Sumthing Else Music Works: "ECHOES OF THE FIRST DREAMER: THE MUSICAL PREQUEL TO GOLEM" Music by Marty O'Donnell


Sumthing Else Music Works, the premier record label dedicated to releasing video game soundtracks, and independent game studio Highwire Games, proudly present the vinyl edition of "Echoes of the First Dreamer: The Musical Prequel To Golem," the new visionary album from celebrated Halo and Destiny composer Marty O'Donnell. The LP is released on black vinyl and presented in a deluxe gate-fold package. The album is also available on physical CD as well as digital and streaming outlets worldwide through Sumthing Else Music Works www.sumthing.com.

Written for piano and orchestra, "Echoes of the First Dreamer: The Musical Prequel To Golem" is not the soundtrack to Highwire's forthcoming exclusive PlayStation VR game Golem - it is a musical prequel; composed, arranged and recorded as an independent work that introduces audiences to the world and themes of Golem.

"For a composer, a prequel album is an interesting challenge because, unlike a traditional soundtrack, it cannot lean on the listener's memories and experiences from the game. It needs to stand alone and have its own independent emotional journey. At the same time, it must relate to Golem's tone and world.

For example, one of the first environments that we built for the game was a rustic home, filled with hand-made furniture and colorful blankets. Inside was such a cozy bedroom, it made me think of a mother, singing her child back to sleep. I remembered a lullaby I wrote many years ago after the birth of my first daughter. I found a copy of the original and developed it for the announcement trailer. Although it's a simple melody, it showed potential to evoke complex emotions, and eventually became the key theme for this suite of music.

Lakeshore Records: "REVOLT" by Bear McCreary


Lakeshore Records and Sparks & Shadows will release the REVOLT - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK digitally on October 13, 2017. The album features the original score by Emmy® Award-Winning Composer Bear McCreary (REBEL IN THE RYE, 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE).

Set in the war-ravaged African countryside, an American soldier (Lee Pace) and a French foreign aid worker (Bérénice Marlohe) team up to survive the alien onslaught. As they journey through the battlefield in search of refuge, their bond will be tested when the soldier discovers his true identity.

“From day one, Bear and I agreed that our original scifi movie needed a signature sound.  A score that would balance a sinister alien presence with the power of our will to fight back,” said writer/director Joe Miale.  “Bear gives our story a distinct voice, one that can waver, whimper or scream. A single solo instrument sails with uncertainty over a relentless rhythm— man against machine. Cue after cue, Bear weaves the story’s dynamics into the music itself; a cherished collaboration that still leaves me wonderstruck."

McCreary is known for his out-of-the-box techniques to create the perfect sonic palette for the score.  His recent projects have featured unusual instruments (like the hurdy gurdy, Blaster Beam, and bagpipes) and sampled sounds (including manipulated versions of his three year-old daughter’s voice, a typewriter, and even an MRI machine). "When I saw the staggeringly scary robotic drones stampede towards Lee Pace in Joe Miale's visceral sci-fi film REVOLT, I knew the score needed to be mechanical, pulsing and sonically distinct from anything I'd ever done,” said McCreary.  To achieve the perfect backdrop he “assembled an ‘orchestra’ of floppy disc drives, and worked with brilliant sound designer Jonathan Snipes, to get them to create sustained notes I could use in the score. Their chirping, guttural voices permeate the music, giving these killer robots a sense of devious human expression."

Back Lot Music: "HAPPY DEATH DAY" by Bear McCreary


Back Lot Music announces the release of the HAPPY DEATH DAY soundtrack, featuring music by Bear McCreary (Rebel in the Rye, 10 Cloverfield Lane) digitally on October 13 and on CD on October 20, 2017. 

Blumhouse (Split, Get Out, Whiplash) produces an original and inventive rewinding thriller in HAPPY DEATH DAY, in which a college student (Jessica Rothe, La La Land) relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity. HAPPY DEATH DAY is directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) and written by Scott Lobdell.

“When I first saw Happy Death Day, I was immediately struck by the film’s perfect balance of horror and dark comedy,” said McCreary. “The main character, Tree, hilariously captures a millennial spirit the horror is genuinely terrifying, and the comedy pitch perfect. The film is a goldmine for musical inspiration!”

