MICHAEL JOHN MOLLO SCORES THE REBOOT OF ‘STRIDER’ GAME SERIES


(February 24, 2014– Los Angeles, CA) – Michael John Mollo composed the original music for the Capcom release of STRIDER®. STRIDER® was developed by Double Helix and is available now as a $14.99 digital download title on PSN (PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3), Xbox Live (Xbox One, Xbox 360) and PC (Steam).

“The approach to the music for STRIDER was to take the style and intensity of the original games from the late 80s, and breathe new life into the arrangements,” said Mollo. “I chose to feature old school synths and textures juxtaposed against modern sounds to both pay homage to the past but also move the sound of STRIDER into the 21st century.”

VARÈSE SARABANDE TO RELEASE ‘NON-STOP’ – ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK


(February 19, 2014– Los Angeles, CA) – Varèse Sarabande Records will release the NON-STOP Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, available digitally and on CD February 25, 2014. The film features an original score by John Ottman (Jack the Giant Slayer, The Usual Suspects) and arrives in theaters on February 28.

Global action star Liam Neeson stars in NON-STOP, a suspense thriller played out at 40,000 feet in the air. During a transatlantic flight from New York City to London, U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) receives a series of cryptic text messages demanding that he instruct the airline to transfer $150 million into a numbered account. Until he secures the money, a passenger on his flight will be killed every 20 minutes. NON-STOP reunites Neeson with UNKNOWN director Jaume Collet-Serra and producer Joel Silver, and co-stars Golden Globe Award winner Julianne Moore.

LAKESHORE RECORDS TO RELEASE ‘GIRL ON A BICYCLE’ – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK


(February 14, 2014– Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release the GIRL ON A BICYCLE – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and through Amazon-On-Demand on February 25, 2014. The soundtrack features original music by Craig Richey (FRIENDS WITH MONEY, WONDERFUL WORLD). The film was written/directed by Jeremy Leven (writer/director of DON JUAN DEMARCO, screenwriter THE NOTEBOOK).

GIRL ON A BICYCLE provided Richey with an amazing opportunity – one that most composers only dream of, “The director [Jeremy Leven] gave me a clear request before I had even written a single note, and that was that he wanted the music to be another character in the film. He did not want the music to go unnoticed as backdrop.” Richey described. “That was great information to have, to know that I was being asked to really craft meaningful musical compositions that should become integral to the storytelling. He wanted the melodies to be fully developed, more than just leitmotifs, and so, where my approach may have tended to lean to the more minimal, or shorter melodies, he would encourage me to develop them further…to make them more memorable, to change direction, to modulate the key, to add just one more curl up or down.”

LAKESHORE RECORDS TO RELEASE ‘ENEMIES CLOSER’ – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK


(February 14, 2014– Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release the ENEMIES CLOSER – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and through Amazon-On-Demand on February 25, 2014. The soundtrack features original music by Tony Morales (HATFIELDS & MCCOYS, THE BAG MAN). “This movie is an action-packed thriller,” said Morales. “[Director] Peter Hyams wanted a high octane score that would match.”

Emmy-nominated Tony Morales began his career as a staff composer within the commercial music division of Hans Zimmer’s Media Ventures in 1998. Since that time he has gone on to compose numerous scores for film and television including Gopher Broke, which received an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Short in 2005, Hide Away, an official selection of the 2011 SXSW Film Festival, Unguarded, an ESPN documentary which was nominated for two Sports Emmys, and Hatfields & McCoys (co-composed with John Debney), which earned Morales his first Emmy-nomination.
