Buy the original soundtrack of BEFORE YOU KNOW IT composed by acclaimed musician Jimmy LaValle
“The director PJ Raval and I had a conversation as the film was being edited about creating an original score inspired by each of the three characters in the film. I watched a rough cut, and instead of composing to picture, I created a collection of ambient sound beds for each character based on their story arcs in the film. In order to turn the soundtrack into a record, I re-envisioned the music of the film into more complete songs. I expanded upon some of melodies and ambient beds that appeared during interstitial moments in the film, some only 30 seconds, and developed them into more complete tracks. The characters’ lives and stories in “Before You Know It” are so compelling, inspiring, and deeply personal that composing music to accompany their journey in this film was effortless.
I’ve scored film soundtracks before, and my music as The Album Leaf has appeared in film and television, but this is the first time I’m releasing music under my name, Jimmy LaValle.”
