Bryce Dessner – “Imagining Buffalo”

The National’s Bryce Dessner had a hand in the score for the upcoming film The Revenant (which, no, does not have a scene where Leonardo DiCaprio is raped by a bear). He’s shared one of his contributions, “Imagining Buffalo,” today, which was performed by conductor Andre de Ridder and s t a r g a z e. The rest of the score was written by Alva Noto and Ryichi Sakamoto. Listen to the Dessner track via Pitchfork below.

Here’s a trailer for the film:

The Revenant is in select theaters on Christmas, and will see a wide release on 1/8. The soundtrack will be released digitally on Christmas Day.
