The soundtrack to the groundbreaking film Life In A Day is released today, featuring highlights from Matthew Herbert’s original score, plus music from composer Harry Gregson-Williams. 

The film is composed entirely from footage supplied by YouTube users, shot on a single day. And when composing the soundtrack, Herbert similarly processed and incorporated thousands of sounds submitted by the site’s audience. Every single one of more than 2,000 submitted sounds was incorporated.

In addition Matthew also wrote much of orchestral score and the film’s main theme song, which was sung by Ellie Goulding, Baaba Maal and Matthew Herbert himself. 

The soundtrack is available from iTunes
