Taste of Cinema's 10 Best Film Scores of 2017 alongside Bladerunner 2049, Wonderstruck, The Shape of Water and Phantom Thread
“The effects-rich score by composers Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli puts us in her head during intense scenes and starts allowing scraps of dialogue that challenge the morality of her judge-jury-executioner agenda"
The Hollywood Reporter
"The rape scene is difficult to watch, and Noelle’s catatonic initial response is vividly rendered by Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli’s unnerving score”
"Giona Ostinelli and Sonya Belousova are well regarded for their evocative scores to The Mist and M.F.A. and are one of the industry’s most prolific composers"
"M.F.A. is further proof that the composing team of Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli is one of the more innovative and exciting to listen to working today. Giona and Sonya do something different here and deliver an acid trip of a score which should not be missed"
International Film Music Critics Association
"Empty Canvas presents listeners with a cacophonous mixture of different sounds that come together to create something truly special. This cue is an excellent setup, but things only get progressively more interesting as the soundtrack nears its conclusion. Pursuing Him, the most prominent song on the soundtrack, is unlike anything you’ll hear in a movie this year. The sheer inventiveness of the score makes it a fantastic standalone experience. While it pairs perfectly with the mood of the film, it’s hard not to come back to some of the songs after the credits roll... They beg to be heard again and again with the bass turned all the way up"
Taste of Cinema
"You might be fooled in the first few seconds of the score which makes it sound like an indie minimalistic score, but the truth appears to be quite different. This is an all out electronic score with beats, breaks and pretty much all the bells and whistles and you know what, I like it... Every cue I listen to is like a new unknown box I can’t wait to unwrap because what’s inside is rather great"
"I found the music to be addictive – I listened to it twice on the first run. After researching the film, to learn what types of scenes this music was created for, I was amazed at how spot on the compositions were. There is no doubt in my mind that this score plays well with the visuals and the fact that I enjoyed it without even knowing what the movie was about speaks to its marketability as a standalone soundtrack"
