Hollywood Records: "EMPTY MAN" music by Christopher Young and Lustmord


20th Century Studios' "The Empty Man" is a supernatural horror film based on a popular series of Boom! Studios graphic novels. After a group of teens from a small Midwestern town begin to mysteriously disappear, the locals believe it is the work of an urban legend known as The Empty Man. As a retired cop investigates and struggles to make sense of the stories, he discovers a secretive group and their attempts to summon a horrific, mystical entity, and soon his life-and the lives of those close to him-are in grave danger. Directed by David Prior from a screen story and screenplay by David Prior based on the graphic novel by Cullen Bunn, "The Empty Man" stars James Badge Dale, Marin Ireland, Stephen Root, Ron Canada, Robert Aramayo, Joel Courtney and Sasha Frolova. The film is produced by Ross Richie, p.g.a. and Stephen Christy, p.g.a.

About Christopher Young... One of the foremost talents in film music today, Golden Globe® and two-time Emmy®-nominated composer Christopher Young has scored an impressive number of features in virtually every genre, all with strikingly original music. In October 2020, Young scored "Sinister" (Blumhouse) for director Scott Derrickson, ranked as the scariest movie of all time. Young had a box-office hit in 2019 with "Pet Sematary" for Paramount Pictures. This year's crime thriller "The Empty Man," let Young experiment with different musical colors to create a gritty musical landscape.

Young re-teamed with legendary director Sam Raimi on his "50 States of Fright" series on the streaming service, Quibi. These, along with over 160 more films, embody the work of this prolific composer. Other notable credits include the spine-tingling "Hellraiser," which showcased the composer's seminal upbringing in horror; the new-techno sound of "Swordfish" displays his versatility; the resonant, genuine Celtic sounds of "The Shipping News" display his attention to detail; to the heart-pounding rhythms of "Spider-Man 3" are all evidence of his willingness to experiment.

About Lustmord... Welsh born B. Lustmord has been blurring the line between Music and Sound Design since 1980.  Originally encouraged to work with sound by industrial music founders Throbbing Gristle, he became a member of the influential industrial group SPK and, in the 1980's, owned and operated the record label Side Effects while also serving as a consultant for Mute Records.

In addition to an extensive output for film and television, Lustmord is primarily known as the foremost exponent of dense Stygian drone; ultra-low frequencies and haunting, ritualistic field recordings. He is universally credited as the originator of the 'dark ambient' music genre.

Past work has utilized source recordings that includes caves, crypts, car crashes, cosmological activity, Los Alamos National Laboratory and the site of the first ever nuclear detonation.

Lustmord performs live around the world at select locations such as appearances at disused power stations, mines, churches, film theaters and a cemetery.

Collaborations include a diverse group of artists including Tool, Melvins, Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit), Paul Haslinger, Maynard James Keenan, Chris & Cosey (Throbbing Gristle) and Karin Park amongst many others.
