Record Makers is excited to announce the release the limited vinyl version of “Fire of Love”, the lavish soundtrack to the film of the same name composed by French electronic producer and AIR founder Nicolas Godin. The 15-track album is comprised of the score Godin contributed to the film – which just received the Outstanding Original Score Award at the recent Cinema Eyes Honors ceremony - as well as original music inspired by it. The album is available March 24th.

From National Geographic Documentary Films comes the extraordinary love story of intrepid French scientists Katia and Maurice Krafft, who died just as explosively as they lived — capturing the most spectacular imagery ever recorded of their greatest passion: volcanoes.
“When [Director] Sara Dosa and I talked for the first time about Fire of Love, we were wondering what kind of music would suit Katia and Maurice’s spirits the best. We focused on the DIY experimental method they used all their life as a film making process and I thought to myself: what if in their own lab, they would have a tiny room full of electronic instruments and oscillators. They would record the soundtracks of their films themselves with well-chosen faithful collaborators. One word popped up in my mind: Homemade. No expensive orchestra or pretentious percussion slams,” says Godin.

He continues, “Coming from the home studio recording world myself (as well as all the original members of the so called ‘French touch’ late nineties electronic music scene), it was easy to picture myself in Katia and Maurice’s lab, creating sounds, noises, and melodies with a bunch of antique keyboards and analog tape recorders. That’s how the Fire of Love soundtrack was born.”

The result of this musical work is a lush electronic krautrock score in the manner of Tangerine dream or Oneohtrix Point Never.
