Inconvenient truth: a global warning by Al Gore (DVD) Gore, Al

By: Gore, Al
Material type: TextTextPublisher: California Paramount 2006Description: CD (96 min.)Subject(s): Global warmingDDC classification: D000966 Summary: Most documentaries suffer from generic soundtracks or the most rudimentary of scores, often cut by the director's friend. But then most of them don't have Michael Brook as composer. The guitarist is best known for his world fusion work with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and other Real World artists and his own ambient fusion releases like RockPaperScissors and Hybrid. It's the latter side that's tapped for Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, his dire documentation of Earth's warming and the government's inability to tackle the problem. Those themes dominate the film, but Gore's treatise is surrounded by personal reflections and autobiographical side trips. It's in these segments that most of Brook's music is used. He manages to be pastoral, reflecting Gore's Tennessee farm roots; and atmospheric, underscoring Gore's emotional personal journey.
