Soundtracking with Edith Bowman
Episode 116: David Mackenzie On The Music Of Outlaw King (Contains Spoilers)
Over 100 episodes have passed since writer / director David Mackenzie first joined us on Soundtracking.
On that occasion, we talked about his critically acclaimed thriller, Hell Or High Water, and much of his back catalogue.
He returns to discuss Outlaw King, a passion project about Robert The Bruce which is available to watch now on Netflix.
As well as a score by Tony Doogan (on which David is credited), Outlaw King features plenty of traditional Celtic and ecclesiastical music - which was sourced by music supervisor Jim Sutherland.
You'll hear plenty of both throughout this episode.
We should point out that if you don't know the story of Robert The Bruce, David goes into it at length during this conversation, which obviously provides much of the narrative content for his movie.
