On The Road

Gustavo Santaolalla

After decades of false starts and stops, Jack Kerouac’s seminal 1957 cult novel finally makes its way to the screen in this 2012 adaptation from Brazilian director Walter Salles (Foreign Land, The Motorcycle Diaries) with an all-star cast featuring Kristin Stewart, Amy Adams, Tom Sturridge, Garrett Hedlund, Alice Braga, Kirsten Dunst, Sam Riley and Viggo Mortensen.

Tasked with providing Kerouac’s semi-autobiographical existential road trip an appropriate musical signature, Oscar-winning Argentine composer Gustavo Santaolalla (B
rokeback Mountain, Babel) opts for a freewheelingly eclectic, jazz-inspired score that emphasizes the free-spirited determination of the film’s characters as well as the oftentimes contradictory aimlessness of their journey. From the improvisational, percussive tenor of tracks like "Roman Candles "and "The Open Road " to the more traditional soft jazz quartet performance "Lovin’ It" to the fast jam of tracks like "That’s It," Santaolalla paints a musical portrait that perfectly captures the exhilaration of the 1950s experimental jazz explosion and underlines its timelessness with a brilliantly contemporary brush.
