KeepMoving Records announces the CD release of Yuri Poteyenko’s for the time-hopping action thriller Frontier.
The film tells the story of young and disillusioned businessman Mikhail Shurov doesn’t get to access his dream property, a sandy quarry at the Nevsky Piglet as archaeological work needs to be done on the site. Confused about why the events of the past should undermine the investments of the future, Mikhail’s outlook changes when the removal of a mysterious object from the excavations lands him in the past, on the tragically famous Nevsky Piglet during the Great Patriotic War.
In this project, one of Poteyenko’s biggest challenges was finding the right balance between contemporary and the old school way of film scoring as the storyline jumps between two different time periods with different visual styles. The time-hopping aspect of the story is achieved through clever changes in approaches to the two timeframes, a crescendo that represents the time jumps and a balance of electronics for battle scenes that take place in two worlds.
The limited-edition CD comes with liner notes by Gergely Hubai discussing the film based on commentary by the composer himself.
