Discovery: Daniel Hart

Daniel Hart is an American cinematic composer whose atmospheric new piece One Year Hence caught my attention.

By Graeme Smith

The piece comes from Daniel’s score for the upcoming film The Green Knight and it’s full of suitably medieval motifs. There is a touch of the futuristic to proceedings as well though with throbbing synths joining the choir of voices. Dark and foreboding the textured composition rises, falls, twists and turns and left me feeling a little on edge.

Daniel has been a feature film composer since 2013 and has worked with A24 – the production company behind The Green Knight – before. He’s also played alongside notable bands including St. Vincent, Broken Social Scene and The Polyphonic Spree.

Both The Green Knight and its soundtrack will be out on 30 July. You can check out One Year Hence below.
