lush and Chapterhouse, he has created some of the most beautiful music of recent times and is widely regarded as a musical visionary, his sound influencing a generation.

After Cocteau Twins broke up in 1997 he has made a series of instrumental recordings including ‘Imperial’, ‘Continental’, ‘Everlasting’ and ‘Waiting for Dawn’. Recently he has collaborated with Harold Budd on the twin albums, ‘After the Night Falls’ and ‘Before the Day Breaks’ as well as the soundtrack to Greg Araki’s ‘Mysterious Skin’. His latest soundtrack is for the Spanish cult hit film 3:19 which will be released in the fall. His recent production and collaboration duties include Mahogany, Ulrich Schnauss, Manual, Apollo Heights, Heligoland and Resplandor.
At ATP Robin will be performing, for the first time in the US, with ‘Galerie’, his second animated film following the award winning ‘Lumière’ from 2004. Robin’s approach to animation remains in keeping with his approach to sound, very rich, emotive, layered and treated. He creates distinctive landscapes, both sonic and visual, that have become his trademark throughout his recorded work and his live performance.
