Ascension (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Music By Dan Deacon

Now streaming on Paramount Plus, Jessica Kingdon’s absorbingly cinematic documentary Ascension examines the paradoxical relationship between the contemporary “Chinese Dream” and notions of labor, consumerism and wealth in the People’s Republic of China.

Composer Dan Deacon drew upon a sizable library of field recordings from the film’s various shooting locations across China, interweaving the textural sounds of cryptocurrency mines, sex-doll factories, indoor malls and more into his score.  

Blending a background in experimental composition with a love for pop culture and a penchant for absurdism, Dan Deacon has gained an enthusiastic following and critical acclaim for his highly energetic performances and elaborate recordings.
