(West Hollywood, CA) November 16, 2012 — Two- time Academy-Award® nominee Marco Beltrami, the composer of the recent Clint Eastwood film Trouble with the Curve, was honored with Best Original Score- Feature Film for Fox Searchlight’s The Sessions at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards on November 15, 2012 at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood. Beltrami won over an impressive list of fellow nominees including Alexandre Desplat, John Williams, and Thomas Newman.
The Sessions tells the story of a man who lived most of his life in an iron lung who is determined – at age 38 – to lose his virginity. Beltrami created an intimate and classically oriented score. He incorporated meditative elements to embody the spirit of the story, including playing the rims of crystal bowls. The Sessions – The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from Lakeshore Records is available digitally now and in stores.
