Notes

All tracks by Shayne Carter unless otherwise stated

Following a “brilliant Auckland summer with me stuck in darkened rooms composing maudlin music to images of abducted girls crying in the woods” on behalf of Shayne Carter and production partner Nick Roughan, the pair have delivered a haunting set of 14 pieces of music to accompany what the Christchurch Press called "A fine addition to New Zealand cinema, this is a film that will linger in the forefront of your mind". Alongside the original score are “Smoke” and “Under The Light” from Dimmer; “If I Were You” by Straightjacket Fits; and from the 70’s, the New Zealand classic “I Need Your Love” by Golden Harvest.

“The initial script I was sent for “For Good” had a different ending from the final film - the flashback where the two girls are sitting on their show ponies and Tracey turns to Lisa and says - supposedly in reference to not knocking down any fences - "I guess I was just lucky". That killed me and seemed so sad that I sat down immediately and wrote “Tracey’s Theme”. That set the precedent for the way the music was approached throughout the film. It had to be an immediate gut response to what was on the screen rather than guessing or contriving some 'emotion'. There were no rewrites or going overs. I figured the music had to be organic and close to the earth, very much like
the story - with spooky, minimal themes that sunk into the action.” – Shayne Carter, February 2004 (from Capital Recordings website)
