Crunch– Hutch Demouilpied- trumpet/flute. Sue Lynch- Saxophone/ Clarinet/ flute. Matt Hutchinson- Piano
They only played an excerpt on Radio 3 but it was a ‘moment’ to be on a listing with these film composers.
Limbo is in cinema’s in the UK today. New trailer featuring my score.
Also a Empire review mentions the score. ‘Hutch Demouilpied’s mournful score underlining the sheer state of it all.’
It’s not all mournful though…….!
Great to be on this list of ‘now playing’ and see other soundtracks available and also on Backlot Records.
Thanks to Mark Kermode for his support.

Thanks to Hanaa Moossavi’s review and appreciation of the score.
‘An immediate aspect of the film that strikes audiences is the emotionally compelling musical score in “Limbo”; it ushers the audience into feeling the exact emotions as the characters on-screen. Film score composer Hutch Demouilpied transcends the film’s emotional aspects. The song “Eh Fi Amal” by Fariouz plays near the film’s end and sings: “Even though flowers are filling the fields…to get back together is impossible.” Demouilpied plays with the hearts of the audience, adding this piece to hone in on the melancholia of how the narrative ends. A special aspect of Middle Eastern music — that the outro song perfectly exhibits — is the deep sense of longing conveyed through the tone of the artist; the violins and elongated, emotional versus evoke such a deep sense of sadness in every sentence that is able to reach every heart in the audience, no matter the viewer’s ability to translate the lyrics.’
Mark Kermode played tracks from my score of Limbo. Amazing support from Mark and he will feature more from Limbo before its UK release this July 2021. I will keep you posted.
Alongside some amazing composers……..
