Kite Soundtrack by Paul Hepker (2014)
Get it: If you are looking for a soundtrack that has a very techno-sounding quality to it.
Don’t get it: If you want something that uses a more traditional orchestral style
Paul Hepker’s soundtrack to Kite, released by Lakeshore Records, is intriguing from the earliest notes. It sounds very modern straight from the beginning. Fairly early on, it is easy to tell that this soundtrack is not your model of a typical orchestral score to a film. Rather, it is an example of a newer style soundtrack. It’s like futuristic action movie music. It doesn’t really break from it’s unique style, so you would have to enjoy it in order to like the entire OST.
There are more shorter tracks than more longer ones here. It is somewhat bass-leaning and beat-focused. Although they are entirely different soundtracks, this could probably be used as the score for the 2010 film Tron: Legacy just fine.
In the end, it comes down to what you like. If you like a more technologically made, club-ready type score, then you’ll want to give this a listen. If you want something more traditional, then this is probably not it for you. Having said that, if you are wanting something like this, then you’re in luck because this is a very well done soundtrack in its category.
