About

Sintel is a short film score by Matthew Beardsworth, composed to the Blender short animated film (dir. Colin Levy) of the same name. The film tells the tragic story of a young girl setting out on a long journey to find her lost pet dragon; its vivid medieval Scandinavian setting and Spielberg-esque cinematography lends itself to a Romantic-style orchestral score in the grand Hollywood vein of Korngold, Steiner and Williams.

This concert suite relates Sintel’s story in purely musical terms, using key leitmotifs from the cues interwoven through the piece to express the characters' and situations. Sintel’s theme is yearning and tumultuous, the up-and-down contours mirroring the mountains she climbs and overcomes in her quest. The dragon’s theme is a soaring contour that works as a light lullaby in woodwinds, a glorious flying theme in strings, or a dark and terrifying battle theme in brass. An adventurous yet desperate melodic arc represents the journey, and a lamenting variation and reflective hymn close off the suite.
