Howlin' Wolf Records: "THE JACK IN THE BOX" music by Christoph Allerstorfer


Howlin' Wolf Records proudly presents Christoph Allerstorfer's score for THE JACK IN THE BOX. In early discussions with the composer, Director Lawrence Fowler envisioned a score in the tradition of classic horror films. THE JACK IN THE BOX was recorded in Vienna using a small ensemble of musicians, which the composer skillfully blends with modern scoring techniques, to craft a richly textured score.

Debut Album for composer Christoph Allerstorfer and we at Howlin' Wolf Records are proud to able to bring this score to you. On a side note this is the first release I will score an "executive producer", which is the biggest thrill for me.

Kronos Records: "GINA & CHANTAL" Music by JORIS HERMY


GINA AND CHANTAL are two characters that are the main focus of a ten part TV show that was made for Belgian TV. The series which stars Tine Embrechts and Nathalie Meskens was written by Gerrie Van Rompaey and directed by Thomas De Cock. It is a comedy drama that received its inspiration from programmes which looked at real housewives in various settings and locations, that have in recent years become popular on various networks, in which they explore the illusion of wealth and an overbearing desire for power that seems to outweigh what is important in life.  It is seen from both sides as in Gina is the rich employer who wants for nothing and has no real value of life or emotions and cares not much for her employees not even trying to understand or get to know the basics about their lives, and the poor hardworking cleaning lady Chantal who are forced to form an unlikely friendship and an unwilling collaboration as they are both are pulled deeper into a situation that overtakes the entire neighborhood where they live and work.

The director was very insistent that the music for the series would play an important and an integral part of the story-line and would unfold and develop as the story did. He engaged Joris Hermy to write music that was not only fitting and supportive of the scenario as it unfurled, but also he wanted a score that would also add a layer of intrigue and at the same time underline subtly and delicately the psychological aspects of the series. The musical score took the composer over three years to complete, the music is not only dramatic but contains melancholy, a hint of romance and oozes with a sense of apprehension that is laced with mystery. The collaboration between filmmaker and composer emerged as  a fruitful one and turned into a lasting friendship, with Hermy writing what I consider to be a fine soundtrack and one that is not only a vital component of the series, but also has the ability to affect and entertain away from the story-line and the images on screen.

Back Lot Music: "KAJILLIONAIRE" music by Emile Mosseri


From acclaimed writer/director Miranda July comes a profoundly moving and wildly original comedy, Kajillionaire, distributed by Focus Features. The film will see a theatrical release on September 25th, and features an original soundtrack from composer Emile Mosseri (The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Homecoming Season 2), who partnered with Angel Olsen for a cover of Bobby Vinton’s “Mr. Lonely”. The OST arrives on the day of the film’s release, September 25th, and will be available for pre-order through Mondo.

Walking a fine line between mischief and melancholy, Mosseri’s score captures the comical and gut-wrenching world of lifelong grifters. Con-artists Theresa (Debra Winger) and Robert (Richard Jenkins) have spent 26 years training their only daughter, Old Dolio (Evan Rachel Wood), to swindle, scam, and steal at every opportunity. During a desperate, hastily conceived heist, they charm a stranger (Gina Rodriguez) into joining their next scam, only to have their entire world turned upside down.

At July’s and Mosseri’s first meeting, Mosseri arrived with a few pieces of music recorded on his phone. July was apprehensive when he offered to play them, given that she’d yet to fully respond to any one piece of music.

“At that point, I felt like the princess and the pea, but I said, sure, go ahead and play them. The first thing he played was the love theme for Old Dolio and Melanie, and it was the most beautiful thing I’d ever heard. I couldn't believe I was so lucky. We just went from there. We had five weeks to get it done. It was a perfect collaboration,” July said.

As they put the score together, July and Mosseri exchanged music they both enjoyed and felt suited the film. A common artist shared in their exchanges was Angel Olsen, who soon emerged as a contender for the Bobby Vinton number, “Mr. Lonely.”

