Film score for motion picture 'Zeytin Zamani'

Zeytin Zamani Zeytin Zamani

Who can say where and how we'll fall in love? And so young Zeytin could never have possibly dreamed that her true love would be, of all people, a foreigner she meets under adverse circumstances, who doesn't speak her language, and who seems even poorer than she already is.

In the German-Turkish motion picture "Zeytin Zamani" director Mehmet Çoban tells the remarkable story of Zeytin and her search for true love.

Throughout the entire movie, the central pulse of the score is provided by the piano. In addition to strings, other orchestral instruments and electronic elements, woodwinds also play an important role. Especially the Turkish ney and duduk, which, along with the flute, were all recorded by Sandro Friedrich, a specialist in ethnic wind instruments.


The film score wins at 10th Park City Film Music Festival in Utah, USA the „Silver Medal / Director's Choice“ in the Category „Best Impact of Music for a Narrative Feature Film".
