Shock Waves [1977]: proved to be a film of several firsts.

Wiederhorn's thesis film at Columbia University, Manhattan Melody (1973), had previously won the Student Academy Award for Best Dramatic Film in its inaugural year. Shot on a shoestring budget, with the gracious participation of two film heavyweights in Peter Cushing and John Carradine, It proved that one didn't over-the-top effects or technical perfection to create a movie of chilling psychological horror.

Lakeshore Records: JOURNEY INTO SPACE [2015] - Cody Westheimer

---------------------------------------------------------------
Lakeshore Records will release the JOURNEY INTO SPACE – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on March 3rd and on CD May 5, 2015. The album features original music by Cody Westheimer (HOW I BECAME AN ELPHANT, THE MONO LAKE STORY).

NASA's next era will be its greatest yet. This is the clear "roadmap" painted by JOURNEY TO SPACE. The film absolutely annihilates the perception that the space program died with the end of the Space Shuttle Program by showcasing the exciting plans NASA and the space community are working on, and the challenges they must overcome to carry out audacious missions such as landing astronauts on Mars and capturing asteroids.

“One of my earliest and vivid childhood memories was as a first grader watching the Challenger liftoff and explode.  Of course this is covered in the film as this film really is a tribute to our nations’ space program – past, present and future.  This was an incredibly emotional scene for me to score. In the end I really held back as it needed very, very little,” said Westheimer.  “Conversely, when we land on Mars towards the end of the movie it’s as epic as I can go!”


Giant Screen Films and K2 Films presents JOURNEY TO SPACE which will be released on selected IMAX 3D screens this February 2015. The JOURNEY INTO SPACE – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally on March 3rd and on May 5, 2015.

MovieScore Media: A Dark Reflection [2015] - Moritz Schmittat

-----------------------------------------------------------
The latest release of MovieScore Media is A Dark Reflection, the new thriller directed and co-written by former British Airways Captain Tristan Loraine BCAi, which opens theatrically in the UK on February 27. The film is an investigative thriller based on real events. Two investigative journalists Helen Eastman (Georgina Sutcliffe) and Natasha Stevens (Rita Ramnani) investigate a serious in-flight incident known as 'Flight 313'. Soon they realise this is not a single event but aviation's biggest cover-up dating back to 1954. Going up against powerful airline owners Charles and Maggie Jaspar (played by Nicholas Day and Marina Sirtis), the duo risk their lives to discover the truth and expose it to all who fly.

The score by Moritz Schmittat wraps a dark air of mystery around the decades-old conspiracy with a handful of major action cues towards the beginning and end of the film. The score starts with an abstract call to prayer performed by the legendary Algerian singer Khaled ("Intro"). The orchestral music (recorded with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and the F.A.M.E.S. Orchestra, Skopje) is expanded with the sounds with modern guitars, percussion, synthesizers, 5-string bass and looped elements. The emotional climaxes also feature the wonderful Macedonian singer Aleksandra Popovska (hear the track "Captain David Morris" for example).


London-based composer Moritz Schmittat began his musical studies in his home country Germany, then he moved to the Netherlands where he studied Composition and Music Production at the Utrecht School of the Arts and received a scholarship for the post-graduate film scoring course at the Royal College of Music in London. His recent scorings credits include the wartime drama Shady Lady (2012) about Australia’s most amazing bomber mission and Marry Me (2015), the recent Belgian romantic comedy hit about a Flemish/Turkish wedding. Moritz’s credits include 6 feature films, 40 shorts and various TV commercials.

Intrada: THE CAR [1977-2015] - Leonard Rosenman

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For the 1977 Universal Picture The Car, composer Leonard Rosenman provided a thrilling score anchored around the medieval Dies Irae chant, signaling early on that this is no ordinary automobile on the loose, but a driverless and demonically possessed devil car. This is musically evident from the beginning, with a clanging chord to quickly reflect the arid, desolate look of the film’s desert setting, before low brass and contrabass clarinet intone the Dies Irae theme. The action set pieces, which make up the bulk of the score,  are especially riveting, with the composer leading the orchestra at an unusually breakneck pace. The film afforded Rosenman the opportunity to compose some of the most wildly kinetic and fast-tempo music in Rosenman’s career.

For this release, Intrada was provided access to the original scoring session masters, recorded onto 1/2″ 15 ips three-channel tape at the Universal Studios scoring stage in January and February of 1977. Every roll of tape survived in pristine condition in Universal’s vaults.


In the film, a mysterious black car appears and begins picking off pedestrians in a small desert town. The devil  is a Lincoln Continental Mark III, with two baleful headlight “eyes,” a sneering grill and a staccato, blaring car horn from Hell—all designed to terrify the victims it stalks in an isolated desert town in Utah. The film additionally stars James Brolin as Wade; grizzled tough guy John Marley as the town sheriff; perennial heavy R.G. Armstrong as an abusive husband; and Ronny Cox as an alcoholic deputy, Luke.

Intrada: DUEL [1971-2015] - Billy Goldenberg

-------------------------------------------------------------------
The 1971 Universal telefilm Duel was the first feature-length movie directed by Steven Spielberg, starring the original “monster truck”—a rust-covered, behemoth Peterbilt truck hauling a massive tanker trailer full of gasoline—and featured a white-knuckle game of wits between the truck’s seemingly insane, murderous driver and a panicky everyman played by Dennis Weaver.  Composer Billy Goldenberg was given scoring duties to bring this rust-colored score to life, ultimately ranking as one of the most abstract and experimental works in the composer’s output. Less a presentation of themes than it is a collection of unnerving effects and moods, Goldenberg’s music gets inside the addled brain of David Mann (Weaver) producing a portrait of terror and disintegrating rationality as Mann struggles to fight back against his implacable, anonymous foe. Goldenberg scored for a group of 39 players, limited to strings, harp, keyboards, guitars and percussion, with no brass or woodwinds. Veteran percussionist Emil Richards provided a number of exotic instruments from his vast collection amassed from around the world, and Goldenberg hired Paul Beaver to supply effects with a Moog synthesizer.


The scoring sessions were also innovative for the day, incorporating a then unheard-of-for-television process of recording onto three separate channels (the typical recording format for Universal during that era), then making takes with other instruments on three channels in sessions of their own for overlaying one on top of the other, sometimes gaining up to twelve recordable channels long before such multi-channel recording processes were commonly in use.  In spite of everything ultimately being mixed down to mono for the film's presentation, Universal retained every multiple three-channel recording session layer on separate rolls of ½″ tape. This allowed us to create true stereo takes of nearly every cue, with only the diner source cues in mono. Listeners will thus be hearing some of the most complex television scoring of all time with stunning stereo detail that reveals numerous innovative techniques vividly on display for the first time.