“So at Sundance, when Miranda and I started talking about making a version of ‘Mr. Lonely’ for the album, Angel's name was at the top of the list,” Mosseri recalls. “We got lucky! she happened to be in LA for a week right before the pandemic hit.  We built a version of the song out of the fabric of the score, and Angel came by and sang it so beautifully.  It was a truly magical day.”

When July reached out to her about covering “Mr. Lonely”, Olsen was immediately interested.

“Suddenly there she was. THE MIRANDA JULY. In my text messages,” Angel remembers. “She was working on songs with Emile for the upcoming film Kajillionaire, which at the time I knew nothing about. I just so happened to be in Los Angeles. So I met with them both, and we talked about cadence and we talked about life and we talked about the film. And Miranda directed me to sing the cover in the way she and Emile thought it would represent the feelings behind the film. It was a lovely experience. Later, Miranda and I went outside for a little break and we did a little improv with each other. Just us."

About Emile Mosseri... is an award-winning composer, pianist, singer and producer based in Los Angeles. He has scored films including The Last Black Man In San Francisco, Minari, and Kajillionaire, and composed for TV shows like HBO's Random Acts of Flyness from Terence Nance and Amazon’s Homecoming Season 2 starring Janelle Monáe. Mosseri is also a member of the group Human Love, a recording artist, and touring musician.

Back Lot Music: "AWAY" music by Will Bates


Back Lot Music has digitally released an album from the Netflix Original Series Away (produced by Universal Television) by composer Will Bates (I Origins, Another Earth). The sci-fi drama’s score is full of electronic atmospheric soundscapes with an intense emotional undercurrent. Bates takes listeners on a beautifully diverse sonic journey with this 22-track album.
 
“I had an amazing experience scoring Away. Having worked with the show-runners on several projects together before, including The Path and Rise, there was already a shared language and a real mutual sense of trust,” says Will Bates.

“Sharing that explorer’s sense of wonder and aspiration, space itself can be something of an exciting blank canvas for a composer. And the show-runners were always keen to try something a little different. I found myself experimenting with all sorts of unusual instrumentation; from dulcimers, prepared pianos and dusty old parlor organs to modular synths, timpani and manipulated live strings. Identifying the human themes whilst capturing the vast distances of space. And of course, having one of the lead actor’s play pieces I’d written for him was thrilling in its own right,” says Bates.

ABOUT AWAY... Away is a thrilling, emotional drama on an epic scale that celebrates the incredible advancements humans can achieve and the personal sacrifices they must make along the way. As American astronaut Emma Green (Hilary Swank) prepares to lead an international crew on the first mission to Mars, she must reconcile her decision to leave behind her husband (Josh Charles) and teenage daughter (Talitha Bateman) when they need her the most. As the crew’s journey into space intensifies, their personal dynamics and the effects of being away from their loved ones back on Earth become increasingly complex. Away shows that sometimes to reach for the stars, we must leave home behind. Created by Andrew Hinderaker, the series is executive-produced by showrunner Jessica Goldberg, Jason Katims, Matt Reeves, Andrew Hinderaker, Edward Zwick, Hilary Swank, Adam Kassan and Jeni Mulein.
 
ABOUT WILL BATES... Will Bates is an award-winning composer, multi-instrumentalist and founder of music production company Fall On Your Sword. He has composed original scores for a myriad of filmmakers including acclaimed directors Mike Cahill (Another Earth, I Origins), Alex Gibney (We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, Zero Days), Ry Russo-Young (You Won’t Miss Me, Nobody Walks) and Fisher Stevens (Mission Blue, Bright Lights).
 
