Lakeshore Records: "THE UNFAMILIAR" music by Walter Mair


British Army Doctor, Elizabeth “Izzy” Cormack, returns from war to rekindle her relationship with her estranged family. Izzy notices numerous inexplicable activities in her house that her husband believes are due to her suffering from PTSD as a consequence of war. Izzy militantly pieces the daunting puzzle together to reveal a terrifying, invisible enemy that has infested her entire family. In a heroic attempt to save her family, she is pulled into a dark underworld in Hawaii to explore ancient mythology.
 
The film directed by Henk Pretorius and starring Jemima West and Christopher Dane was released by Dark Matter Studios on August 21.

Walter Mair is an Ivor Novello-nominated and Telly Award-winning composer known for his captivating scores ranging from epic orchestrations recorded with 80-piece choirs to intimate, small ensemble and hybrid electronic pieces that have graced a diverse mix of feature films, documentaries, television dramas, narrative-driven interactive entertainment and video games. In 2020, he received two Telly awards for “Best Original Music” for his scores to the BAFTA “EE Mobile Game of the Year” Call of Duty: Mobile as well as his score to the Netflix docuseries Formula 1: Drive to Survive. His most recent credits include the psychological horror film The Unfamiliar, the coming-of-age drama Iceland is Best, and the action-thriller Knuckledust.
 
Other credits include Oliver Hirschbiegel’s International cold war mini-series for Netflix and ZDF, The Same Sky, which premiered at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival, the Universal Pictures’ documentary feature Ronaldo, the Three Penny Opera by Joachim Lang, based on Berthold Brecht’s Beggar’s Opera, Lucid directed by Adam Morse, 3 Way Junction, and Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River starring Saorise Ronan, Matt Smith, Christina Hendricks, and Eva Mendes. His music can also be heard in Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto video games, Sony’s sci-fi franchise Killzone, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction and The Creative Assembly’s Total War series.
 
Walter believes that the main principle of creativity is to come up with genuine sounds, and he enjoys experimenting and creating unique sonic worlds for each of his projects, using his extensive collection of analog digital synths and blending live orchestral arrangements with experimental post-recording techniques.

 
In 2006, Walter moved from his native Austria to London to open his own state-of-the-art recording studio in SoHo and is a member of both BAFTA and BASCA.
