THE VATICAN TAPES [2015] - Joseph Bishara


Lakeshore Records will release THE VATICAN TAPES – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on July 17th and on CD on August 14, 2015.  The film features original score by Joseph Bishara (Insidious Trilogy, The CONJURING).

The Vatican Tapes follows the ultimate battle between good and evil - God versus Satan. Angela Holmes (Olivia Taylor Dudley) is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It's all up to Father Lozano (Michael Peña) to wage war for more than just Angela's soul, but for the world as we know it.

A horror movie music specialist, Bishara was able to hone into the themes pretty easily. “My entry into the sound was to key into the particular shade of force behind the possession on display, leading into energies of the rite of exorcism,” he described.  “The motives of the score came through percussion writing, as well as a series of figures for a low string and wind arrangement.”


Joseph Bishara is a composer and music producer who combines a range of elements and approaches for the unique and dark aesthetic of his work. He won the Fangoria Chainsaw Award for Best Score for Insidious, and again collaborated with director James Wan to compose the scores for The Conjuring and Insidious: Chapter 2, then later with Leigh Whannell for Insidious: Chapter 3. Fans of Insidious have not only heard his work but have also seen him materialize on-screen, as the Lipstick-Face Demon. He appeared in The Conjuring as the nightmarish witch Bathsheba; and in Annabelle, directed by John Leonetti and for which Mr. Bishara also composed the score, as the Demonic Figure.

THE VATICAN TAPES is a Pantelion release of a Lakeshore Entertainment and Lionsgate production, premiering in theaters July 24, 2015.  Lakeshore Records will release THE VATICAN TAPES – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on July 17th and on CD on August 14, 2015.

WAYWARD PINES [2015] - Charlie Clouser


Lakeshore Records will release the WAYWARD PINES – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on July 17th and on CD July 24, 2015.  The album features the show’s original score by Charlie Clouser (SAW, Numb3rs).

“The main direction I received was that the score should help with the feeling that ‘something is not right’ in the town of Wayward Pines,” said Clouser. “For a while, we don’t know if Matt Dillon’s character is hallucinating, or maybe still in a coma and just dreaming, so the score needed to lean toward a ‘malfunctioning’ feel - that meant using sounds that are a little ‘out of whack’. As the series progresses, the score starts to get more and more intense - so we needed to keep raising the stakes while still being able to reference the themes and palette that we established right at the start.”

10-episode, intense psychological thriller WAYWARD PINES is brought to life by suspenseful storyteller M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs), and stars Academy Award® nominee Matt Dillon (Crash) as a Secret Service agent on a mission to find two missing federal agents, whose investigation only turns up more questions.
 


Charlie Clouser came into prominence as a member of Nine Inch Nails from 1994-2000.  Before joining the band as keyboardist/programmer, he’d already built a following with his extreme synth work and remixes for Prong, Marilyn Manson, White Zombie and others.  His dense layers of chopped up beats and grinding synthbass lines were instrumental in defining the sound of White Zombie’s double-platinum 1994 breakthrough album Astrocreep: 2000 led to numerous collaborations with frontman Rob Zombie.

Lakeshore Records: CARTEL LAND [2015] - H. Scott Salinas and Jackson Greenberg


CARTEL LAND – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on June 30 and on CD September 18, 2015.  The film features original score by H. Scott Salinas (THE SQUARE, THE NEWSROOM) and Jackson Greenberg (Israel Inside: How a Small Nation Makes a Big Difference).  Matthew Heineman directed CARTEL LAND, which earned recognition for Best Director (US Documentary) and Best Cinematography (US Documentary) at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.  Kathryn Bigelow served as the Executive Producer. 


“From our very first conversation to the completion of the score, Matt struck the perfect balance of both inspiring us with different ideas, and also allowing us room to explore musical areas that were new for both me and Scott,” said Greenberg.  “Matt came to us with the idea of using a lot of the natural sounds he had recorded during his time in Mexico to create a musical soundscape that was grounded in the locations that the film took place. In many ways this process, of taking one sound and making it into another, defined the foundation for music in Cartel Land.”

The Orchard presents CARTEL LAND in limited theaters July.  The CARTEL LAND – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally on June 30th and on CD September 18, 2015.

Varèse Sarabande: I AM BIG BIRD [2015] - Joshua Johnson


Varèse Sarabande will release the I AM BIG BIRD – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally June 30 and on CD July 31, 2015.  The album features the original music composed by Joshua Johnson (WE MUST GO, additional music THE MAZE RUNNER).

“Though Big Bird exists on Sesame Street, this film is not a Sesame Street film; it is a film about Caroll, the character Big Bird, and the love between Caroll and his wife Deb,” said Johnson.

This heartwarming doc chronicles the life of Caroll Spinney, the man who has been Sesame Street's Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch since 1969.  For over 4 decades, Caroll's characters have been cherished by generations of children. At 81 years old, the tenacious and enthusiastic performer has no intention of slowing down. 

"The music is the perfect accompaniment to the emotions throughout the movie,” said Spinney.  “My wife Deb and I listen to the soundtrack on our travels."
 


I AM BIG BIRD features incredible footage of Spinney's earliest collaborations with Jim Henson as it traces Caroll's journey from bullied child to celebrated performer. This loving portrait peels away the instances that inspired his creation of Big Bird and as the yellow feathers give way to grey hair, it is the man, not the puppet, who will steal your heart.

I Am Big Bird is currently available on iTunes, and will be in theaters across the US this summer.  I AM BIG BIRD – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on Varèse Sarabande, will be available digitally June 30 and on CD July 31, 2015.

 
Just Announced, I am not sure I like his head off... it takes away from the magic of Big Bird?
