Sonic genius Nicolas Jaar is always finding inventive new avenues in which to showcase his musical talents. And in his latest endeavor, he’s created his own soundtrack to the 1968 Soviet experimental film The Color Of Pomegranates. Directed by Armenian director Sergei Parajanov, the film has been described as a, “cine-poem of the life of the 18th-century Armenian/Georgian poet and singer Sayat-Nova…Michelangelo Antonioni put it simply: ‘Parajanov’s Color of Pomegranates is of a stunningly perfect beauty.’”
Rich with color and stunningly composed, the haunting imagery of the film is brought to life through Jaar’s haunting sounds, which reverberate through each frame with beautiful precision. And now the 80-minute soundtrack is available to stream on YouTube under the name Pomegranates, featuring 20 new tracks from the artist. Enjoy for yourself below.