In the thriller, the killer’s identity is hidden behind a baby-face mask.  McCreary had to look no further than to his three-year old daughter for inspiration in creating the score. “Christopher Landon and I decided to give this voiceless character a voice in the score,” McCreary explained.

Bear collected recordings of his daughter that he used throughout. “These sounds of her giggling and whispers were digitally mangled and distorted, until they became terrifying vocal textures, with menacing bass, crackling breathy overtones. One baby whimper in particular became the theme for the killer, wailing like a banshee over the score. I combined the baby voice with a full orchestra, and the end result truly terrified me. I am hopeful it will have the same effect on the audience.”

Lakeshore Records: "JIGSAW" Music by Charlie Clouser


Lakeshore Records will release the JIGSAW - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on October 27, 2017. The album features the original music by Charlie Clouser (SAW, TVs WAYWARD PINES).

“For JIGSAW I actually started working on the score by concentrating on the end of the film, because there would need to be two thematic cues that came before the obligatory re-interpretation of ‘Hello Zepp,’” described Clouser, the composer of the previous seven films in the SAW franchise. “Each film has its own musical vocabulary that is grafted onto the established tonal framework, and there are certain chord progressions, subtle melodies, and trademark sounds that helped to give that sense of continuity across the whole franchise.”

This October 27, Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures proudly present JIGSAW! After a series of murders bearing all the markings of the Jigsaw killer, law enforcement find themselves chasing the ghost of a man dead for over a decade and embroiled in a new game that’s only just begun. Is John Kramer back from the dead to remind the world to be grateful for the gift of life? Or is this a trap set by a killer with designs of their own?

Lakeshore Records: "WONDERSTRUCK" Music by Carter Burwell


Lakeshore Records will release the WONDERSTRUCK - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally October 20th and on CD/LP later this year.  Simultaneously second version of the album, containing three bonus tracks, is also being released as an Amazon Exclusive Special Edition.  Both releases feature original music by Carter Burwell (CAROL, FARGO).

Based on Brian Selznick’s critically acclaimed novel, in WONDERSTRUCK Ben and Rose are children from two different eras who secretly wish their lives were different. Ben longs for the father he has never known, while Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his home and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out on quests to find what they are missing that unfold with mesmerizing symmetry. 

“The script specifies that Rose’s segment of the film would be silent because her character is deaf, so music was going to play a large role,” said Burwell. “Because of the lack of dialogue and the lack of sound effects in Rose’s section, we presented it as a silent film, with wall-to-wall music.  I don’t believe there’s ever a moment where we actually go completely silent. That was a new challenge for me.”

Part of the film is set in New York City.  “I’m a New Yorker myself, so I’d love to think that the city affected this score, particularly since it is such a big part of the movie,” Burwell described. “Rose right from the beginning has her musical theme and Ben has his.  Initially, we didn’t try to make those instruments specific to the period of time in which they’re living. They live 50 years apart, one in 1927 one in 1977. But in the end it settled into something like that where Ben’s world was more driven by guitars and synthesizers, and Rose’s world was more driven by acoustical instruments.”

Lakeshore Records: "THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES (NEW AND SELECTED)" Music by Randy Newman


Lakeshore Records will release THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES (NEW AND SELECTED) - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on October 13, 2017. The album features original music by multiple Grammy®, Emmy®, and Academy Award® winner Randy Newman (THE NATURAL, TOY STORY).  The all-piano score is also performed by Newman.

The veteran film composer did something completely different for THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES (NEW AND SELECTED – Newman crafted a score utilizing only the piano.  “After I saw the movie I wrote and recorded a little piece so that Noah [Baumbach, writer/director] could hear something that I thought might work for the picture,” Newman described.  “He liked it and he decided that solo piano would be an effective way to score his picture.”

From writer/director Noah Baumbach, THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES (NEW AND SELECTED) is the emotional, and comic inter-generational tale of adult siblings (Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel) contending with the long shadow their strong-willed father (Dustin Hoffman) has cast over their lives. With an original screenplay by Baumbach, the film also stars Emma Thompson, Grace Van Patten, Adam Driver, Candice Bergen, Judd Hirsch, and Rebecca Miller. The film was produced by Scott Rudin, Baumbach, Lila Yacoub, and Eli Bush.  It will be released in theaters and on Netflix on October 13, 2017.