Bates has scored a number of television series: Golden Globe & Emmy-nominated Netflix series Unbelievable, SyFy’s hit The Magicians, Hulu’s The Path, Chance and The Looming Tower, the Hilary Swank-led drama Away for Netflix, as well as NBC’s Rise. Other projects include Sweetbitter on Starz, the George R.R. Martin series Nightflyers on Netflix, and the Hulu biographical documentary Hillary. Will’s recent features include Michael Tyburski’s The Sound of Silence, the HBO documentary The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley, and the horror-thriller Depraved. Upcoming features include Michael Haussman’s Rajah set in 19th century Borneo, Mike Cahill’s Bliss and Alex Gibney’s Crazy, Not Insane.

Global Video Contest: "Enter the world of Hans Zimmer"


Sony Music, with the support of YouTube, announces the launch of a global video production competition involving one of cinema’s most celebrated composers: Hans Zimmer. Video makers are invited to create an original music video using a classic composition from Hans Zimmer. The winners will be announced in November 2020.

Participants can submit their video accompanying one of the following compositions from the “The World of Hans Zimmer” album: “Gladiator Orchestra Suite: Part 3 Now We Are Free”, “Inception: Time - Orchestra Version”, “The Da Vinci Code Orchestral Suite: Part 4”, “The Dark Knight Orchestra Suite” and “The Lion King Orchestra Suite”. Unlike the usual movie production process, where scores are normally composed once a film is in post-production, the process will be reversed for this contest in order to test the participants’ creative instincts and film-making skills.

In Hans Zimmer’s spirit, there will be no restrictions for this contest. Synchronized or unsynchronized. Live action or animated. Colorful or gritty. Poetically abstract or brutally real. It’s all up to the contestants. This is an exercise where confidence, flair and above all, blistering creativity will be tested.

Video makers have to register on entertheworldofhanszimmer.com and need to upload the finished production to their own YouTube channel using the contest’s hashtag #EnterTheWorldOfHansZimmer. A jury will decide on the winning entries — one for each of the five songs. The winning videos will be released and announced as official music videos for those compositions from “The World of Hans Zimmer” album in November of this year. On top of this, Semmel Concerts will invite the winners to experience “The World of Hans Zimmer” live on one of the many upcoming tour dates.

Patrick Mushatsi-Kareba, CEO Sony Music Entertainment Germany: “We are delighted to host this competition alongside one of the greatest composers of today and YouTube. We wish all talents out there the best of luck!”

Dan Chalmers, Director YouTube Music EMEA: “This is an amazing and very unique project. We are happy that one of the best composers out there is connecting with our YouTube community and I can't wait to see the creative outcome. I think almost everybody knows Hans´ music from a visit in the cinema and was touched.”

His most recent credits include the psychological horror film The Unfamiliar, the coming-of-age drama Iceland is Best, and the action-thriller Knuckledust.
 
Other credits include Oliver Hirschbiegel’s International cold war mini-series for Netflix and ZDF, The Same Sky, which premiered at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival, the Universal Pictures’ documentary feature Ronaldo, the Three Penny Opera by Joachim Lang, based on Berthold Brecht’s Beggar’s Opera, Lucid directed by Adam Morse, 3 Way Junction, and Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River starring Saorise Ronan, Matt Smith, Christina Hendricks, and Eva Mendes. His music can also be heard in Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto video games, Sony’s sci-fi franchise Killzone, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction and The Creative Assembly’s Total War series.
 
Walter believes that the main principle of creativity is to come up with genuine sounds, and he enjoys experimenting and creating unique sonic worlds for each of his projects, using his extensive collection of analog digital synths and blending live orchestral arrangements with experimental post-recording techniques.

 
In 2006, Walter moved from his native Austria to London to open his own state-of-the-art recording studio in SoHo and is a member of both BAFTA and BASCA.

Whistle Music: "DON'T LOOK DEEPER" music by Nora Kroll- Rosenbaum


Whistle Music, a joint venture between Alcon Sleeping Giant (ASG) Records and Team Whistle has digitally released the Original Series Soundtrack to Quibi’s highly popular sci-fi drama series Don’t Look Deeper (ASG Music Group/10:22 pm/UMe) from director Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, Thirteen). The album features an original score by Grammy Award-winning composer Nora Kroll-Rosenbaum (Bird Karma, Champaign ILL) that blurs the boundaries between organic and inorganic, biological and machine, and acoustic and electronic.
 
