The Bag Man – Official Soundtrack Preview

A few words from the music composers behind the film soundtrack:

“David Grovic, the director of the film, wanted a score that would support the mystery and offbeat color of the various characters in the film. We also decided, collectively, to create a sound palette that was out-of-the-box and somewhat akin to the film’s setting which was the swamplands of Louisiana”

Tony Morales

“We kept the instrumentation pretty bare bones. It is mainly acoustic bass, guitars, percussion and some electronics. Joshua Grange played lap steel guitar to create many of the moody atmospheric sounds heard in the score. The specific guitar he played is called a Frying Pan guitar, which is an antique instrument that was made by Rickenbacker in the 1930s. The tone of that specific guitar and the masterful way in which he played it is one of the keys to the sound of the film.”

Edward Rogers

The soundtrack of The Bag Man will be released on March 4, 2014.
