16/11/17 - Stephen King Soundtrack Collection

news picVarèse Sarabande Records has released a new 8-CD box set celebrating the music of four classic Stephen King titles - Dreamcatcher, Firestarter, The Stand and The Shining.

The limited edition Stephen King Soundtrack Collection box set (1500 units) is designed to pay tribute to Stephen King paperbacks with a 24-page bound booklet.

Two beloved titles are featuring expanded editions. The 1994 post-apocalyptic mini-series The Stand, earned prolific composer W. G. Snuffy Walden an EMMY® nomination that year. 2003’s Dreamcatcher features original music by Academy Award® nominee James Newton Howard. Both are being released as 2-CD deluxe editions.

One of the earlier Stephen King books to be adapted into film, Firestarter features original music by Tangerine Dream – and is being reissued for the first time in almost 15 years.

The 1997 three-part mini-series The Shining is being presented on a 3-CD set, one disc for each night of the special event series. The origin of the miniseries is attributed to King’s dissatisfaction with the 1980 adaptation directed by Stanley Kubrick. The mini-series was shot at The Stanley Hotel (Estes Park, CO) – which was the hotel that inspired King to write the book in the first place. The Nicholas Pike-penned score is being released commercially for the first time. Housing the collection is a 24-page bound booklet, featuring liner notes by Randall D. Larson with original art by Shawn Conn.

08/11/17 - Alias Grace soundtrack release

news picLakeshore Records has released Mychael Danna and Jeff Danna's original score for Alias Grace.

Alias Grace is based on a novel of the same name written by celebrated author Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale) of a true story that took place in Canada in 1843,” said Mychael Danna. “We wanted the score to mirror the formal rigidity of British Colonial 19th Century society.”

The story of Alias Grace follows Grace Marks, a poor, young Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who, along with stable hand James McDermott, was convicted of the brutal murders of their employer, Thomas Kinnear, and his housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery, in 1843. James was hanged while Grace was sentenced to life imprisonment.

Grace became one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of 1840s Canada for her supposed role in the sensational double murder, and was eventually exonerated after 30 years in jail. Her conviction was controversial, and sparked much debate about whether Grace was actually involved in the murder, or merely an unwitting accessory.

“We chose a chamber group of virtuosic musicians to lay out the complicated fabric of the musical world of Alias Grace,” Jeff Danna explained. “There was interwoven string parts, often with one player per part in the traditional way, coloured by fleeting woodwinds, piano and even the occasional church organ - all of it underlined with a dark thread of mystery and growing doom as we slowly move towards the inevitable violence of the crime.”

07/11/17 - Murder on the Orient Express score

news picSony Classical has released Patrick Doyle's original score for Murder on the Orient Express on CD and digital download.

The soundtrack also includes a song performed by Michelle Pfeiffer with lyrics by Kenneth Branagh.

Patrick Doyle says about the score: “The outstanding performances in the film were inspiring in helping me compose its many motifs and themes. The song Ken and I wrote came much later in the process – it features the harmonies, thematic material and heart of the film – allowing it to grow organically out of the score at the end of the movie.”

What starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told. From the novel by best-selling author Agatha Christie, Murder on the Orient Express tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again.

Kenneth Branagh directs and leads an all-star cast including Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad.
