In his debut film TARNATION, director Jonathan Caouette paired dazzling visual storytelling with an inspired mix of music from artists such as Low, Iron & Wine, Lisa Germano, Magnetic Fields, and Red House Painters. Tying it all together are original instrumental pieces written and performed by songwriter Max Avery Lichtenstein.
In October of 2004, after countless requests from eager listeners, Tin Drum Recordings made an MP3 of the theme song from the film available to visitors under the Creative Commons license, and the response was overwhelming... since then the song has racked up over 300,000 free downloads from this site.
The Tarnation theme song has subsequently been featured in several other feature films and major advertising campaigns (including spots for Impulse Body Spray in the UK, ONCE Rasca de Navidad in Spain and Three Mobile in Italy).
Feel free to download the song for yourself and share it with your friends. If you like it, consider purchasing the complete digital EP via one of our many online digital vendors worldwide - - - >
