Guillaume Ravau, French filmmaker and composer, has unveiled the soundtrack to the first season of his adventure series HSB (Hors Sentiers Battus). Much like the series which sees Ravau traverse the most exotic points of the globe from the cushioned seat of a 4-wheeler, the soundtrack is hypnotic escapist fare. Imagine cool jazz impressarios like Dave Koz or even pop instrumentalist Kenny G venture on a camping trip… in the middle of Almeria. This is what it sounds like.
The melodies are light, upbeat and conservative piano compositions which see Ravau demonstrate his virtuosity in crafting an image visually and audibly. HSB is a feast for the senses.
The series itself is riddled with majestic images of all the bucket list places any traveler worth his or her weight in customs stamps would salivate over. It bursts with colors and wide sweeping angles that give the viewer an uncommon perspective on some equally uncommon destinations.
