Intrada: "DIAL M FOR MURDER" Film Score Recording


Alfred Hitchcock's decade-spanning career involved many top composers, resulting in some of the finest film music composed for the cinema. Many recordings of the earlier works haven't survived, making it impossible to enjoy them outside of their films. Intrada is embarking on  a mission to record some of these scores, and you are instrumental in making this happen.

Ep. 1 - CRIME IN THE STREETS: actors: Robert Preston, John Cassavetes
Ep. 2 - NO RIGHT TO KILL: actors: John Cassavetes, Terry Moore, Robert H. Harris

The 1950s produced a treasure trove of live dramatic programs originating from New York.  Top talent from stage and screen were retained for both in front and back of the camera.  These two prime examples convey the feeling of watching a Broadway performance, but with the advantage of abundant and intimate close-ups and medium shots. They are surprisingly cinematic, especially considering the impediments those behind the camera had to face - clunky cameras, hot lights, quick set changes, live music and sound effects and always being mindful of keeping microphones out of the frame.  Clearly, the highlights of these programs are the intense performances by John Cassavetes, with his variation of method acting displayed in full form.

The first program is titled "Crime in the Streets" and is from The Elgin Hour (Elgin watches) and was broadcast live on ABC, Tuesday, March 8, 1955. It was written by Reginald Rose and directed by Sidney Lumet, starring Robert Preston and a very young John Cassavetes. The second program, "No Right to Kill," was part of the Climax! series and was presented by the Chrysler Corporation. It is based on Dostoyevsky's "Crime and Punishment" and adapted for TV by Victor Wolfson. It was broadcast on CBS, Thursday, August 9, 1956. Nostalgia buffs will enjoy the original commercial messages that are included in the episode. Also included: a bonus blooper reel from the "Defenders" and "The Nurses" series. (120 minutes, B&W, 1955-1956, TV-PG)

Tor Books: "Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds" by Brandon Sanderson

Stephen Leeds is perfectly sane. It's his hallucinations who are mad.... A genius of unrivaled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people—Stephen calls them aspects—to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems . . . for a price.

His brain is getting a little crowded and the aspects have a tendency of taking on lives of their own. When a company hires him to recover stolen property—a camera that can allegedly take pictures of the past—Stephen finds himself in an adventure crossing oceans and fighting terrorists. What he discovers may upend the foundation of three major world religions—and, perhaps, give him a vital clue into the true nature of his aspects.

Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds includes Legion, Legion: Skin Deep and the brand new, shocking finale to Leeds' story, Lies of the Beholder.

Brandon Sanderson grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska. He lives in Utah with his wife and children and teaches creative writing at Brigham Young University. He is the author of such bestsellers as the Mistborn® trilogy and its sequels, The Alloy of Law, Shadows of Self, and The Bands of Mourning; the Stormlight Archive novels The Way of Kingsand Words of Radiance; and other novels, including The Rithmatist and Steelheart. In 2013, he won a Hugo Award for Best Novella for The Emperor's Soul, set in the world of his acclaimed first novel, Elantris. Additionally, he was chosen to complete Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time® sequence.

MovieScore Media: "THE RAFT" Music by Hans Appelqvist

MovieScore Media continues its championing of remarkable documentary scores with Hans Appelqvist’s music for The Raft. In 1973, five men and six women drifted across the Atlantic on a raft as part of a scientific experiment studying the sociology of violence, aggression and sexual attraction in human behavior. Through extraordinary archive material and a reunion of the surviving members of the expedition on a full scale replica of the raft, this film tells the hidden story behind what has been described as 'one of the strangest group experiments of all time.' The soundtrack release coincides with the film’s Danish premiere on 5 September.

“The music had to be energetic and draw the audience into the film” says the composer about the film. “I did that by finding inspiration from old Hollywood movies, especially how harmony worked in those days with constant modulation going from one place to the next just over a few clips. I tried to update that approach and apply it to my score in order to surprise and captivate the audience. Another nod back to older days was the more puristic approach to the recording the music. No overdubbing and no synthesizers were allowed. Only acoustic instruments playing together in a good-sounding room.”

Swedish composer / artist / director Hans Appelqvist has been working in the field of music and film since  the early 2000s when he studied at the Royal Danish Conservatory to become a tonmeister. His more recent film scoring credits include Niki Lindroth von Bahr's stop-motion animated musical short film The Burden and a silent score for Yasujiro Ozu’s I Was Born But…  for the Swedish Film Institute. Besides film music Hans has released five critically acclaimed albums, the first of which (Bremort) won the Best Pop Album of the Year Award by P3. His most recent album, Swimming Pool was released by American experimental label Orange Milk Records. [http://moviescoremedia.com/]

Intrada: "*BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED [2CD]" Music by James Horner

Intrada's latest release is an expanded soundtrack for the 1987 Universal and Amblin film *batteries not included. Composer James Horner wrote 90 minutes of music for the film, about half of which appeared on the MCA album issued at the time of the film's release. Horner composed a portion of the score for big band, reflecting the generation of the elderly folk living in the film's NY apartment building setting. The second facet of the score is the traditional symphonic fantasy style Horner had made his mark on during the '80s. At times the two styles intersect, as fantasy and reality interweave throughout the film.

