SPARKS & SHADOWS TO RELEASE ‘BLACK SAILS’ SOUNDTRACK


“Gorgeous, cool, and thematically on target, these credits are like a haunting dream you might have after touring a sculpture museum and hitting Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride on the same day. And that theme! Arguably McCreary’s best, and that’s saying quite a bit.” – James Hibberd (Entertainment Weekly)

(January 17, 2014 – Culver City, CA) Sparks & Shadows, the boutique record label founded by composer Bear McCreary, announces the release of the BLACK SAILS – A Starz Original Series Soundtrack digitally and on CD on January 28. The soundtrack features original music by Emmy® Award winning composer Bear McCreary. The series teams marks the 2nd collaboration between McCreary and series Executive Producer/Co-creator Jonathan E. Steinberg. Though the two worked closely on a grand orchestral score for Human Target, McCreary and Steinberg both knew a similar approach wasn’t going to be right for BLACK SAILS. “While I have worked with Bear before building big, thematic orchestral scores, this show needed something almost exactly the opposite,” said Steinberg. “Stripped down. Gritty. A sound and a musical language that would be the last thing you’d expect to hear in a pirate movie, yet something that could still convey the raw human emotion of the story we wanted to tell. And Bear found it.”

‘THE LEGEND OF HERCULES’, FEATURING ORIGINAL MUSIC BY TUOMAS KANTELINEN, IN THEATERS JANUARY 10, 2014


Tuomas Kantelinen

(January 6, 2014 – Los Angeles, CA) – The Summit Entertainment film THE LEGEND OF HERCULES, featuring original music composed by Tuomas Kantelinen (PURGE, THE ITALIAN KEY) will be released in theaters on January 10, 2014.  The film is the second pairing of Kantelinen for director Renny Harlin, with whom he previously teamed on MINDHUNTERS.

“I was ecstatic to get to tackle the score of a movie that plays on such a grand scale,” said Kantelinen. “The film has both huge action scenes – where one can go crazy with brass and percussion – and a beautiful love story, with opportunities for a softer musical approach.  From the get-go Renny wanted a more ‘old-fashioned’ score in the vein of classic swords and sandals movies, and as a big fan of orchestral music I was more than happy to go with his idea.”

PLAZA MAYOR TO RELEASE THE SOUNDTRACKS FOR ‘CHINESE ZODIAC’ AND ‘THE PATRIOT YUE FEI’, COMPOSED BY NATHAN WANG


THE PATRIOT YUE FEI Currently Available on iTunes
CHINESE ZODIAC To Be Released On January 7th

(January 6, 2014– Los Angeles, CA) – International publishing company Plaza Mayor Company, Ltd. is releasing to soundtracks for two Asian productions, composed by Asian-American composer Nathan Wang.  THE PATRIOT YUE FEI– Original Soundtrack is currently available digitally via iTunes, and CHINESE ZODIAC – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, which will be released digitally on January 7, 2014.

CHINESE ZODIAC is the fourth movie I have scored for Jackie [Chan], and it never gets easier! In fact, this was by far the most difficult one to compose, because there was a lot of collaboration going on in determining the direction of many cues,” said Wang. “Many of my favorite pieces are here in this digital soundtrack. I was very fortunate to find a phenomenal jazz band — the RJ Band led by Michael Kern. They are based in Shanghai, and we recorded together for two days, almost 11 hours a day, non-stop!! I’m honored that I had an opportunity to work with them.”

SONY MUSIC RELEASES ‘AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY’ ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK


A NEW SONG BY JD AND THE STRAIGHT SHOT, TRACKS BY BON IVER, ERIC CLAPTON, KINGS OF LEON & BILLY SQUIER, COMPOSITIONS BY GUSTAVO SANTAOLALLA

Sony Music is releasing the original motion picture soundtrack of August: Osage County, featuring songs specially written for the film by Kings of Leon and by JD and the Straight Shot, as well as celebrated songs by Bon Iver, Eric Clapton and Billy Squier. These tracks are backed up by new music composed by Gustavo Santaolalla and others. The original motion picture soundtrack of August: Osage County is available on January 7, 2014.

The songs on the album make up an irresistible compilation. “Last Mile Home” by Kings of Leon, a soulful track with an understated guitar accompaniment, was specially written for the film by the band. The acoustic version of it was used for the end titles and the track featured on the album. The simple, moving “Violet’s Song” by JD and the Straight Shot was also recorded for the movie, and as a special treat the soundtrack includes the pleasure of hearing the actor Benedict Cumberbatch perform as a singer (“Can’t Keep It Inside”). The album opens with eerie electronic echoings in “Himmon TX” by Bon Iver, with the smoky voice of the indie group’s frontman Justin Vernon. The third track is an absolute classic of country blues, “Lay Down Sally” from Eric Clapton’s album Slow Hand. A further well-known number is Billy Squiers’ hard-rock “The Stroke”. These veterans are joined by an up-and-coming star: the American singer-songwriter John Fullbright showcases his drawly Oklahoma vowels in the laid-back but energised “Gawd Above”.
