Rob Simonsen's Westender
29-Apr-2015 - KeepMoving Records has released the score for Westender. The movie focuses on the adventures of the titular knight Asbrey of Westender who had fallen from grace and became a mere shadow of his former self. In one moment of drunken stupor, Asbrey gambles and loses his ring, a trinket of great importance that represents his past and his future. When the knight wakes up the next morning, he tracks down his wrongdoer, a court jester who lost all his belongings to a gang of brigands. Despite facing an enemy that would have been fatal for him even in his glory days, Westender gains all his remaining power and courage for one last raid with the court jester in tow... The music for Westender was the first feature-length score of composer Rob Simonsen.

Ancient climate research has revealed that we evolved during the most volatile era since the extinction of the dinosaurs. Just like the many other kinds of human who once shared our world, we should have died away. Instead, our species survived to populate every corner of the planet, against all the odds.

Panu Aaltio's The Island Of Secrets
15-Feb-2015 - MovieScore Media travels to the Mediterranean with award-winning composer Panu Aaltio’s music for The Island of Secrets (Lomasankarit), a youth-oriented adventure film directed by Taavi Vartia. The contemporary adventure/action score pays homage to the classic 1980s blockbuster sound perfected by John Williams (the Indiana Jones films) and Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future). The music spans a great main theme for our teenaged heroes as their youthful vigor is mixed with a hint of Mediterranean-flavored escapism. “One of the main characters in the film dreams of becoming Indiana Jones when he grows up, so of course I had to play with that a bit”, explains the composer about his approach to the music.
