Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Kusiak Music, Arlington, MA / Bratislava, Slovakia.

The soundtrack for Tabloid, acclaimed filmmaker Errol Morris' documentary about a beauty queen (Miss Wyoming, Joyce McKinney) and her strange abduction of her Mormon missionary boyfriend in the late 1970s, was scored by television, film, and commercial composer John Kusiak. Alternately stoic and whimsical, Kusiak's choice to treat the subject matter with such regality (much of the work is built on a foundation of strings and harp-led chamber music) is to be commended, as it lends the already odd tale an air of David Lynch-ian, left-field grandiosity. Elsewhere, electric guitar, marimba, accordion, and celeste provide knowing moments of self-awareness that echo Yann Tiersen's work on Amelie. ~ James Christopher Monger