“I wanted the listener to be carried by the music, lifted by it, safely led by a strange familiar melody that flows throughout the story,” says Nora. “The music weaves and morphs sounds together—flutes with moogs, 808s with orchestra, processed voices with string quartet. The identity of the score embraces a plural space that loves on technology and pushes and subverts the possibility of the acoustic.”
 
The Don’t Look Deeper score features a string quartet, string orchestra, flutes, keyboards, electronics, sampled heartbeats, boiling water kettles, and voices. Nora Kroll-Rosenbaum collaborated with numerous amazing musicians on the recording of the score—including Lisa Liu and Grace Oh on violins, Alma Fernandez on viola, Ben Lash on cello, the Macedonian Symphonic Orchestra, flutist Amy Raasch, and vocalist Taura Stinson. Nora recorded electronics, keyboards and vocals on the score.
 
“I had so much fun collaborating with the brilliant vocalist and songwriter Taura Stinson on a number of tracks for Don’t Look Deeper. We made lists of body parts and deconstructed robot identities to create vocal shapes and contours. To score the flashback opening of episode 10, Catherine Hardwicke [director] came up with the radical idea of re-recording Diane Warren’s iconic ‘If I Could Turn Back Time,’ performed by an 8-year-old singer. Eden Kontesz filled Cher’s famous shoes, and the track, produced in collaboration with Tim Kobza, bizarrely underscores images of a child dissecting a doll,” says Kroll-Rosenbaum.
 
“Composer Nora Kroll- Rosenbaum had a deep understanding of Aisha’s character as someone who doesn’t fit in – doesn’t feel quite right in her skin,” said Don’t Look Deeper director Catherine Hardwicke. “She created music that is emotional and intriguing – and has vocal elements of human ‘breath’  – that subtly connect us to the humanity of the character. Nora was able to create a very original, powerful score that at times is haunting, soothing, terrifying, and always somehow -- beautiful.”
 
Don’t Look Deeper is executive produced by New Form, a Team Whistle company, starring Don Cheadle, Emily Mortimer and Helena Howard, all episodes now streaming on Quibi. The Don’t Look Deeper - Original Series Soundtrack is available for digital download today.

ABOUT DON’T LOOK DEEPER
Set in Merced, California, “fifteen minutes into the future,” Don’t Look Deeper centers on a high school senior who can’t seem to shake the feeling that something about her just isn’t right. And that something is… she’s not human… not one of us. This revelation of what she really is, where she comes from, and who has started looking for her, sets in motion a series of events that suddenly puts her entire life in jeopardy. Don’t Look Deeper is a co-production between New Form and 30 Ninjas for Quibi.

Of the soundtrack, composer RICHARD REED PARRY says, “When I watched the very first rough cut of The Nest without any music, I could feel right away what I wanted the score to be: Music that sounded like it was written and played somewhere within the massive old manor house that so much of the film centers around… I am very grateful to my fantastic musical collaborators, and for Sean Durkin’s trust in my own intuitive musical process and the artistic space and freedom he gave me to explore the musical landscape of his film.”

“Long before Richard was the composer for the film I was listening to his Music for Heart and Breath album while writing the script, so for him to come on to the project was very exciting for me,” adds The Nest director SEAN DURKIN. “It’s been an incredible collaboration working with him. He’s created a stunning score that captures the atmosphere and emotion I wanted the film to encompass.”

Rory (Jude Law), an ambitious entrepreneur and former commodities broker, persuades his American wife, Allison (Carrie Coon), and their children to leave the comforts of suburban America and return to his native England during the 1980s. Sensing opportunity, Rory rejoins his former firm and leases a centuries-old country manor, with grounds for Allison’s horses and plans to build a stable. Soon the promise of a lucrative new beginning starts to unravel, the couple have to face the unwelcome truths lying beneath the surface of their marriage.

