Beyond The Divide (Film Soundtrack)

by Chris Koza

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    In the spirit of Brad Barr, Explosions in the Sky, Helios, and other pop-instrumentalists, the Beyond The Divide Film Soundtrack album is a delightful listen either under intense headphones scrutiny or as background textures drifting throughout the day. But I would be all the more grateful if you would have a listen and decide for yourself.

    The album is packaged in a full-color matte-finish eco-wallet, incorporating photography from the film and lyrics. The design elements can be seen below. Full artwork will be added once the albums arrive from the manufacturer.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Beyond The Divide (Film Soundtrack) via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Beyond The Divide is a documentary film directed and produced by Jan Selby. Chris Koza composed the original score for the film, which was edited by Bill Kersey. The film premiered at DocUtah and is continuing to elicit powerful emotional responses from viewers all over the world.

The music begins with simple meditative guitar melodies and rhythms and slowly blossoms through a hybrid of woodsy and synthetic textures.

The title track on the album is the only song with vocals, where Koza channels his best mellow-mountaintop voice to carefully drift among the crags and crevices of a complicated and revealing facade.

Track Name: Beyond The Divide
way up there you can see it
standing in the mountain air
looking down on everywhere
dividing a town in two

and somewhere on the road
less traveled where we met
I saw something in you
despite the differences

beyond the divide
we’re the same kind

I stumbled through the missteps
searching for a better way
everyone has something they need to say
and the view gets pretty grey

I thought I’d never see them
the way they must have seen themselves
waiting near an empty well
ringing like a broken bell

and I’ve been waiting
for this moment to arrive
to see the enemy
and who they are inside
slowly to realize
that through these wretched miles
we meet together
in the fog of denial

beyond the divide
we’re the same kind
beyond the divide
we’re the same kind