Step right up to see the oddities and marvels of The Blackstone Family Circus and Traveling Wonder Show! Gasp at pit wasps the size of a man’s forearm. Beware the pumpkin-headed corn stalker, lest it plant its roots in you!

Annie Pearl is the keeper of oddities, the mistress of monsters. Her unique collection of creatures is one of the circus’s star attractions, drawing wide-eyed crowds at every small frontier town they visit. But Annie is also a woman running from her past . . . and the mother of a mute young daughter, Adeline, whom she will do anything to protect.

Hoping to fill its coffers before winter sets in, the circus steers its wagons to The Clearing, a remote community deep in the Oregon wilderness, surrounded by an ominous dark wood. Word is that a traveling show can turn a tidy profit at The Clearing, but there are whispers, too, of unexplained disappearances that afflict one out of every four shows that pass through the town.

The Clearing has it secrets, and so does Annie. And it may take everything she has to save her daughter—and the circus—from both.

A gripping tale of the Weird West, set on the haunted frontier of DEADLANDS, the award-winning game from Pinnacle Entertainment Group.

Golden Joystick Awards Nominated "Project CARS 2" Music composed by Stephen Baysted, performed by London Metropolitan Orchestra and Mezzo Soprano Susan Legg.


Red Rocca releases the cinematic soundtrack for Project CARS 2, the next evolution in the award-winning racing series developed by Slightly Mad Studios. The epic, neo-classical operatic score by English film and television composer Stephen Baysted was recorded with the London Metropolitan Orchestra at AIR Studios and features the vocal talents of lustrous mezzo soprano Susan Legg. Nominated for Best Audio in the 25th Golden Joystick Awards (vote here), the Project CARS 2 original soundtrack is out now on Spotify and iTunes.

Renowned for his versatility, emotionally charged and expressively powerful music, Stephen Baysted's acclaimed music scores have been enjoyed by audiences worldwide in a succession of award-winning films and video games including the 2015 best-selling racing title Project CARS, EA's Need for Speed series and Phil Grabsky's 'Exhibition On Screen' series of films bringing blockbuster art exhibitions from galleries around the world to the cinema, in stunning high definition. For Project CARS 2, Baysted reprises his role as composer and audio director for Slightly Mad Studios.

"For as long as I can remember I've been mildly obsessed by cars and a big fan of motor racing, so to have the opportunity to write music which involves both passions is fantastic. My approach, and the underlying aesthetic of the music, is to try to capture the range of human emotions and the psychology of the racing driver; why is it that these brave individuals risk their lives in their unerring pursuit of victory? What motivates racing drivers to go faster and to brake later than their opponents even though it could cost them everything? I interviewed several racing drivers to get a real sense of how they think and how they approach racing, and one of the most telling statements came from Ben Collins (racing driver and former BBC Top Gear Stig): 'The fear of losing is far greater than the fear of being hurt'. Those are the questions I began with and as a consequence the score is dramatic, epic in scale and scope, and at times reflective but always emotionally charged."

- Stephen Baysted, Composer


Project CARS 2 is available now worldwide for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One & PC.

Kino Lorber: "Dare to Drum" [dvd]


Kino Lorber announces the DVD release of Dare to Drum, a new concert film and music documentary by John Bryant that tells the story of rock star composer Stewart Copeland -- founder and drummer for The Police, 2003 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and winner of 5 Grammy Awards -- and his groundbreaking collaboration with D'Drum, a Texas-based world percussion group, and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra with the celebrated Maestro Jaap van Zweden.

In 2011, after three years of composing, rehearsals, recording sessions, and trips to Bali and Java, "Gamelan D'Drum" - a musical synthesis of pitch, rhythm, and orchestration - is ready for its world premiere. But when uncharacteristically cold and icy weather hits Dallas, it threatens to derail their dreams of performing the creative masterpiece with the Dallas Symphony.


This release of Dare to Drum coincides with Maestro Jaap van Zweden starting his last season as Music Director of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and beginning his appointment as Music Director Designate of the New York Philharmonic, before his inaugural season next year as the New York Philharmonic's 26th Music Director.

The DVD includes the full 30 minute performance of Gamelan D'Drum, a 3 movement, 35 minute composition for World Percussion and Orchestra by Stewart Copeland, commissioned by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, giving audiences the opportunity to hear this masterful work performed in its entirety.
