Movie Score Media/Kronos Records
Music by: Liam Bates
Coinciding with the theatrical release of the film in United Kingdom, MovieScore Media and Kronos Records releases Irish composer Liam Bates high-octane action score for Last Passenger, an intense genre movie taking place on a speeding London commuter train.
Influenced by some of the most stylish and effective of Jerry Goldsmiths action scores from the 1970s and 1980s, Bates has composed a truly exciting, dark and interesting orchestral score that will attract fans of classic action film scoring. Director Omid Nooshin wanted a score unrepentantly musical and expressive, a throwback to a bygone era of thrillers which inspired my movie in the first place. Hence, the orchestrations features an emphasis on brass and percussion with a lot of agitato string writing in the rhythmic writing, juxtaposed by reflective melodic themes. Film music surprise of the year?
