Nitin Sawhney, one of the most versatile and sought after composer s and producers alive today, has composed an original soundtrack to accompany the 1929 silent film, "A Throw of Dice" by acclaimed German director Franz Osten. Describing the story of a craps game between two Indian kings for the hand of a poor beauty, the film features thousands of extras and exotic animals, combining the spectacle of a Cecil B. DeMille biblical epic with an early Bollywood sensibility. The soundtrack will be performed by the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra (QPO) along with Nitin Sawhney and his key musicians.
