Mica Levi's Jackie
26-Dec-2016 - From Milan Records comes the score for Jackie, the upcoming biographical film from Chilean director Pablo Larraín. The movie follows Jacqueline Kennedy from the days when she was First Lady of the White House to the aftermath of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Critically lauded since its debut at the Venice Film Festival where it won the Best Screenplay Award, Jackie also received the Platform Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival. The score was composed by experimental British musician Mica Levi, best known for her ethereal score to 2013’s sleeper hit “Under the Skin”. Mournful and eerie with a touch of the surreal, Levi has delivered an unmistakable musical tapestry every bit as iconic as Jackie O herself.

Christopher Wong's Yellow Flowers On The Green Grass
17-Dec-2016 - MovieScore Media has released Vietnam’s official submission Yellow Flowers On The Green Grass with music by Christopher Wong to the 2016 Academy Awards. Directed by Victor Vu, Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass is based on a novel that takes place in the late 1980s, telling the tale of 12-year old Thieu and his 7-year old brother Tuong whose life gets complicated when a girl starts to break up the bond between them. “This is the first drama we have worked on together since First Morning, Victor’s debut feature made almost 15 years ago.” recalls Wong about the score. “In returning to making a drama with a more artistic and less commercial style, we had to unlearn some of the instincts we’d developed in making thrillers. I felt the style of the film afforded the opportunity to write a lyrical, melody driven orchestral score."

Lesley Barber's Manchester By The Sea
5-Nov-2016 - Milan Records will release Manchester By The Sea, the story of Lee Chandler who is a brooding, irritable loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. One damp winter day he gets a call summoning him to his hometown, north of the city. His brother’s heart has given out suddenly, and he’s been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. The soundtrack album elegantly blends original score by Toronto-based composer Lesley Barber and classical music pieces by masters such as Georg Fridric Handel and Jules Massenet. Fresh off her invitation to join the Motion Picture Academy, Ms. Barber delivers, what most will consider, her best work to date. Beautifully harmonized vocal performances, recurring at key intervals, represent only one of the many memorable moments of her achievement.

Rupert Gregson-Williams' Hacksaw Ridge
2-Nov-2016 - Varèse Sarabande has released Hackshaw Ridge both digitally and on CD on November 4, 2016. The album features the original music composed by Rupert Gregson-Williams. Hackshaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during one of the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

John Swihart's First Girl I Loved
9-Oct-2016 - Lakeshore Records will release First Girl I Loved with music by John Swihart and winner of the Best of NEXT Audience Award at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

On assignment for her high-school yearbook, social-misfit Anne (Dylan Gelula) charmingly hits it off with the beautiful star of the softball team, Sasha (Brianna Hildebrand). But when Anne tells her best friend Clifton (Mateo Arias) about her new crush, he reveals a hidden jealousy that threatens more than just the girls’ budding romance. Writer/director Kerem Sanga tells this remarkably touching story with a multifaceted style that is as fresh as it is daring. Brimming with authenticity and humor, First Girl I Loved offers a delightful, contemporary perspective on the jitters of new romance and the age-old heartbreak of love.
Available as download from Amazon.com, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.

Available as download. CD-R available only through Amazon Disc-On-Demand.
