Episode 215: Ian Bonhôte & Peter Ettedgui On The Music of Rising Phoenix & McQueen

Oct 09, 2020, 06:26 PM

Edith's latest guests on Soundtracking are a couple of documentary makers whose work she absolutely loves.

She first met Ian Bonhôte & Peter Ettedgui following the release of their debut feature, McQueen, based on the life of British fashion designer, Lee Alexander McQueen. Now Ian and Peter have turned their attentions to paralympians with Rising Phoenix, which is streaming on Netflix now.

Scored by our old friend Daniel Pemberton, Rising Phoenix plays like a superhero movie, a device that really hits the mark. 

The three of them also discuss Michael Nyman, who allowed Ian and Peter to use his music for McQueen.
