Product Description

Vivek Maddala

Perseverance Records is proud to announce the release of the score to the 2013 documentary, American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs.   Composed by up and coming composer Vivek Maddala, the documentary centers on Detroit social activist, Grace Lee Boggs.

Here is Vivek discussing his score: “The opportunity to compose the music score for AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY appealed to me partly due to the subject matter -- the ideas and evolution of the inimitable Grace Lee Boggs. I was also eager to collaborate with the film’s excellent team -- director Grace Lee, producers Caroline Libresco and Austin Wilkin, and editor Kim Roberts.  The film presented abundant opportunities for me freely to invent and fuse different musical forms.  Hence, we have impish, subversive melodies using chamber strings that yield to melancholy piano; hard post-industrial rock textures that complement subtle references to 50s jazz (a la Miles Davis and Bill Evans); and leitmotifs and harmonic vocabulary that run the gamut.  The music in the film mirrors, augments, and at times plays against the story being told.  Boisterous passages lead to quiet, thoughtful ones, and then back again.   Such is the life (and mind) of Grace Lee Boggs.” 

This score is very innovative; with great orchestrations and played with a lot of heart. 

This is a manufactured CDR on Demand, but you won't notice; it looks and plays exactly like a pressed CD.

  1. Great soundtrack!

    I love this CD. I put it on when I have time to think and dream; the pieces are evocative. Love the instrumentation, and the vocal numbers at the end are very interesting.
