Lakeshore Records is set to release Stowaway—Music From The Netflix Film featuring music by Volker Bertelmann (The Old Guard, Lion, Your Honor), digitally on April 23. The acclaimed pianist, composer, and experimental musician utilizes piano, strings and orchestra to explore a wide range of sounds that provide a rich backdrop to the mission to Mars thriller. The film directed by Joe Penna and co-written by Penna and Ryan Morrison, and produced by XYZ Films, Augenschein Filmproduktion and Rise Pictures, and starring Anna Kendrick, Toni Collette, Daniel Dae Kim & Shamier Anderson, streams on Netflix April 22.
On a mission headed to Mars, an unintended stowaway accidentally causes severe damage to the spaceship’s life support systems. Facing dwindling resources and a potentially fatal outcome, the crew is forced to make an impossible decision.
Says Bertelmann, “Working on Stowaway and collaborating with director Joe Penna was a special experience in many respects: Joe, who is a musician himself, gave me a lot of freedom to explore different sounds and we had a joint understanding of the purposes the music should serve. This facilitated the compositional process, which was extremely helpful given the considerable amount of music the film needed. The music for Stowaway is one of my favorite scores so far.”
