Veteran beatmaker Caural has scored a new film exploring the intersection of the LGBTQ and hip-hop communities.
The film, titled Word Is Bond, is the debut film by writer and director Alex Mastoon, and is an evocative, music-driven short that "unveils the struggle shared by so many in the LGBTQ community afraid to be themselves: a reality largely ignored—especially in the rap world." Caural's score for the film is an exploration of the musical vignettes that bring its characters to life, and returns to the beat-driven style he has honed across releases on Chocolate Industries, and Mush, among others.
Word Is Bond had its world premiere at Outfest Fusion in Los Angeles this month. You can stream the official trailer below, along with the first single from the score, which can be pre-ordered here.
