FIMUCITÉ VI HAS CLOSED WITH THE APPLAUSE OF MORE THAN 5,000 PEOPLE

The Tenerife Film Music Festival (FIMUCITÉ) closed its 6th edition, on Saturday, July 14,  having received the applause of the more than 5,000 people who attended its week full of activities and concerts, held in the most important cultural venues in Santa Cruz and Arona, particularly the Night Closing Gala at Auditorio de Tenerife “Adán Martín”, which made Tenerife become the unique authorized venue to celebrate the Universal Pictures centennial. The concert was completely sold out, being an unforgettable evening that has made the social networks seethe with expressions such as “astonishing” and “electrifying”, and where the audience has highlighted, above all, the magnificent performance of the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra (OST), conducted by composer and director of FIMUCITÉ, Diego Navarro.
Faithful to its commitment to quality, this year’s Closing Gala had again the participation of soloists such as Esther Alfonso Da Costa, who amazed the audience with her vocal skills, performing the so well known piece “Fried Green Tomatoes”. The concert also recovered some of the most known soundtracks of the legendary American studios, including horror classics like “Dracula” or “Frankenstein”, as well as other more recent and popular ones like “Back to the Future” or “Conan the Barbarian”.
If Diego Navarro conducted alone this great symphonic concert, the previous one, on Friday, July 13, was mainly under the baton of the conductor and orchestrator Pete Anthony, having reached an identical success. In this case, the honoree composer was the celebrated James Newton Howard, and in both concerts, FIMUCITÉ enhanced the use of footage of the films of the repertoire, synchronized with the music live.
The staunch admirers of the festival enjoyed also the rest of the staged concerts of this unavoidable appointment with film music, like those at Guimerá Theatre in Santa Cruz, also completely sold out, or the performance, in the opening session, of the famous Spanish band Presuntos Implicados. A place was reserved as well for those interested in the process of creation of a film score,  who could converse with specialists such as Andy Hill, from Berklee School of Music, or Iván Vivas, among others, thanks to a special workshop, in collaboration with this private college of music (the number one in the world), on July 12 and 13. This workshop had almost one hundred students registered.

FIMUCITÉ has already announced the dates of its seventh edition: July 8 to 13, 2013. Further information: http://www.fimucite.com/

WATERTOWER MUSIC TO RELEASE THE DARK KNIGHT RISES SOUNDTRACK ON JULY 17

Composer Hans Zimmer Teams With Christopher Nolan For The Conclusion Of The Dark Knight Trilogy
Album Available For Pre-Order On Amazon And iTunes

(July 10, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA) – On July 17, 2012, WaterTower Music will release The Dark Knight Rises: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack at all physical and digital retailers. Academy- Award® winning composer Hans Zimmer teams for the fourth time with writer/director Christopher Nolan to create the music for the final installment of his Dark Knight Trilogy.  The CD version of the soundtrack will contain an exclusive link to unlock three bonus tracks, while a deluxe version of the soundtrack, with three additional tracks, will be available digitally. A limited edition vinyl configuration is set for release on September 4.
Following the success of his experiential app for Inception, which boasted 5 million downloads, Zimmer is preparing to unveil a new iPhone app for The Dark Knight Rises that will provide fans with a more immersive musical and sonic experience into the world of Gotham City. Details for the new Hans Zimmer app will be announced soon.
“I thought after we finished the last one [The Dark Knight], that was it,” said Zimmer.  “There was nothing else we could possibly do.  At the same time, when I started reading this script, I instantly knew that there was a whole world out there that I hadn’t even touched yet.”
“I have never worked with someone so dedicated to the idea that the real risk is in playing it safe,” said Nolan.  “Hans taught me that you sometimes have to go in what appears to be the wrong direction to discover all the possibilities, and that without exploring those possibilities you can never do anything truly exceptional.  He sets creative goals for every film that are higher than you ever thought practical…or even reachable.”
Zimmer added, “We’re comrades in arms, the way we try to cheer each other on and try to really do the best work we possibly can. And part of that is you have to be prepared to not hold back. You have to put everything into the movie.”
Hans Zimmer has scored over 100 films, grossing more than 19.6 billion dollars at the box office worldwide. He has been honored with the Academy Award®, 2 Golden Globes, 3 Grammys, an American Music Award, and a Tony Award.  In 2003, ASCAP gave him the prestigious Henry Mancini award for Lifetime Achievement for his impressive and influential body of work. He also received his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in December 2010.  Some of his most recent works include Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and Rob Marshall’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ The Dark Knight Rises is the epic conclusion to filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. The film  stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Morgan Freeman.  Christopher Nolan directed the film from a screenplay by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan, story by Christopher Nolan & David S. Goyer.  Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Charles Roven produced the film, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Kevin De La Noy and Thomas Tull serving as executive producers, and Jordan Goldberg co-producing. The Dark Knight Rises is based upon Batman characters created by Bob Kane and published by DC Comics.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Legendary Pictures, a Syncopy Production, a Film by Christopher Nolan.  Opening in theatres and IMAX on July 20, 2012, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.  The Dark Knight Rises has been rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language.
The Dark Knight Rises: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and The Dark Knight Rises: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Deluxe Version on WaterTower Music will be available digitally and in stores on July 17, 2012.
