Album: Song of the Sea
Description: Composed by the brilliant French composer Bruno Coulais (Coraline, The Secret of Kells, Oceans) and Irish folk & world music group Kila, Song of the Sea is an album of great magic and youthful wonder. Bruno Coulais is known for a particular sound, one created by a small ensemble of interesting instruments along with a feminine voice. Song of the Sea is no different, and if albums like Coraline and The Secret of Kells works for you, this should be considered third in his cannon of music great for writers. It’s playful, airy, and inquisitive; however, it is not without moments of difficult circumstance and tension. Writers working on children’s literature with a magical realism tilt will be well assisted by this soundtrack.
