Brett A. Hart's Bone Dry is a two-character thriller set against a blistering and desolate desert landscape. Eddie (Luke Gross) finds himself being forced at gunpoint by an unseen assailant on a dark and brutal journey through the harsh terrain of the Mojave. His nemesis is Jimmy (Lance Henriksen), a man with an aberrant agenda. Armed with a rifle, scope, walkie-talkies and a truck, Jimmy has organized a series of ambushes and mantraps designed to push Eddie to the limits of his humanity. Bone Dry is inspired by the Spielberg classic Duel, Cooper and Shoedesack's The Most Dangerous Game, and even the works of Rod Sterling.
"When finally choosing my debut film, I picked a thriller that would accommodate an approach similar to Hitchcock and Herrmann vehicles. It is a picture of, to use Hitchcock's phrase, 'pure cinema': set pieces woven together with tremendous moments of music and suspenseful imagery; storytelling without a great deal of dialog; in other words, a visual opus," says Hart.
When composer Scott Glasgow accepted the assignment to score Bone Dry, he was immediately struck by the opportunity to do something unique. For the primary color of the score, he chose to record and process the sounds of a plucked cactus. As Glasgow comments in his notes, "In this score, you will find a very plucky, delayed arpeggio sort of sound representing the desert, but you will also hear many scrapes, brushes, thunks, and other cactus manipulations throughout. I even created a whole keyboard sample 'tuned' and mapped so I could play it like a piano." A highlight of the score is the final 15 minutes performed by the FILMharmonic Orchestra of Prague consisting of 50 strings. "Epiphany," "Contrition," and "Redemption" form a three-movement symphony of sorts, bringing the score to a powerful, dramatic close. This new release features over 70 minutes of Scott Glasgow's score.
