"Soleilmoon Recordings is proud to release Simon Fisher Turner's epic new soundtrack to Herbert Ponting's silent film The Great White Silence. The film, shot in 1911, is a documentary on Captain Robert F. Scott and his team's doomed attempt to be the first men to reach the South Pole. After nearly two decades of meticulous restoration work the British Film Institute released the film to rave reviews in the British press on May 20, 2011. The film is soon to be issued on DVD and Blu-ray disc in England, and the soundtrack is being released by Soleilmoon. The music consists of two CDs, presented in high-touch packaging, hand printed on premium quality papers. Like every Soleilmoon project, the care and devotion given to this release is second to none, and the quality and craftsman ship are reflected throughout. Simon Fisher Turner has been an actor, a teen idol, a member of the Portsmouth Sinfonia Orchestra, The The, Deux Filles and The King of Luxembourg. He recorded several soundtracks for Derek Jarman and David Lynch, and has recently worked with sculptor Alyson Shotz, music video director Jonathan Glazer and Warp recording artist Mira Calyx."
