French-Canadian composer and pianist Jean-Michel Blais releases the soundtrack to Canadian director Xavier Dolan’s upcoming film release, Matthias & Maxime, on Arts & Crafts on October 25. The Montreal-based composer was chosen by the acclaimed actor and film-maker to write the music for the film, which received its world premiere on May 22 at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. There is a long love story between Cannes and Dolan has he is in fact the youngest director to ever receive the Jury Prize.

The music for the Matthias & Maxime Official Soundtrack was developed in close collaboration between Blais and Dolan in the studio, using techniques derived from improvisation, with the music of Franz Schubert serving as a point of inspiration. Unusually for a feature film, certain tracks were developed first, the scene was shot to the music, and then edited to fit it, rather than the other way around.
