Lakeshore Records: Something Wicked [2014] - Kyle Newmaster


LAKESHORE RECORDS PRESENTS:
SOMETHING WICKED [2014]
Featuring Original Music by Kyle Newmaster
 
(March 21, 2014– Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release SOMETHING WICKED – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and via Amazon Disc-On-Demand April 1, 2014.  The soundtrack features original music by Kyle Newmaster (KINECT STAR WARS, BLOOD SHOT).  SOMETHING WICKED is the final film starring the late actress Brittany Murphy.

“I also had a blast scoring the tense more traditional horror moments in the film. I really enjoy writing tense, dark, orchestral music and combining it with other sounds and elements,” said Newmaster.  “For these scenes I did quite a bit of recording with live orchestral musicians in which we recorded a variety of textural and aleatoric sounds.”

Award-winning film, TV and game music composer, Kyle Newmaster – a self-professed STAR WARS fanatic – helped bring the pop culture phenomenon back to avid gamers in the latest LucasArts’ KINECT STAR WARS.

Born and raised in Minnesota, pursued his passion for music into college and earned an undergraduate degree in Music Performance/Education from The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and then a Masters in composition for contemporary media from the Eastman School of Music.

Newmaster's broad musical range and experience throughout his career gives him an advantage in being able to adapt to the ever-changing film/music industries.  In 2009, Newmaster arranged and orchestrated for composer Tyler Bates’ action packed score to Rob Zombie’s animated film, THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL SUPERBEASTO. Newmaster also composed additional music and orchestrated for LucasArts’ INDIANA JONES AND THE STAFF OF KINGS.

When he is not writing music, Newmaster is an active professional trumpet player who performs and records in a variety of groups.  He has performed with bands such as The Brian Setzer Orchestra and the Seth Macfarlane Big Band, and has recorded for numerous TV shows and films including FAMILY GUY, CLEVELAND, AMERICA’S GOT TALENT and AMERICAN DAD.

Of composing SOMETHING WICKED, Newcastle said, “One example of a cue that I really enjoyed writing in this style is ‘Serious Breakdown'. It's a cue that starts very haunting and tense and then builds up to a moment where the audience might sense something terrible is going to happen, but it makes a very quick transition from horror to sadness as an element about one of the characters is revealed. I really enjoy scoring scenes that require that kind of musical complexity and depth.”

SOMETHING WICKED is a current day action thriller set in a mid-size American community (Eugene, Oregon) in the Pacific Northwest. Christine and her boyfriend James have just graduated from Highland High School and are looking forward to enjoying their future together. Everything appears to be going well until Christine and James realize that she is being stalked by a psychologically tormented and obsessed young man, who in the end, will stop at nothing to be with her.

Merchant Films presents SOMETHING WICKED in theaters on April 4, 2014.  SOMETHING WICKED– Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally and Amazon Disc On Demand on April 1, 2014.
