Title - 'Tanna (Original Score)'
Artist - Antony Partos

'Tanna' is a 2015 Australian-Vanuatuan film set on the island of Tanna in the South Pacific, depicting the true story of a couple who decided to marry for love, rather than obey their parents' wishes. In some ways similar to Romeo and Juliet, the movie is based on an actual marriage dispute.

The film won the Audience Award Pietro Barzisa at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival. It was also selected as the Australian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 89th Academy Awards, and was nominated for the award in January 2017.

Composed by Antony Michael Partos, an Australian film and TV composer who specializes in creating scores that blend both acoustic and electronic elements with a mix of world musical instruments, the soundtrack is now available for all to own via Lightyear Entertainment.

With Partos's other feature film credits including Animal Kingdom (AFI Award for Best Feature Score), The Rover, Disgrace, The Home Song Stories (AFI Award for best feature score) and Unfinished Sky (AFI Award for best feature score), this quite delightful, heartfelt and poignant album of sweeping music begins with the floating "First Love" and quickly steps up the tension within the pipe-laden "Hidden Enemy". Next comes the lush ambiance of "The Secret", the stirring "Enemy Territory", the emphatic "The Volcano", and then both "The Spirit Awakens" and vast wasteland's vibe of "Taboo".

With a running time of 25:29, 'Tanna' may not be the longest album of original score work, but it is one of the most spacial aware, if that have no doubt. For the way in which composer Antony Partos creates his cinematic soundscapes are, one by one, both alluring and masterful. 'Tanna' continues on with "Abscond", the haunting "Reunion", and then rounds out with both the eerie "Hostile Land" and "Death Beckons".
