The film "Liberty Bound" is Christine Rose's odyssey across the United States, asking:
- Are Americans losing their civil liberties?
- Why are America's friends now calling the U.S. a fascist empire?
- Are the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights in jeopardy?
The film score unites orchestral music, blues, jazz, pop, world music, and electronica in a quilted portrait of New York and the purple mountains in the post 9/11 era.
It swings between David Schell's ironic "Napalm Blues" and D.N.B. Pedergnana's tragic themes of terrorist attack. It also includes a haunting reconstruction of "America the Beautiful," amusing variations on "The Yellow Rose of Texas," and a bonus song--"We Will Adapt"-- which was inspired by the film (sung by Susan Hancock).
This music affirms America's ruptured psyche and asks, "Is the United States bound for liberty-- or does it just have liberty bound?"
