Armand Amar's Human
3-Oct-2015 - Warner Classics has released Human, the highly-anticipated follow-up to Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s HOME. This new documentary – with its stunning aerial landscapes and images of people from all walks of life – explores the harsh and beautiful truths of humanity on this planet. Such a powerful subject needs a score that expresses the emotional core of the film. Director and cinematographer Arthus-Bertrand chose longtime collaborator Armand Amar, composer of the HOME soundtrack, to voice the vast ideas of HUMAN in the truly universal language of music. The epic, minimalist orchestral strings, exotic percussion and singers and instrumentalists drawn together from diverse ethnic and musical backgrounds are inseparable from the film’s unforgettable images. The original soundtrack features no fewer than 47 soloists including Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour, Divna and Ravid Kahalani.
Available from Amazon France.     
Frans Bak's Doctor Foster
2-Oct-2015 - Silva Screen Records has released Doctor Foster, composer Frans Bak’s score to BBC One’s gripping new five-part drama series, penned by award-winning playwright Mike Bartlett. Frans Bak is a classically trained Danish composer best known for his mesmerising score for The Killing. Thomas Golubic, music supervisor on Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and the Killing comments: “The sophistication and the beauty of Frans’ music really lets you feel the different nuances of fear and intrigue in compelling ways that are then personalised by the different characters which are introduced.” Doctor Foster is a drama with an intelligent, empowered woman at its centre - one with a huge battle on her hands, both in her personal and professional life.

Gabriel Yared's Sarah / Désordre
13-Sep-2015 - Music Box Records presents two original motion picture soundtracks composed by Gabriel Yared and mostly unreleased on CD: Sarah (1983) directed by Maurice Dugowson and Désordre (1986) directed by Olivier Assayas. These two scores show Gabriel Yared’s interest in innovative ambiances and sound in his early years of film composing. For Sarah, Gabriel Yared composed his score around the second movement of Robert Schumann’s Piano Quintet in E-flat major, Op. 44 with its numerous variations. L'anniversaire is Sarah’s other great theme, associated with the character of Gabrielle Lazure. For Désordre, Gabriel Yared composed his score in a classical vein, dominated by cello. The music becomes the internal voice of the characters, expressing their feelings.

Nathan Halpern's One & Two
11-Sep-2015 - Lakeshore Records has released the soundtrack of One & Two digitally on August 28, 2015. The film features original music by Nathan Halpern, his second collaboration with director Andrew Droz Palermo. Siblings Eva (MAD MEN’S Kiernan Shipka) and Zac (Homeland’s Timothée Chalamet) live cut off from society in a remote farmhouse, their insular world bounded by an enormous wall. But as the pair begins exploring their extraordinary, potentially dangerous supernatural abilities, a mystery arises: is their father trying to keep the world out, or to keep his children in? "At its heart, One & Two is a fairytale - albeit a chilling one,” said Halpern. “Thematically, classic fairytales speak to the most elemental oppositions of childhood: good and evil, love and abandonment, innocence and experience.”

In the early 1990’s I wrote and recorded a score for The Crow graphic novel.” WEDNESDAY marks a stylistic change for Bergin, who is usually associated with dark and gloomy work.

John Schuermann's The Creep Behind The Camera
25-Aug-2015 - MovieScore Media continues its exploration of fascinating documentaries with the docudrama The Creep Behind The Camera, a shocking exposé written and directed by Pete Schuermann about notorious cult filmmaker Art J. Nelson. The music is by John Schuermann. Nelson wrote, produced, edited and starred in The Creeping Terror, a low-budget 1964 horror about a monster consuming teenagers. The worst horror of all times was plagued by dozens of production problems, most notoriously Art’s dishonest methods of obtaining financing that lead to the director’s disappearance from filmmaking. Schuermann’s film not only unearths what happened to the gonzo filmmaker, but presents his psychological issues that earned him the nickname “Creep.”
Michael Kamen's The Last Boy Scout
24-Aug-2015 - La-La Land Records and Warner Bros. present the world premiere release of Michael Kamen’s original motion picture score to the 1991 Warner Bros. action/thriller The Last Boy Scout.

Noir-ish suspense, black comedy, violent action – Kamen’s score handles it all with aplomb, even as it cuts against the action/blockbuster grain with its soulful and understated motifs. This limited edition release of 3000 copies also contains Bonus Tracks, as well as the rousing faux-primetime-network-football anthem featured in the film, “Friday Night’s a Great Night for Football,” performed by Bill Medley.

Pedro Bromfman's Narcos
21-Aug-2015 - Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack for the Netflix original series Narcos digitally on August 21st and on CD later this year. The album features the film’s original score by Pedro Bromfman and the main title theme song “Tuyo” by Brazilian artist Rodrigo Amarante. “Conceptually speaking, I had this idea that the music for NARCOS could be somewhat inspired by Sergio Leone’s westerns,” said Bromfman. “Colombia in the late 80’s and early 90’s reminded me of those towns you see in Westerns, dominated by a gang of outlaws. In those films, someone from out of town will usually come and help the locals defeat the bad guys. As people watch Narcos they’ll be able to see the parallels I drew, however in Colombia they had a much bigger and more complicated situation.”
