Anne-Kathrin Dern's The Jade Pendant
2-Nov-2018 - MovieScore Media has released The Jade Pendant, their first score by the talented composer Anne-Kathrin Dern. The film tells a tragic love story set against the lynching of 18 Chinese immigrants in Los Angeles, in 1871. Based on true events, the characters of The Jade Pendant find themselves in a conflict raging between Asian and American values, a central concept that is reflected in the score that was. As composer Anne-Kathrin Dern explains, a symphonic approach was the only way to score such a moving story. “The Jade Pendant is a score that relies heavily on traditional film scoring values: lyrical themes and sweeping orchestrations. These are paired with both traditional Chinese influences and Americana to represent the immigrants in the New World".

Jeff Beal's Shock And Awe
2-Aug-2018 - Today Music, Film Recordings and Varèse Sarabande have released Shock And Awe digitally and on CD with the original score by Jeff Beal. “Legendary director Rob Reiner used archival footage of George W. Bush, Colin Powell, and Donald Rumsfeld, to chilling effect, much like Oliver Stone did in JFK,” said Beal, who was greatly influenced by John Williams’ work on the aforementioned JFK. In 2003, the White House administration made a case for the invasion of Iraq. The facts didn’t add up, and only one team of journalists got the story right. Shock and Awe is the true story of these journalists, and what it is like to hunt for the truth when the stakes are life, death, and American democracy.
