Her Majesty’s Ship OST by Straw Man Army — STUCKSOUND001

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for the time-bending experimental feature-length film, Her Majesty’s Ship (2019).

Based on Charles Darwin’s The Voyage of the Beagle (1831—1836), HMS is the modern classic of historical filmmaking that, sadly, few have seen in its intended form. Suppressed by the studio and riddled with production issues, much of the film fell victim to the cutting-room floor, resulting in a major commercial flop upon its theatrical release. Part biopic, part colonial history veiled in a time-travel adventure narrative, HMS tells the story of a young Darwin’s journey through South America and the crisis of scale presented by his findings—a crisis that will throw doubt on the origin of humanity itself…

Straw Man Army’s ambitious soundtrack, presented here for the first time, captures the freewheeling energy of the film and its attitude of exploration via a wide range of samples, found sounds, and themed arrangements—all resulting in a strange work of historical fiction in its own right. Her Majesty’’s Ship OST comes packaged with comprehensive shot-list transcriptions and storyboard drawings from the original film production, and includes an introductory essay on this complex film as published in Film Comment Magazine for the occasion of this release on Stucco Soundtracks.

“The film, like [HMS Beagle] itself, sets out towards a crossroads on the oceans where history itself commingles with the present and the future, to stare blankly at the sheer force of creation that proliferates the globe and to mourn an adventure which never really took place—namely, the blossoming of a world without industry, without imperialism and its prison colonies and its violence; a world devoid of clocks and timestamps and folders stuffed with nameless files” — Film Comment Magazine
