“... an excellent score by Kimberly Henninger and Shawn Parke, result in a powerful, thoughtful and moving work of science-fiction that engages the head and the heart.” - Jonothan Hatfull - SciFi Now Magazine UK

“... their score is part and parcel of Embers’s particular ‘end of the world, ’ neither reveling in the destruction nor running away from it. Rife with familiarity, Embers’s music becomes an intrinsic piece of a humbling story, one of memory and its essential importance to everything we know to be true.” - David Klien - PopOptiq

“[The score creates] ...the vibe of a lucid dreamlike state as characters wander the wasteland in a search for purpose.... an incredibly realized atmosphere.” - Robert Kojder - Flickering Myth




When Kim Henninger and Shawn Parke were tapped by Writer/Director Claire Carré and Writer/Producer Charles Spano to score the indie Sci Fi film Embers, not a frame had been shot. With the screenplay, a mood reel and concepts such as memory, forgetting and disintegration to guide them, the duo immediately went to work.

They wandered the wet streets of Portland, Oregon recording the sounds of the city. Cars, rain, wind chimes, the sound of a piano pouring out of a neighbor’s home, all of these things represented the memories that would be broken, bent, distorted, destroyed and would ultimately become the thick organic bed for the film’s mostly orchestral score.

Kindling collects these building blocks that were recorded over the year and a half of Embers’ production into an album that stands on its own as a work of high concept experimental music.
