Product Notes

What are the odds? And thus beings The Quantum Suicide of Sophie Miller, which tells the story of Dr. Sophie Miller, a neurotic and introverted physics professor who, consumed by repressed guilt and afflicted with a self-imposed incapacity to assign meaning to interpersonal relationships, is compelled to multiple suicide attempts in pursuit of an absurdly rational scientific quest: to either prove by her life or disprove by her death a concurrently fantastic and infinitely alluring theory--quantum immortality. On the surface, quantum immortality is merely the theoretical byproduct of a mathematical oddity of particle physics, but for Sophie and others who understand it's philosophical implications, it calls into question our perception of time, mortality, and our very notion of reality. For Sophie, her quest is greater than just a dispassionate pursuit, but rather the inevitable result of a long chain of causality, a potential vindication of her own stubborn rationality, and an apology to herself and to her family for what she believes and what she could not bring herself to believe. Far more than just a science-fiction drama, The Quantum Suicide of Sophie Miller is the immensely intimate psychological portrait of a character pushed to the brink by incomprehensible family tragedy, an examination of the conflation of science, philosophy, and religion, and a philosophical treatise on our belief in the afterlife and how it informs the relationships we build in our own lives and the choices it compels us to make. Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Music Composed, Orchestrated, Programmed, and Mixed by Kyle Ringgenberg Creating the soundtrack for The Quantum Suicide of Sophie Miller has been a uniquely challenging experience. As our protagonist explains, true randomness does not exist beyond the quantum world; the musical challenge was to compose a score that reiterates this concept. The approach was twofold: draw heavily on musical references, and utilize character-centric themes. Nearly every piece is built upon a specific genre, inspiration, or concept. This is generally done via chord progressions, instrumentations, and/or melodic intervals. The most obvious example is the diegetic use of Ave Maria in Hamlet. Elsewhere you'll find remnants of and allusions to Buddhist chant, It Is Well With My Soul, the circle of 4ths/5ths, and many more. By drawing on traditional sacred music and various mathematical patterns, the soundtrack embodies the themes of religion and science. In addition to every track drawing on carefully chosen thematic material, each is also tightly correlated with a given character (or pseudo-character). The actual score heard while viewing the film is an amalgamation of these various tracks: combined, intercut, and overlaid to reinforce the actions and intentions of the players in any given scene. The soundtrack before you is unique in that it's not a simple copy-and-paste of the film's score; instead, it's a collection of the major themes that comprise the film's music. Every flourish you hear on this album appears in the film; likewise, nearly every note in the film is recorded on this collection. However, these flourishes and notes will not align; what you'll hear on this album is the original per-character source material, from which the film score is derived. It's been a real pleasure to again collaborate with RiverBend Films; I hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as I've enjoyed creating it!
