Music by Tomáš Vtípil
« Tomáš Vtípil is a Czech composer and performer who moves freely between alternative rock, electronic, contemporary music and performance art. His score for White Paradise is inspired by the tradition of live music accompaniment to silent movies and combines contemporary electronics, improvisation on piano, violin and no-input mixing which accentuates the operetta-like characters of this melodrama as well as the darker tones of its storytelling. » (Czech Centres London)
