Lakeshore Records presents Runner Runner
14-Oct-2013 -

Featuring Original Music by Christophe Beck
Lakeshore Records has released the Runner Runner – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on October 1sth and on CD October 29, 2013. The soundtrack features original music by Christophe Beck.
“Scoring Runner Runner offered me the opportunity to blend several musical environments,” said Beck. “There is a heavy focus on electronics to represent the cutting-edge world of online poker, but once that primary bed was established, I needed something organic to clash with the synthetic.”
Princeton grad student Richie (Justin Timberlake), believing he’s been swindled, travels to Costa Rica to confront online gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Ben Affleck). Richie is seduced by Block’s promise of immense wealth, until he learns the disturbing truth about his benefactor. When the FBI tries to coerce Richie to help bring down Block, Richie faces his biggest gamble ever: attempting to outmaneuver the two forces closing in on him.

“I reached for the musical sound of Costa Rica, specifically percussion, to add some regional influence,” described Beck. “I also used a more traditional orchestral string sound, especially to reinforce the relationship between Ricky and his father. Across all of these palettes, I was especially fortunate to work with talented musicians and programmers from around the world, including a cross-continental collaboration with Swedish composing duo Deadmono, who all helped me realize the sound.”
