Roman Molino Dunn Scores Hit Thai-American Sci-Fi Rom-Com AI LOVE YOU
Mirrortone has released the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Netflix’s newly released Thai-American romantic comedy sci-fi film AI LOVE YOU, scored by Roman Molino Dunn a.k.a. Electropoint (SNAKEHEAD, HURACÁN, RED ROCKET). The 35-track album is packed with retro-futuristic textures, driving 80s drums and arpeggios, and heartfelt hybrid string melodies. Roman tackled scoring the futuristic rom-com before English subtitles were added, proving that the narrative and acting performances transcended the language, which allowed him to effortlessly tap into the love story unfolding onscreen.
AI LOVE YOU is a modern love story set in the near future, where an AI building is powered by human feelings. Due to a software glitch, it falls in love with a real girl, escapes the building into the body of a real man, and tries to win her affections. The film stars and reunites two of the biggest Thai actors: Baifern Pimchanok (SUDDENLY IT’S MAGIC, FRIEND ZONE) and Mario Maurer (BANGKOK ASSASSINS, PEE MAK), who first starred alongside one another over a decade ago in the fan-favorite 2010 rom-com, FIRST LOVE.
Roman Molino Dunn says, “AI LOVE YOU is unlike any film I have ever scored, not just because it is a unique genre – sci-fi rom-com – and a highly anticipated screen reunion for the two stars, but also because it’s a film about how emotions, particularly love, define what being human means.
“The biggest musical goal was to portray love and humanity using largely a synth palette. I was looking for organic sounds in synthesizers, essentially digging as deep as I could within electronics to find the human emotion. In assembling the sonic landscape of the film, we zeroed in on the lush synthwave sounds of the 80s to hark back to the nostalgic feeling of first love portrayed in the rom-coms of that era. I absolutely love mixing orchestral composition and electronic music production to reflect the subtleties of the human condition in the modern world – and it was a joy to do that for such a warm and fun film,” says Molino Dunn.
The soundtrack’s digital release arrives today, in conjunction with the film’s highly anticipated streaming release on Netflix US and ASIA. Stream or purchase the soundtrack from these links.
