Tom Holkenborg's The Dark Tower
Sony Classical has released The Dark Tower (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
featuring the music of the prolific Dutch composer Tom Holkenborg.
The soundtrack was released digitally on July 28 and on CD on August 4.
About the film and soundtrack, Tom Holkenborg says:
"Dark Tower is an incredible mix of horror, fantasy and western,
it inhabits a unique and singular world, human and personal, yet also other,
and the score had to try and reflect this. It was a fascinating project to work on,
and an honor trying to score the words and imagination of the great Stephen King."
There are other worlds than these. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious
and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch
to the big screen. The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an
eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey),
determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together.
The fate of the worlds is at stake – good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle
as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.
