Bounce | Mychael Danna
When an advertising executive innocently swaps tickets with another traveler who ends up dying in a crash, it sets in motion a series of events whereby the executive winds up unexpectedly falling in love with the deceased man’s widow. Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow star in this 2000 drama from writer/director Don Roos’ (The Opposite of Sex).
Enjoining an unorthodox but effective mix of traditional orchestral, light funk and soft jazz arrangements, Oscar-winning Canadian Composer Mychael Danna (Life of Pi) helps fuel Bounce with a vibrant evocation of the varied emotional trajectories of the film’s characters. Gentle strings underline repressed emotions in tracks like “Bed Time,” “Moving Day,” “So Brave” and “Deception” while rhythmic funk-intoned tracks like “Boarding Pass” and “Hangover” evoke outward recklessness. Elsewhere, more specific instrumentation is employed to emotionally accent particular orchestrations: a melancholic piano in “Crash”; exotic use of woodwinds in “Nice to Meet You,” “Testimony” and “You’re Excused” and guitar-inflected soft-jazz in “Now I Am,” “Seven Steps,” “Kiss” and “Can We Try.”
