Graham Reynolds' Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny
11-Aug-2016 - Lakeshore Records to release the Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny soundtrack, available digitally on August 5. The CD is available only through Amazon Disc-On-Demand. The music is by composer Graham Reynolds. A feature-length documentary on the life and work of filmmaker, Richard Linklater. Produced and Directed by Louis Black (founder of SXSW Festivals and the Austin Chronicle), this documentary for PBS’ American Masters series is an unusual look at a fiercely independent style of filmmaking that arose from Austin, Texas in the 1980s/ early 90’s. It is an unconventional look at how Linklater’s films of that period, Slacker, Dazed and Confused and Before Sunrise, sparked a low budget, in your own backyard movement in this country and around the world.
Available as download. CD-R available only through Amazon Disc-On-Demand.

The movie is directed by John Goldschmidt. Lorne Balfe is a Grammy Award-winning, EMMY and BAFTA nominated film composer from Inverness, Scotland. Lorne is known for composing the scores to Dreamworks Animation’s PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR and HOME, as well as Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media’s TERMINATOR GENISYS.

Fernando Velázquez Zipi Y Zape Y La Isla Del Capitán
18-Jul-2016 - Quartet Records has released Zipi Y Zape Y La Isla Del Capitán! This Christmas, naughty twins Zip and Zap have taken their old tricks too far. Their punishment will be a business trip with their parents to a distant island. But a terrifying storm rolls in and they never reach their destination. As in the previous Zipi Y Zape Y El Club De La Canica, the film has been directed by Oskar Santos, and the score is again composed by Fernando Velázquez (Crimson Peak, The Impossible, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Hercules). Velázquez’s new orchestral tour de force reprises Zip & Zap’s memorable main theme, but also encompasses a fresh and original score – nearly 80 minutes of tunes, motifs, adventure, tension, mystery ... Never was a sequel so good! Performed by the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra and Chorus under the baton of the composer, the new Zip & Zap score is another real treat for real film music lovers.

Edy Lan's Los Parecidos
17-Jul-2016 - On the rainy night of October 2, 1968, eight characters waiting on a remote bus station for a bus heading to Mexico City start experiencing a strange phenomenon… Quartet Records has released Los Parecidos (The Similars), the second film of renowned enfant-terrible Mexican director Isaac Ezban, after the multi-award-winning film The Incident (2014). As in Ezban’s previous film, the music has been composed by young Mexican composer Edy Lan. His work for this film is a surprising and fresh approach to the fantastique, with a special homage to Bernard Herrmann. The score of The Similars is classical in style, a fully orchestral score that recalls the “good old times.” It is performed by the Filmharmonic Orchestra of Prague under the baton of Adam Klemens. The recording was produced by Grammy Award-winning engineer Mikel F. Krutzaga.

James Newton Howard's Music From The Hunger Games Saga
23-May-2016 - Silva Screen Records presents Music From The Hunger Games Saga. Performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic and composed by James Newton-Howard, the compilation gives an organic overview of the understated yet lush soundtrack to the dystopian world of Panem. The cut-throat action makes up a large part of the story, yet Howard achieves something singular here by producing an admirably restrained score. From the haunting and rustic melody of The Hunger Games theme, and spine-tingling centrepiece The Hanging Tree, to the wonderful Air Raid Drill driven by throbbing string ostinatos and soaring voices and ironic and non-triumphant Victory, this is a score that utilises strings, guitar, dobro, choirs and solo voices to create a singular sound world in counterpoint to images.

Georges Delerue's Joe Versus The Volcano
22-May-2016 - Varèse Sarabande's Masters Film Music returns with “The Big Woo” edition of Georges Delerue’s absolutely magnificent score for Joe Versus The Volcano. Perhaps an unlikely place to find one of Delerue’s greatest scores of all-time, but that’s what Joe is. Marooned Without You is a classic Delerue melody and it is used so wonderfully throughout the film. But there is also some wonderful breezy orchestral jazz, the epic The Storm and The Rescue, beautiful strings and winds. This is truly a Delerue must–have. It has been out of print for many years. Varèse Sarabande wanted to bring it back, but they had released almost the entire score the first time. There were a few short cues they could add, plus an alternate version of the big The Storm and The Rescue cue. Probably most-importantly is the improvement they have made in the sound from the original CD from 14 years ago.
