Soundtracks: “Chronicle”

013112_Chronicle

Three high school pals play pranksters after they acquire mysterious powers in director Josh Trank’s “Chronicle,” but hijinks turn to tragedy when their darker impulses come to the fore. The film, out at the end of this week, used no composer to help create it’s mood switches, that job fell entirely to music supervisor, Andrea von Foerster.

“There’s no score in the film and all songs are used as source music,” von Foerster explained. “When Josh Trank and I discussed the music for ‘Chronicle’ we knew we wanted it to be cool, diverse and mostly indie.  Artists such as Deastro, MNDR and A B & The Sea were early favorites.”

Von Foerster, whose credits include music supervision on “(500) Days of Summer” and “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” was also responsible for the music in the prematurely canceled, “Stargate Universe,” a show of truly surprising quality and the best science fiction series since “Battlestar Galactica.”

“We set our sights high to license Jessie J’s ‘Price Tag’ for Matt’s hilarious car singing scene and David Bowie’s classic ‘Ziggy Stardust’ in a dark scene where Andrew lashes out,” Von Foerster said. You can see part of that car singing scene in the trailer below. Mini spoiler here: “We were extremely excited to add M83′s ‘This Bright Flash’ to close out our film in the end titles. We wanted the music in Chronicle to accurately reflect the varied musical tastes of high schoolers (and ourselves).”
