“Silent Running” (Douglas Trumbull, 1972) is a movie that takes place in a not-so-distant future, at a time when all plant and wild life on Earth have been decimated. Some have been preserved and are currently in space, in a fleet of orbiting greenhouses. Freeman Lowell (Bruce Dern) is the main character, one of four space forest rangers aboard the Valley Forge, one of the 2,000 metre-long green house freighters. He is passionately dedicated to preserving the orbiting forests and their natural inhabitants, and eventual returning them to Earth for reforestation of his now-barren planet… more so than his crewmates, whose main priority seems to be returning to Earth after their one-year deployment to space.
The conflict comes when Lowell and his crew are ordered to destroy the orbiting greenhouses and redeploy the freighters to commercial service. Lowell decides to disobey orders and save the forests he has worked so hard to preserve.
“Music For Silent Running” is the result of a live soundtrack project I am Dive embarked in 2015, when Jaume I University and Born! Music (Castellón, Spain) invited them to play at Cinemascore Festival, an event where some selected bands are invited to play imaginary soundtracks to some selected movies. “Music For Silent Running” is the original imaginary score they came up with.
