Music + Picture // The North Face: Alex Honnold


The beautiful new short film from The North Face is simply awe inspiring (and scary at times). Visually, there's a lot to take in with all of the majestic and epic imagery leaving us feeling pretty small in the world. Musically, there is a lot of ground to cover, but first check this out and don't forget to breathe...

Matthew Morgan's beautiful composition "Sun Through The Clouds" ascends with the trajectory of the film with sparse and cinematic piano.  There are many moments where silence is an instrument creating space to take in the epic views.  The soundtrack embodies the inspiring and empowering narrative in this piece, paring together the rugged and classical. This collaboration of music and film creates a rustic ballet - gorgeous and imaginative.
