If you’ve had a chance to watch Compassing, you know that the music plays a big part in setting the tone and keeping pace for the film. Cyrus has worked with Matt Adams and The Blank Tapes on film projects in the past, so when it came time to think about music for the feature, this was a natural choice.
As with any director, Cyrus picked all the songs for the film with only a few suggestions coming from the artist. To get a better understanding of where the songs came from, we asked Adams to break down the soundtrack. The result is a rare glimpse into the mind of a musician and his artistic process.
