Marco Beltrami/Buck Sanders' The Hurt Locker
7-Feb-2010 - Lakeshore Records has released the score for The Hurt Locker, an intense portrayal of elite soldiers who have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat. When a new sergeant, James, takes over a highly trained bomb disposal team amidst violent conflict, he surprises his two subordinates, Sanborn and Eldridge, by recklessly plunging them into a deadly game of urban combat. James behaves as if he's indifferent to death. As the men struggle to control their wild new leader, the city explodes into chaos, and James' true character reveals itself in a way that will change each man forever. What sticks out about the score is that the music is intended to be powerful but subtle most of the time, and not a score that drowns out any of the film's critical scenes. The score is nominated for an Oscar and was a cooperative composition job between Buck Sanders and Marco Beltrami. The duo worked together on a variety of films in the past, and their chemistry shows in their musical work for this movie.
