Zacarías M. de la Riva's Automata
26-Oct-2014 - MovieScore Media has released Zacarías M. de da Riva’s soundtrack for Automata, the new sci-fi thriller starring Antonio Banderas, who plays the role of Jacq Vaucan, a disillusioned insurance agent of ROC robotics corporation whose job involves the investigation of manipulated robots.  Though it is set in the future overrun with robots, Automata features a rich, orchestral score with a haunting choir lending an epic quality to the story. As the composer explains: ”The movie moves constantly between two different worlds. The world of the sci-fi thriller and the world of the philosophical and metaphysical. The first one deals with Jacq Vaucan’s investigation of malfunctioning robots, the second one deals with the essence of the being and his reality, human or robotic. Music had to resolute this dichotomy, make the coexistence of this two different worlds possible.”

The Essential Disney Collection
21-Oct-2014 - Silva Screen Records will release The Essential Disney Collection. "There's a terrific power to music. You can run any of these pictures and they'd be dragging and boring, but the minute you put music behind them, they have life and vitality they don't get any other way." Thus spoke Walt Disney with a mantra that in almost a century of film production has been rigidly applied. From Mickey Mouse's joyfully whistled tune in Steamboat Bill Jr. through to Frozen's Let It Go, music has always been one of the key elements of every Disney film. With this release the Stars Of The London Stage pay tribute to 19 of the very best songs from cinema's greatest animation studio with particular emphasis on the last 25 years. Performers featured include Louise Dearman whose West End roles include Wicked and KIss Me Kate and Helen Hobson who has appeared in Mamma Mia! and Aspects Of Love.
Available from Silva ScreenAmazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
Steven Price's Fury
12-Oct-2014 - Varèse Sarabande has released the score for Fury. It  started in April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany. This is the first new score from composer Steven Price since his Academy Award® win for Gravity.
Available from, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
Gianfranco Plenizio's Django 2: Il Grande Ritorno
10-Oct-2014 - Kronos Records has released Django 2: Il Grande Ritorno, a 1987 Italian spaghetti western film directed by Nello Rossati. The musical score for this spaghetti sagebrush saga is by Gianfranco Plenizio, who wrote a multi themed and very colorful and eclectic score for the movie. The composer employs a strong trumpet theme for the gunfight scene that takes place at the beginning of the movie that is reminiscent of the style of composers such as Morricone, Micalizzi and Francesco De Masi. Plenzio also effectively employs a wordless female soprano voice on a number of cues again evoking the style of Morricone when he turned to Edda dell Orso on so many of his western scores.

Ted Masur’s Bad Milo!
4-Oct-2014 - Screamworks Records has released Ted Masur’s acclaimed music for Bad Milo!, the quirky cult horror co-written and directed by Jacob Vaughan. The score for Bad Milo! features not one, but two major themes for the title character: one broken, detuned lullabye for his sweet side and one devilishly malicious for Milo’s true colors – this latter motif explodes into choral madness for Milo’s kidnapping of Sarah. There’s a monotonous secondary theme based on a clock-motive, representing Duncan’s mundane life until his first “meeting“ with Milo. But every horror score has some warm moments and this is where Bad Milo! really excels: featuring a distant theme for Duncan’s father and one for his family, the score shows that even after the demon-filled madness of the plot, there’s still true love that can overcome any obstacle.

John Barry's Mister Moses
26-Sep-2014 - Prometheus Records has released John Barry's complete score to Mister Moses. The latter-day Mister (Joe) Moses is a snake-oil pitchman who is chased out of an African village and is found, literally, in the bull-rushes by Julie Anderson, daughter of missionary Reverand Anderson who has learned that he is a diamond smuggler and threatens to expose him to her fiancé Robert; the district commissioner if he doesn’t help lead an African native tribe to their new homeland. Newly recorded in stunning and dynamic digital sound. Performed by the 75-piece City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Nic Raine. New score & orchestration reconstructed by Nic Raine, who was principal orchestrator to John Barry on numerous films and albums.

