'Candy-wrapper music' hits sweet spot in Cannes 'Youth' movie

Yahoo! Music News - Thu, 05/21/2015 - 01:20

Director Paolo Sorrentino and cast members pose on the red carpet as they arrive for the screening of the film "Youth" in competition at the 68th Cannes Film Festival in CannesBy Michael Roddy CANNES, France (Reuters) - American composer David Lang has written what he calls "candy-wrapper music" for the Cannes competition film "Youth" in which Michael Caine plays a retired musician wrestling with old age. It won't win him another Pulitzer Prize, the award he got in 2008 for his haunting "Little Match Girl Passion", and the music he composed for the film's candy wrapper scenes wasn't even used. Instead, the film by Italian director Paolo Sorrentino has occasional scenes with scratchy sounds and a catchy rhythm that come from Caine's character scrunching up a candy wrapper in a very deliberate way and manipulating it back and forth in his fingers.
