Mark Isham's Warrior released...
Lakeshore Records has announced the release of Warrior -- Original
Motion Picture Soundtrack. The album, featuring original score by
Mark Isham (Crash, A River Runs Through It) and the song “About
Today” by acclaimed band The National, was available digitally on
August 29th and in stores on September 13, 2011.
The film has been released by Lionsgate® on September 9, 2011.
Warrior is a powerful story of redemption for a family involved in
mixed martial arts. As a result, “the score for Warrior has an
extremely wide dynamic and dramatic range; perhaps more than any other
score I've composed,” said Isham. “While driven mostly by guitars,
performed in a wide range of styles it also features modern minimalist
cello as well as a dark and expressive orchestra of low brass and strings.
These elements are joined by a large and powerful percussion section
which galvanizes the music into exhilarating highs and frenetic lows.”
Said Lionsgate’s Head of Film Music Tracy McKnight of the score,
“Mark Isham has written a truly unforgettable score that captures the
spirit of the film perfectly by accentuating the emotional family dynamic
and simultaneously elevating the vivid action sequences.”