Stephen Rennicks' Frank
24-Sep-2014 - Silva Screen has released the score for Frank. Fast becoming a cult hit, Leonard Abrahamson’s fantastical black comedy, Frank, features Michael Fassbender as the masked leader of a doomed avant-rock group. Not surprising then, that Stephen Rennicks’s song based soundtrack is central to the film, with the actors playing their instruments live. Rennicks leads the cast through indie songs ranging from the hilarious “Franks Most Likeable Song – People Will Love it!” to the heartbreaking indie-classic “I Love You All”. The film is inspired by cult comedy creation Frank Sidebottom, as well as underground music legends Captain Beefheart and Daniel Johnston. The bands’ live performances often descend into chaos and the band members ooze eccentricity.
Available from, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
Bruno Coulais' Gemma Bovery
22-Sep-2014 - Milan Records has released the score for Gemma Bovery. The story: Martin, an ex-Parisian well-heeled hipster passionate about Gustave Flaubert who settled into a Norman village as a baker, sees an English couple moving into a small farm nearby. Not only are the names of the new arrivals Gemma and Charles Bovery, but their behavior also seems to be inspired by Flaubert's heroes. For the artist in Martin, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet Flaubert's characters in the real life. But the lovely Gemma Bovery has not read the classics and lives her own life. The music is by Bruno Coulais.
The score is available from Amazon France.
Justin Hurwitz/Tim Simonec's Whiplash
12-Sep-2014 - Varèse Sarabande will release Whiplash. It's the story of Andrew Neyman, who is a 19-year-old jazz drummer, dreaming of greatness but unsure if his dream will ever come true. Haunted by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew is determined to rise to the top of the country’s most elite music conservatory. The Whiplash soundtrack consists of 24 tracks sequenced in 3 distinct parts: Original jazz songs written for the film, original underscore written for the film, and classic jazz standards by Stan Getz, Duke Ellington and more. There are also choice snippets of dialog included on the soundtrack that sum up the narrative of the film and help to put the music in context (à la Pulp Fiction). The Original Score & Big Band Songs were created by Justin Hurwitz. The original jazz songs were created by Grammy®-nominated composer Tim Simonec.
Available from, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
David Shire's Rear Window
11-Sep-2014 - MovieScore Media has released in its Discovery Collection the music for the 1998 television version of Rear Window. Designed as an acting vehicle for the recently wheelchair-bound Christopher Reeve, The ABC production kept the basic premise of the original Hitchcock movie: wheelchair-bound Jason Kemp suspects that his neighbor Julian Thorpe murdered his wife, but nobody believes him. David Shire’s music features a number of brilliant themes for the main characters. Jason’s theme was inspired by Baroque fugues as the counterpoints represent the hero’s attempt to rebuild his nervous system. The film’s main villain is represented by a distant metallic hit, a choice related to the man’s profession. The third key theme for “the other woman” is represented by the EWI, an electric wind instrument featuring a deliberately fake representation of a saxophone.

Brian Tyler's The Expendables 3
9-Sep-2014 - La-La Land Records and Lionsgate present the explosive original motion picture score to the all-new feature film in the smash hit Expendables saga, The Expendables 3, starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Terry Crews and an assemblage of the most iconic action stars in the business! Acclaimed composer Brian Tyler re-enlists with the Expendables franchise and deploys his most full-throttle score yet, creating the perfect musical backdrop for this highly-anticipated, star-studded action block-buster! It’s big, bold and thrilling orchestral action music of the highest order! Score produced by Brian Tyler and Matthew Llewellyn, mastered by Patricia Sullivan, with art design by Dan Goldwasser.

Carl Davis' King David
8-Sep-2014 - Also from Quartet Records comes the world premiere release of a mammoth score composed by Carl Davis for the 1985 Biblical epic King David from Paramount Pictures. Performed by The London Symphony Orchestra under the baton of the composer, this 2-CD set (for the price of one) contains all the material conceived by Davis for the film, including several alternates (many involving choir). Davis adopted a bold and somewhat austere approach for his score, resulting in haunting, powerful music that is somewhat off the beaten path for Biblical epics. The score features many original source dances and songs as well as dramatic underscore.

