Verbicide Magazine Reviews "Beyond This Place" Complete With Live Score
"The film is accompanied by a hauntingly poignant score by Sufjan Stevens and Raymond Raposa. The screening I attended had Sufjan and Raymond at the foot of the stage performing the score live. It’s an interesting experience — when the film started, my attention was torn. I found myself paying mind to the performing artists there in person and not focusing on the film. Still, as the opening music ended and the film drew me in, the subtle Hawaiian twangs and folk pickings melted into one with the film. The sound was deep and rich, providing a definitive difference between the live sound and a mixed master." Check out Verbicide Magazine's entire review.
