Pairing his mastery of music with an ingenious edge, Ferry Corsten develops a mesmerizing soundtrack for David Gleeson’s film, Don’t Go!
It seems as if we are standing at the top of Ferry Corsten’s ultra-stylized creative evolution. He is an artist who has been driven to take the path less traveled, fueled by a passion for pushing his limits and inspired by a blossoming interest in musical storytelling. For Ferry, what could be seen as one of his biggest endeavors to date would materialize in the form of his debut film score. With director David Gleeson placing his faith in Ferry’s hands, the soundtrack for Don’t Go has arrived.
It all began in 2017 when Ferry Corsten spent rigorous hours alongside House Of Cards screenwriter D. Harrington Miller, in preparation for what would emerge as Blueprint, one of Ferry’s most risky yet incredibly thought-provoking albums to date. Since then, he has been bitten by the storyline bug, ready to take the next step and explore the world of cinema. With twenty years of experience and a knack for matching raw emotion with boundary-free musical detail, there was simply no better choice for the job when it came to scoring the 2018 mystery & suspense film Don’t Go.
“I have always been interested in soundscapes and using music to evoke emotional responses, so working with film is an area I have wanted to explore. I am grateful to have been able to work with David on my first soundtrack, and it is something I would like to expand on in the future.”
– Ferry Corsten
