WaterTower Music: "Ocean's 8" Music by Daniel Pemberton


In five years, the critically-acclaimed composer was named “Discovery of The Year” at the World Soundtrack Awards; collaborated with iconic filmmakers and received Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations.  Pemberton’s original musical voice has included included hybrid choral, orchestral, electronic, opera, to rock.  His credits include Steve Jobs (2015), The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015), King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), Stephen Gaghan’s GOLD (2016) Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World (2017), and Aaron Sorkin’s Molly Game (2017).   All the Money In The World marked the third time Pemberton had collaborated with director Ridley Scott. In terms of Molly’s Game, Aaron Sorkin would always mention Pemberton’s score on panels for Steve Jobs. Pemberton’s mix of opera and electronics for Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs (starring Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet) awarded him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Score; the next year Pemberton would receive a Golden Globe nomination for “Best Song” for the Rock/Punk song “Gold” for the film Gold, he co-wrote with Dangermouse and Iggy Pop.

Five years, eight months, 12 days...and counting. That’s how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock)—just released from prison—has been concocting the greatest heist of her storied career.  She knows what it’s going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her former partner-in-crime Lou (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Kaling); street con Constance (Awkwafina); expert fence Tammy (Paulson); hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna); and fashion designer Rose Weil (Bonham Carter).
 
The target is $150 million in diamonds—diamonds that will adorn the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Hathaway), who will be center stage at the event of the year, the Met Gala.  Their plan appears rock solid, but it will need to be flawless if the team is to get in and get away—all in plain sight.
