RELEASE DESCRIPTION

Very few films have had opening credit sequences as disarming as AFTER YANG - "Welcome to Family of 4" is at once an introduction to all of the key and incidental players of the chamber play that the film becomes, but also acts as the film's central theme in action - how disruptive grief can be on the family unit. What follows is a patience and sensitive portrayal, both sonically and visually, of the confusion, and occasional clarity that come from unexpected loss. 

Matsumiya's score is also meta in many ways - using an AI plugin as a tool to sequence a few tracks - teaching it the themes she had written for the film and asking the AI to perform an interpolation of sorts. What it produces is a refracted, strange but poetic reinterpretation of ongoing melodies from the score, mirroring the film's narrative of seeing the family through the memories of their former robot companion. And if that wasn't enough, the film features additional music from famed, iconic Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, that plays during one of the film's most emotional moments.

The music from AFTER YANG, much like the film itself, is a reminder of the beauty that exists in the spaces between your perception of reality. An astonishing work of filmmaking, and a truly gorgeous score. This limited edition vinyl pressing features a 12-page booklet with liner notes by writer David Sims (The Atlantic, Blank Check Podcast) and is pressed on 180-gram Tea Leaves vinyl (also available on 180-gram Black vinyl)
