MovieScore Media’s latest release is Andrew Simon McAllister’s intimate, lyrical score for Nowhere Special, the critically acclaimed true story drama directed by Uberto Pasolini. The movie features James Norton as thirty-five-year-old window cleaner John, who has dedicated his life to bringing up his son, after the child's mother left them soon after giving birth. When John is given only a few months to live, he attempts to find a new, perfect family for his three-year-old son, determined to shield him from the terrible reality of the situation.
"It was very important to find the right sound and tone for the film" explains composer Andrew Simon McAllister about developing different themes for the score. "The movie itself is such a delicate and emotional story and it was important not to over score with emotional music. John is a simple character and finding the right instrumentation for him and Micheal was the key. It felt that piano and strings was too much and the guitar really resonated with them. I developed a father and a son themes that can be intertwined as their relationship develops throughout the movie culminating in the final cue "Final Journey" when John finally makes a decision on who he has chosen for give Micheal to."
