Black Sunshine Frontman Matt Reardon Scores Film
"Working on the soundtrack of 'Mount St. Elias' was a bit of a dream come true and had some resolve for me personally, as my close friend Aaron Martin passed away on that mountain," says Black Sunshine frontman Matt Reardon. "Aaron actually taught me how to play guitar, so he would definitely be proud. When the opportunity came up I jumped at it. They flew me to Austria to work on the score and being a skier, I understood the risks they were dealing with and was able to draw from my own personal experiences. The whole process was totally natural."
Mount St. Elias is the spectacular story of skier Axel Naglich’s attempt to climb and then complete the longest ski descent ever from the peak of Alaska’s “Mount St. Elias”. For more information on the film including a trailer please visit www.mountstelias.com
