Cindertalk contributes soundtrack to the Bono/Eugene Peterson short film

Multi-instrumentalist Jonny Rodgers, who splits his time between Eugene, Oregeon on the west coast and Brooklyn and New Haven on the east, has made music for a long time with an array of collaborators that includes Son Lux and My Brightest Diamond. His current solo project, Cindertalk, incorporates tuned wineglasses to achieve a tactile, organic tone that blends perfectly with his electronic and acoustic compositions, and director Nathan Clarke tapped him to provide the music for the much-acclaimed new short film The Psalms. The film, which you can view in its entirety on YouTube, documents a wonderful conversation between U2's Bono and theologian/author Eugene Peterson that ranges in focus from the place of the Psalter in the life of the church to art's integral role in relating to our Creator. At 20 minutes, the film is quite brief, and you can hear most of Cindertalk's soundtrack as you watch the film, but Rodgers' work makes for a good focus listen as well, with ambient swells reminiscent of Brian Eno and The Album Leaf and minimalist percussion provided by New Haven's The Soldier Story. Hear the the title song below, and if your curiosity is piqued then be sure to check out Makers & Mystics interview with Rodgers about the the creative process behind the soundtrack, as well.
