Milan Records has released a soundtrack album for the documentary Ascension. The album features the film’s original music composed by Dan Deacon (TwixtRat Film, Well Groomed, All Light, Everywhere). The soundtrack is now available to stream/download on all major digital music services, including Amazon. Ascension directed by Jessica Kingdon explores the pursuit of wealth and the paradox of progress in modern China, and examines what living the so-called “Chinese Dream” looks like today. The movie, which recently was nominated for six Critics Choice Documentary Awards and is on the IDA short-list for Best Documentary, portrays capitalism in China across the levels of its operation, from the crudest mine to the most rarefied forms of leisure. The documentary, which premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, was released in select theaters last month and is now available to stream on Paramount+.