Michael Gore's Terms Of Endearment
8-Sep-2014 - Quartet Records presents the premiere release of the complete score of Terms Of Endearment, a true Hollywood classic from the eighties. Michael Gore wrote a bittersweet score dominated by a memorable main theme that mixes love, drama and a kind of joie de vivre. Richard Hazard orchestrated and conducted the entire score, which became an eighties film music classic. This 2-CD set presentation includes on disc one the complete score with every cue written by Gore for the movie, presented in film order (including several alternate versions), and the Richard Hazard recordings of song standards not included in the final print of the movie (replaced – in some cases – by the original versions). On disc two a newly remastered version of the original Capitol album is offered, which has been out of print for years. Its concept – and the inclusion of the original songs – makes it an important souvenir of the film.

Robert J. Kral's Batman: Assault On Arkham
28-Aug-2014 - La-La Land Records, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics have released the DC Universe Animated Movie, Batman: Assault On Arkham. Composer Robert J. Kral returns again to the DC Universe with a dynamite action/thriller score that is the perfect compliment to this action-packed tale, based on the hit video game series, in which Batman infiltrates The Suicide Squad, who have been tasked with killing The Riddler. Scored like a contemporary, urban crime thriller by way of the Batman universe, this is a great listen! Produced by Robert J. Kral and MV Gerhard and mastered by James Nelson, this is a special limited edition of 1500 copies features four exclusive tracks not available on the digital download version and liner notes from co-director Jay Oliva. Bat-riffic art design is courtesy of Dan Goldwasser.
Available from La-La Land Records.
Piero Piccioni's Mafioso... And Other Great Piccioni Scores
26-Aug-2014 - él Records has released Mafioso... And Other Great Piccioni Scores. Piero Piccioni's innate versatility and eclecticism is showcased by the scores featured on this CD. The centrepiece is his music for Alberto Lattuada's Mafioso, a 1962 black comedy. Also featured is music from the television documentaries Il Mondo di Notte, Mauro Bolognini's Senilita - an intense romance set in Trieste, which finds the lovely Claudia Cardinale alongside a desperate Tony Franciosa. The finishing touch is the long deleted Piero Piccioni Presenta Lydia MacDonald album. MacDonald - with Edda Dell 'Orso and Mina - was one of the composer's favourite female vocalists. She famously performed Mr. Dante Fontana and Richmond Bridge on Fumo di Londra, and her distinctive, sensual voice illuminated any number of Piccioni''s scores.
Available from, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
Henrik Skram's Ballet Boys
22-Aug-2014 - MovieScore Media teams up with Norwegian composer Henrik Skram for the third time to bring the composer’s latest score for Ballet Boys. This documentary employs a fly-on-the-wall approach chronicling the lives of three Norwegian boys (Torgeir, Syvert and Lukas) who share a passion for ballet dancing. While studying the art of ballet as an extracurricular activity, the boys share many disappointments, victories, and even their first loves. By the end of the movie, all three of them must make an important decision whether they want to pursue their passion on a professional level, or keep it as a hobby while focusing on their higher education. Recorded in Macedonia with the F.A.M.E. orchestra, Skram’s score for Ballet Boys has the dual purpose of being fit for the scenes of training and practicing, but also to highlight the more dramatic events in the boys’ life.

Nicholas Carras’ The Doll Squad
18-Aug-2014 - Monstrous Movie Music has released The Doll Squad. Rumored to be the inspiration for the TV series Charlie’s Angels, Ted Mikels’ 1973 sexy-girl spy adventure stars the delectable Francine York and a bevy of amply bosomed assistants. Nicholas Carras’ rousing underscore is over 50 minutes of great seventies action sounds, exotic island melodies, and all sorts of spy music, including an homage to James Bond. Although it’s an escapist yarn, the composer treated the movie as if it were serious business, which adds to the fun. If you're familiar with Carras' work via previous MMM releases, The Doll Squad offers a whole ‘nother approach from this very gifted composer. The original cover art is by the amazing Robert Aragon, and a 20-page booklet augments the release! 
Available from Monstrous Movie Music.
