Two Rivers features an original music score composed &
performed by multi-instrumentalist Kurt Tietz.
Studios, in Cape Girardieu, Missouri (30 miles north
of Cairo, IL) Tietz has created a compelling, lyrical and
atmospheric score; utilizing cello, violin, double-bass,
acoustic/slide guitar, piano, percussion and harmonica.
Combining atonal sounds and more pronounced melodies, Tietz
composed the score while viewing edited scenes from the
film, as well as responding to specific suggestions or thematic
ideas from the film-makers.
Tietz also performs with southern Illinois bluegrass band
Old Santa Fe.
