SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- May 26, 2010 -- Nylon Studios’ award-winning composer Michael Yezerski recently completed the score for the feature length film, The Waiting City. Working from his studio in Sydney, Yezerski is known for creating diverse musical scores and compositions for feature films and advertising campaigns, alongside his work as an established world music composer.
The Waiting City (director Claire McCarthy, starring Radha Mitchell and Joel Edgerton) is the upcoming Australian feature film following the story of a young couple who travel to Calcutta in order to retrieve their newly adopted child -- only to find the arrangements are not complete once they arrive. The story unfolds to reveal a fragile, complicated marriage and reality as Westerners attempting to understand the labyrinthine city.
Spending several weeks in Calcutta, Yezerski worked and experimented with local musicians who provided musical rhythms and textures to which he applied his signature melodies. The resulting score is filled with rich sounds from unique local instruments.
Yezerski’s career highlights include composing for feature length films such as Elissa Down’s feature length film Black Balloon (2008) and Clayton Jacobson’s Kenny, to providing music for major advertising campaigns such as Snickers, Jeep and McDonalds. For Black Balloon he won the 2008 Australian Screen Music Award for Best Soundtrack Album and Best Original Song. His independent work includes working with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Australian Art Museum, Gondwana Voices and collaborating with composer and conductor, Richard Tognetti.
