For scoring The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane, director Nicholas Gessner relied on Christian Gaubert, a musician renowned for the quality of his work as an arranger in the field of variety shows, and notably as an orchestrator for Francis Lai, but whose talent as a film composer has seldom been exploited. Here Gaubert applies a great technical expertise to fresh ideas, although his style remains dependent on his association with Lai.
The score features alternately and sometimes simultaneously, acoustic and synthetic sounds. On one hand, a formation of strings with solo cello and piano creates an intimate atmosphere, full of gentleness and melancholy; on the other, electronic instruments are used for dramatic scenes. Even in the most romantic parts with violins and piano, Gaubert sometimes uses an electric organ to hold the melody, a combination that is often found in Francis Lai's compositions of the 1970s.
This release is a limited edition of 500 copies.
