Lakeshore Records: Words and Pictures and Playing It Cool [2015]


WORDS AND PICTURES – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack available digitally on January 17th and on CD March 10, 2015.  The album features original score by Paul Grabowsky (THE EYE OF THE STORM, HBO’s EMPIRE FALLS).

“One of the central plot points of WORDS AND PICTURES hinges around a poem supposedly penned by Jack (Clive Owen) that elicits a series of pictorial responses from Dina (Juliette Binoche). This poem, written in reality by the screenwriter Gerald DiPego, is a beautiful evocation of the creative impulse, the idea driving the film. The elephant in the room, especially from a composer’s point of view, is the place of music in this binary universe,” said Grabowsky. 


PLAYING IT COOL – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on February 10, 2014, and on CD March 10, 2015.  The album features original music by Jake Monaco (OUT TO KILL, KILIMANJARO) with additional music by Andrew Feltenstein & John Nau (ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES, TV's THE SPOILS OF BABYLON).

“The score is centered around a small rhythm section for a smaller, intimate feel, but there are always a few elements that have been manipulated to make it feel a little more contemporary,” Monaco said. “The vignettes throughout the film each have their own idea, from the Korean Soap opera to the story about the Serf finding love. Writing music that was not only appropriate for the time and place where the story was set, but also keeping it somewhat connected to the rest of the score was a new challenge that we had a lot of fun going back and forth on.”

Looks like to loving films... let's share them together... ahhhh!
