Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Frederik Wiedmann
Label: Feda Music, BMI
Release Date: 07 July 2015

Composer Frederik Wiedmann releases his score for Spectrum, with all proceeds going to Autism Women's Network. The movie combines live action and animation to explore the inner sensory experience of autism. While autism is largely regarded as a social disorder, Spectrum reveals the underlying sensory differences that create an autistic perspective. Sensory issues create a world where vision, sound, touch and smell can be intense. The story is a series of character driven portraits beginning with Temple Grandin, the most well-known autistic adult in the world. Other characters include poet Tito Mukhopadhyay, artist Judy Endow, martial artist Nick Walker, and a group of young, energetic children. Rather than fearing autism, Spectrum seeks to understand it...

Frederik Wiedmann's score for Spectrum may be short (9 tracks - 23 min, 27 sec) but it's incredibly sweet. The album is made up of themes for some of the main characters as well as the different aspects of autism.

Of all the tracks here, 'Dancing with Movement' stood out as the most interesting and memorable.

I strongly urge you to buy this score, not just because Wiedmann is donating all proceeds to the Autism Women's Network, but because it's an impressive mini collection of themes that gets more intense the more you listen to it.
