Back To Gaya [2012] - Michael Kamen

Back To Gaya [2012]
[1000 Units]
Available: January 24, 2012
Released By: MovieScore Media
Composer: Michael Kamen







Info: We are proud to announce that we will release the legendary Michael Kamen's original orchestral score from the German fantasy animation Back to Gaya on CD and online. The completion of the score was an extraordinary achievement as the composer tragically, in the midst of composing the music for the film, passed away. Committed to fulfill the vision of Kamen, complementing the music he had written specifically for Back to Gaya with a selection of his unused compositions from previous film projects, a team of composer and orchestrators headed by Kamens long-time associates Steve McLaughlin (producer/recording engineer) and Christopher Brooks (producer/music editor) finalized the score to fit the film perfectly. MovieScore Media's album features 62 minutes of grand orchestral, adventurous and highly entertaining Michael Kamen music performed by the London Metropolitan Orchestra.

In honour of the late maestro, MovieScore Media will share a portion of revenues generated by the album with Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, which was founded by Michael Kamen in 1996 as his commitment to the future of music education.

Okay I am thrilled about this release for several reasons and I hope to give you my reasons and why you should get this score to "Back To Gaya". First it is a great moving epic piece of a jousting score, what you might come to expect to an animated film. Second it's Michael Kamen and this being one of the last few works/involvements of his career before his death in 2003 at the age of 55. It is wonderful piece of music that MovieScore Media was able to get this produced and for us to enjoy. Third the "Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation" will benefit from profits made from the sales of this release, this is a foundation set up by Kamen. All that being said, I really am enjoying this score as I find myself listening as I write this because that is how I do it... I know I will be adding this to one of my favorites for 2012.
