This month’s film score from Adam Young is based on “Project Excelsior,” a series of parachute tests made in 1959-60 by Captain Joe Kittenger. Basically, he went up into the stratosphere in helium balloons and then jumped out to see if parachutes would work that high.
Now, I don’t know about you, but just reading about that gives me an attack of the collywobbles. The edges of my vision are blurring, and my head feels too big. This girl doesn’t even like jumping off of logs on the beach. For Adam Young, on the other hand, it seems like the ultimate daydream. To each their own.
However you see it, this is a lovely upbeat soundtrack for writing happy adventures.
