MovieScore Media: "Short Cuts 2018" Music by Angelo Badalamenti, Nicholas Pike, Joe Kraemer, Cyrille Aufort, Anne-Kathrin Dern, Patrick Neil Doyle


MovieScore Media is proud to present its brand new initiative entitled Short Cuts 2018, a unique opportunity for fans of film music to discover the best scores written for short films of each year. The selection process involves the curation of dozens of entries from which the best ones are selected and released in digital format by MovieScore Media and on CD by Quartet Records.

Composers represented on this album range from industry veterans like Angelo Badalamenti (Twin Peaks) and Nicholas Pike (Sleepwalkers), via current names such as Joe Kraemer (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation) and Cyrille Aufort (A Royal Affair) and new, fresh talent like Anne-Kathrin Dern (The Jade Pendant) and Patrick Neil Doyle (the son of the famous Patrick Doyle). Represented with the longest selection, and also the cover image, is Anthony Lledo’s award-winning score for the Batteries Not Included-inspired sci-fi short Invaders. Each of the represented composers fashioned a score that successfully encapsulates the essence of these unique stories in a polished musical gem that not only supports the visuals, but is a satisfying listening experience in its own right.

This year, the represented genres on Short Cuts include fantasy, drama, horror, sci-fi, comedy and documentary. An interesting trend is that at least a handful of these films got their start from crowdfunding sites, so it’s especially refreshing to see that some of that budget going to recording original scores with actual musicians.

Although the tracks themselves have a different feel to them due to the diversity of both the represented genres and the composers involved, we hope this selection of the best short scores from 2018 proves that great film music is still alive and well – sometimes it’s just hiding in the smallest places!

With Short Cuts 2018, MovieScore Media ends another productive year and wishes you "God Jul" and a happy 2019!

The soundtrack has a digital release date of  December 21, 2018.  On the link below, you can view a video, featuring a suite from the score: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnpCRhhHG3c
