The Illustrated Family Doctor

Severed Heads

The soundtrack to the 2004 Australian film comes with a bonus DVD, The Animated Family Doctor,in which Tom Ellard has provided hypnotic videos for about half of the tracks on his ambient electronic score for the film. I think the DVD is an improvement, as it takes what I liked about the film – the lovely static compositions of office space, the music – and removes most of what I disliked, which was the adolescent, sub-Fight Club angst about how Our Hero has a Boring Job.

As a bonus, the DVD includes the four albums of office ambience which used to be streamed from the Sevcom website under the title  Music Server, and a handful of sample tracks from recent Heads’ albums.