Richard Reed Parry is the red headed musical polymath at the heart of the endlessly inventive art rock band Arcade Fire, but his work and story reach far beyond.  Born in Toronto in 1977 and raised in a community of ex-pat British isles folk musicians, he attended Canterbury high school in Ottawa, Canada where he graduated from the first generation of its Literary Arts programme. In 1998 he headed to Montreal where he studied electroacoustics and contemporary dance at Concordia University, paving the way for a career on the wilder edge of music.

As well as navigating Arcade Fire's meteoric rollercoaster ride around most of the globe over the past 15 years, he also released his debut album as composer “Music For Heart and Breath” in 2014 on legendary classical music label Deutsche Grammophon, formed and toured in the acclaimed contemporary instrumental ensemble Bell Orchestre with AF violinist Sarah Neufeld, formed the sonic folk ensemble Quiet River of Dust, and collaborated and performed endlessly with artists from across a dazzling musical/artistic spectrum including David Bowie, David Byrne, the New York Philharmonic, Neil Young, Kronos Quartet, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Mick Jagger, The National, Spike Jonze, Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, Justin Vernon, yMusic, Caroline Shaw, Sam Amidon, Terry Gilliam, Garth Hudson, Nadia Sirota, Colin Stetson, Britten Sinfonia, Barr Brothers, Little Scream, LaLaLa Human Steps, Bang On a Can, Alexi Murdoch, and The Unicorns.

In 2017, Parry premiered Wave Movements, an hour-long composition for string orchestra which he composed in tandem with frequent collaborator Bryce Dessner, alongside a film created by Hiroshi Sugimoto, at Barbican UK and the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art.  2017 also saw the premiere of Black Mountain Songs at Brooklyn Academy of Music, a multi media music performance based around the Black Mountain School, which he co-curated and co-composed with Caroline Shaw and Bryce Dessner for the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, released as an album on New Amsterdam Records.  In 2018 and 2019 he released Volumes 1 and 2 of the Quiet River of Dust album series on Anti Records, which he launched with a 4 week performance residency inside the Satosphère dome of Montreal’s Societé des Arts Technologiques, where he performed both albums in their entirety inside a 360-projected visual world built around the music, for the Festival International de Jazz Montreal.

He has won a Grammy Award for Album of the Year, multiple Juno Awards for both Arcade Fire and Bell Orchestre, The Polaris Prize, Brit Awards, and Socan Awards among others.  He speaks English, French and is currently studying Japanese. He lives in Montreal.  Sometimes.  [www.richardreedparry.com]

Hasbro: "TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON TRILOGY - SIEGE" music by TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON


Hasbro has digitally released Transformers: War for Cybertron - Siege Original Anime Series Soundtrack by Alexander Bornstein. The soundtrack features 17 electro-charged tracks from the hit Netflix Original Series, in partnership with Rooster Teeth.
 
"Being brought on to compose an entirely new musical world for the 'Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy' on Netflix has been both a dream job and huge creative responsibility," said Bornstein about the incredible task of creating new music for the beloved franchise. "The world of the Autobots and Decepticons has been part of my pop culture psyche for a long time, going all the way back to watching G1 reruns on the Sci-Fi Channel in the early 90s.  I'm very excited fans will now have a chance to delve deeper into the music of the trilogy's first chapter 'Siege', and hear the show's themes for characters like Elita-1, extensive use of analog synthesizers, and amazing solo players."
 
Executive Producer F.J. Desanto remarked, “The entire 'Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy' team is ecstatic that Alex’s soundtrack for SIEGE is going to be made available. Collaborating with Alex and watching him work with the talented team of musicians he has assembled has been one of the most rewarding aspects of producing this series. He brings a genuine passion that can be felt in every note he’s written and I can’t wait for fans to immerse themselves in this incredible soundtrack.”
 
TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON TRILOGY - SIEGE begins in the final hours of the devastating civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. The war that has torn apart their home planet of Cybertron is at a tipping point. Two leaders, Optimus Prime and Megatron, both want to save their world and unify their people, but only on their own terms. In an attempt to end the conflict, Megatron is forced to consider using the Allspark, the source of all life and power on Cybertron, to “reformat” the Autobots, thus “unifying” Cybertron. Outnumbered, outgunned, and under SIEGE, the battle-weary Autobots orchestrate a desperate series of counterstrikes on a mission that, if everything somehow goes right, will end with an unthinkable choice: kill their planet in order to save it.

WaterTower Music: "TENET" music by Ludwig Göransson


WaterTower Music has today released the digital soundtrack to acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi action spectacle Tenet. The Tenet (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) features music from Academy- and Grammy Award-winning composer Ludwig Göransson (Black Panther, The Mandalorian), and features the new, original song “The Plan” by multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated recording artist Travis Scott, and produced by Göransson, Wondagurl and Scott.
 
Describing his process, Göransson says, “There are a lot of sound illusions in the score.  I spent an inordinate amount of time taking familiar sounds, then, both organically and digitally, manipulating them so that they reflected the complex world of ‘Tenet.’  One of the biggest challenges for me in writing this score was how do I provide a musical roadmap for audiences as they experience something so conceptually ambitious and technically unprecedented?”
 
Although he had never worked with the director before, Göransson explains that, “Chris has had a colossal impact on the way I approach and experience film. Speaking with him, about his vision for the score, I was immediately struck by the depth of his musical knowledge and his drive to push the boundaries in music production with Tenet. When I started writing, those conversations became listening sessions where we would dissect the sounds, harmonies and textures, then refine them little by little. By the time Chris left to shoot, he had two hours of music to listen to as he traveled all over the world. He would write me notes from wherever he was with ideas on which sound belonged to which character, or how the music could interact differently with a scene he was shooting that day.”
 
Travis Scott created and is featured on the original song “The Plan,” which resulted from a suggestion by the composer. Christopher Nolan offers, “One of Ludwig’s suggestions was to bring in Travis Scott, show him the film and get his insight. Travis watched the film and really connected with it and in the end, his voice, the song he created using Ludwig’s tracks and the way in which we wound up layering his voice into various elements of the soundtrack became really the final piece of this puzzle that we’d been working on for so long.“
 
Göransson further elaborated. “When I watched the movie in its entirety, I started to feel that the end needed a new voice to reflect the culmination of the Homeric journey we’ve just experienced. The first artist that came to mind was Travis Scott. Conceptually, his artistic voice is very much in step with the sound palette we’ve created for Tenet, and I felt that he and Chris might almost be kindred spirits when it comes to creating fully realized worlds with music and visuals. Travis became one of the first people in the world to see Tenet, and his observations of the experience were exactly what Chris was looking for. His song is such a perfect fit for the movie that Chris and I asked if we could weave a short snippet of his vocal into the score at various points throughout the film. Travis Scott did indeed create the missing piece of the puzzle.”

ABOUT TENET... John David Washington is the new Protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi action spectacle Tenet.  Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.

The international cast of Tenet also includes Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Martin Donovan, Fiona Dourif, Yuri Kolokolnikov, Himesh Patel, Clémence Poésy, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, with Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh.
 
Nolan wrote and directed the film, utilizing a mixture of IMAX® and 70mm film to bring the story to the screen. Tenet was produced by Emma Thomas and Nolan. Thomas Hayslip served as executive producer.
 
Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Syncopy Production, a Film by Christopher Nolan, “Tenet.” Warner Bros. Pictures is distributing Tenet in theatres and IMAX worldwide and has slated the film for domestic release on September 3, 2020, and internationally beginning on August 26, 2020. Tenet has been rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some suggestive references and brief strong language.”

WaterTower Music, the in-house label for the WarnerMedia companies, releases recorded music as rich and diverse as the companies themselves. It has been the soundtrack home to many of the world’s most iconic films, television shows and games since 2001.
