Star-Studded Soundtrack to Film About Two Men with Autism. Only 500 first pressings available. We do not know if they will re-press. We'd recommend you not take a chance, and grab your copy now.
McIntosh Laboratory, a global leader in home entertainment systems that has defined the highest quality in sound reproduction for more than 60 years, is proud to help support autism awareness by collaborating with songwriter/producer J. Ralph on the release of his expansive Wretches & Jabberers Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The April release of the soundtrack is timed to coincide with National Autism Awareness Month, and a portion of all proceeds will benefit the Autism Society of America and the Wretches & Jabberers Fund at the Institute on Communication and Inclusion at Syracuse University.
The soundtrack includes artists J. Ralph, Norah Jones, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Vashti Bunyan, Bob Weir, Devendra Banhart, Judy Collins, Stephen Stills, Scarlett Johansson, Bonnie Bramlett, Nic Jones and others. We did say star-studded, right?
"To me, the story is about finding a voice for those who've suffered so long without one of their own," says J. Ralph, referencing the inspiration for the album's 20 songs, borne from the namesake film by Academy Award winning director Garardine Wurzburg. Her feature-length documentary Wretches & Jabberers, chronicles the global journey of two men with autism, Larry Bissonnette and Tracy Thresher, who set out to demystify their disability and reveal its intense isolation, ultimately demonstrating that "Autism is not abnormality of the brain as much as abnormality of experience," per Bissonnette.