This release features Shawn Murphy's original two-track stereo mixes. The new album includes several substantial cues being heard for the first time, not only because they were omitted from the initial album but because they were also omitted from the film. And of course the album features music in the film not on the original release. Since two CDs were required to present the entire 90-minute score, there was enough room to include the original MCA program as a bonus.

The story focuses on a fading property in New York City’s Lower East Side. Landlords Frank and Faye Riley (Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy) run a diner on the ground floor and rent out apartments above. But an unscrupulous real estate developer has torn down the rest of the block and only the Rileys and their tenants stand in the way of his major construction project. The ultimate destruction of the building seems inevitable. But help arrives in a most unexpected fashion—two small spaceships that seem able and willing to fix things. These seemingly sentient machines make a nest on the building’s roof and, using bits and pieces of metal, give birth to three “children.” Soon, a lively relationship springs up between the spacecraft family and their  hosts. Meanwhile, the impatient developer decides to surreptitiously torch the building. The resulting explosion leaves only an empty shell. But the Fix-its return and restore both the building and all the residents’ lost hopes.

The 26th CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Gergely Hubai, an exclusive audio commentary by the composer, and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.
Upon first listening... it was a charging rousing score, filled with plenty of high points and great amount of my favorite horns. NICE JOB, VERY NICE JOB! I am going to listen more, for sure. Joe Kraemer like everything attacked this project and brought it too life and Caldera Records again amazes me, again and again!! I am not sure about this, but I am interested to know if they will incorporate this into the 1927 film "SUNRISE" or at the very least see some footage of this being recorded.

Lakeshore Records: "PEPPERMINT" Music by Simon Franglen

Lakeshore Records is pleased to announce the release of PEPPERMINT – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on CD and Digital Download available now. The album features original music by Grammy-winning composer Simon Franglen.

“PEPPERMINT has a raw edge as a movie, the open wounds of the lead character, Riley North, are both physical and mental,” said Franglen. “The music needed to show two distinct sides, inside and outside Riley’s head. It had to reflect her emotions as well as propel the action and tension as any thriller score should.”

PEPPERMINT is an action thriller which tells the story of young mother Riley North (Jennifer Garner) who awakens from a coma after surviving a brutal attack on her family that killed her husband and daughter. When the system frustratingly shields the murderers from justice, Riley sets out to transform herself from citizen to urban guerilla. Channeling her frustration into personal motivation, she spends years in hiding honing her mind, body and spirit to become an unstoppable force – eluding the underworld, the LAPD and the FBI- as she methodically delivers her personal brand of justice.

Milan Records: "KING OF THIEVES" Music by Benjamin Wallfisch

Milan Records is releasing the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for KING OF THIEVES today on digital platforms, with CD and LP releases to follow.

The film (starring Sir Michael Caine, Sir Tom Courtenay, Sir Michael Gambon, Charlie Cox, Jim Broadbent, Paul Whitehouse and Ray Winstone) tells the story of the notorious Hatton Garden diamond heist and will release theatrically today in the U.K. It is directed by Oscar winning director James Marsh (THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING, MAN ON WIRE) and produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (DARKEST HOUR, BABY DRIVER), Michelle Wright, Ali Jafaar and Amelia Granger.

The original score by Golden Globe®, BAFTA®, GRAMMY® and Emmy® nominated composer Benjamin Wallfisch features full big band and in the composer’s words is “a love letter to the 60’s.”

“The complete score becomes a tapestry of musical surprises – which is the great virtue of all Ben's work,” said director James Marsh.

“In our initial discussions, Ben and I had found a common inspiration in the work of John Barry. We wanted that kind of mysterious, lush, retro feel to our score but reimagined for the 21st century through Ben’s unique sensibility. Thus, the Cimbalom and our other key instrument, the Wurlitzer. But there’s quite a bit more to the score than that. The musical voice of the police investigation is inflected with spacey electronica. The main heist is a raucous, exuberant re-working of Tchaikowsky’s Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy as played by a big band.

The music here can be enjoyed happily away from the film, but I don’t think the converse is true. As with all the best scores, the music in KING OF THIEVES is the air the film needs in order to breathe.”

His compositions include original scores for A Cure For Wellness, Hidden Figures, Lights Out, Desert Dancer, It, and Blade Runner 2049.

MVD Entertainment Group: "Schlock" [Blu-ray] (1973)

From writer/director John Landis, the mind behind The Blues Brothers and An American Werewolf in London, comes a love story that transcends the boundaries of nature and good taste - the one and only Schlock! Carnage! Terror! Banana skins! The mighty prehistoric ape Schlocktropus has emerged from hiding to embark on a full-scale rampage across a quiet Southern Californian suburb. The police are baffled. 

The army is powerless. The body count is rising. But when Schlocktropus encounters a kindly blind woman (Eliza Garrett, National Lampoon's Animal House) who sees beyond his grotesque visage, the homicidal simian is presented with a chance at redemption... Shot over twelve days on a micro-budget, Schlock launched the careers of both Landis and legendary effects makeup artist Rick Baker (Videodrome). An uproarious pastiche of monster movies, packed to the gills with irreverent humor and biting satire, Schlock serves as the outrageous missing link between the creature features of yesteryear and its creators' subsequent varied and celebrated careers.
