When the Sundance Film Festival arrives next week in Utah, two films scheduled to be screened at the event will be of particular interest for music fans, given the writer of each film's score.
As Pitchfork reports (via Indiewire), Ben Gibbard has contributed the score for "Laggies," a dark comedy featuring Keira Knightley and Chloe Moretz. He's joined by Adam Horovitz, aka Ad-Rock, who scored basketball flick No-No: A Dockumentary, the story of Pittsburgh pitcher Dock Ellis, who supposedly threw a perfect game in 1970 while on acid.
Gibbard, frontman of Death Cab for Cutie and the Postal Service, first made a foray into the film score world with 2006's Kurt Cobain: About a Son.
Meanwhile, Horovitz, a member of Beastie Boys, previously lent his skills to the Beasties' 2006 concert doc Awesome; I F---in' Shot That! as well as upcoming film The Truth About Lies.
The Sundance Film Festival will be held Jan. 16-26 in Park City, Utah.
