Jakarta, IO – Exciting news for fans of old Indonesian music. Two songs titled ‘Kasih Suci’ and ‘Hari Yang Mulya’ sung by old Indonesian band Golden Wing became the original sountrack of Hollywood flick ‘The Creator’ directed by Gareth Edwards.
Golden Wing is a band from Palembang which was formed in 1969. At that time, it was quite popular. In fact, it was in the same league as other famous bands such as AKA, Rollies and God Bless.
According to Edward, both songs have melodies that are lilting and sad. The songs also become the background music for the scene where the main character, The Creator, finds the other side of the human bond with an artificial intelligence (AI) entity. The premise of this film highlights the conflict between the two camps which occurred due to a misunderstanding.
“Imagine you’re flipping through records in Indonesia and find a 70s band that’s like another version of The Doors. That’s the sound we’re looking for,” said Edwards, per posting from the X account @Empiremagazine.
The Creator has been showing in cinemas since Wednesday (27/9). It has a duration of 133 minutes. John David Washington is the main actor who plays Joshua, a United States military special forces officer who was given the task to kill The Creator or Nirmata. The Creator is a figure who developed AI civilization and is therefore considered dangerous.
The Creator film has four acts that tell the story in layers. Viewers will witness a number of exciting conflicts and slowly discover the reasons why these conflicts happen in the first place. This film is played by some of the best actors including Madeleine Yuna Voyles, Gemma Chan, Ken Watanabe, Sturgill Simpson, Allison Janney, Ralph Ineson, Marc Menchaca, and Veronica Ngo. It is produced by 20th Century Studios. (rr)
