Listen to Daniel Hart’s Full Score for David Lowery’s ‘A Ghost Story’

Written by on July 12, 2017 


If you’ve seen A Ghost Story — or even just the trailer — then you likely have Dark Rooms’ track I Get Overwhelmed on repeat, but now we have composer Daniel Hart’s beautiful full score for David Lowery’s powerful film about love, loss, and time itself. Rather than create any haunting compositions, the score is a tender, contemplative one that matches the film’s both personal and expansive themes.

“Since the dialogue is so limited once the ghost arrives, the music is often right up front and center, whenever it’s happening,” Hart tells Film Music Mag. “To that end, I always want to be careful not to take over the scene. I want to avoid having the music become overbearing. It’s still only one element in the storytelling going on, so I was actually trying to avoid having the music communicate the ghost’s emotions too much. Instead, I tried to play to the action of the scene, which made my job much easier.”

Listen to the full score below.


A Ghost Story score will be released on vinyl on July 14. Pre-order here.
