Soundtrack Effects in To Live and Die in L.A.

by criticalhit009

I mentioned in my previous write up of To Live and Die in L.A. that this movie keeps me thinking. While listening to the soundtrack today (it can make for great study music), I was struck with the eerie, descending, synthetic voices on tracks such as “Every Big City” and what they signify. They not only reflect the moral fall of Chance and his partner, but their ethereal sound also alludes to L.A., the city of angels, and its corruption as well.
