MovieScore Media... Brings Us Some of the Best Score Music!


Travel to the Mediterranean with award-winning composer Panu Aaltio’s music for The Island of Secrets, a youth-oriented adventure film directed by Taavi Vartia. The contemporary adventure/action score pays homage to the classic 1980s blockbuster sound perfected by John Williams (the Indiana Jones films) and Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future). The music spans a great main theme for our teenaged heroes as their youthful vigor is mixed with a hint of Mediterranean-flavored escapism. “One of the main characters in the film dreams of becoming Indiana Jones when he grows up, so of course I had to play with that a bit”, explains the composer about his approach to the music.

The Island of Secrets marks the fourth MovieScore Media release with  Panu Aaltio. Their latest collaboration was Tale of a Forest (2012) which was voted as the Best Original Documentary Score by the International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA). His other previous credits on MovieScore Media are The Home of Dark Butterflies (2009), Finland's official submission for the 2009 Academy Awards and the epic Dawn of the Dragonslayer (2009). Training as a cellist since the age of six, Aaltio also studied music technology and classical composition at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and film music at the University of Southern California where he received the Harry Warren Scholarship for Excellence in Film Scoring. He is currently working on Tale of a Lake (2015), a sequel to the Tale of a Forest.
 


Dominik Scherrer’s music for Golden Globe nominated The Missing, whose pilot episode attracted almost 6 million viewers on BBC 1. The story follows Tony Hughes (James Nesbitt), a man devastated by the abduction of his son Oliver during a family vacation in France. He becomes obsessed and spends years searching for him even though his frantic investigation ruins his marriage to Emily (Frances O'Connor). French police detective Julien Baptiste (Tcheky Karyo) is also haunted by the disappearance; he may be retired, but he is also haunted by the notion that Oliver could still be alive. Told using a fascinating narrative puzzle with several time frames, The Missing explores the impact of a child's abduction, the emotional cost of obsession and letting go.

Scherrer’s suspenseful yet lyrical accompaniment covers the investigation after Oliver; the hauntingly memorable title sequence incorporates the song “Come Home" by Belgian post-rock band Amatorski - the full version of the song as well as Scherrer’s arrangement for the opening are both available on the album. “Thematically our emotional core was the pain of the loss of the child” explains the composer. “The story is about the fallout of this event, and how far, into many corners, in several countries, this can reach. Director Tom Shankland, made an analogy: butterflies. They start as one thing then hatch and become another creature. Hence I made a whole series of interrelated themes relating to butterflies: "Butterflies", "Actias Luna", Colias Croceus".
