ALL ABOUT E
Australian feature, directed by Louise Wadley and produced by Jay Rutovitz at Girl's Own Pictures. The irresistible musical challenge was to help tell the story of E the classical clarinetist, at odds with her new role as DJ, also the Australian landscape and E's Lebanese roots. Basil incorporated Middle Eastern instruments, clarinet, strings and pop/electro elements combined to make a unique sound for this film. It's already a hit at the Sydney and Melbourne Gay and Lesbian Film Festivals. As "Same Same" said:
The soundtrack haunts with a succulent clarinet throughout, linking country and city, parents and daughter, the present and past of a central relationship that combines love and misunderstanding... the juxtaposition of Arabic music and iconic Australian landscape is particularly memorable.
