A new record label: MIM Mark Isham Music
17-Feb-2011 -
Grammy and Emmy-award winning composer
Mark Isham inaugurates his new label,
Mark Isham Music (MIM), with the release
of his original soundtrack recording for the
CBS motion picture, The Mechanic,
starring Jason Statham.
The Music
Mark Isham's score for The Mechanic is a
hard-hitting action  score suffused with the
iconic melodies that have become the
trademark sonic signature of Mr. Isham's work.
The tracks move effortlessly from "face
blasting energy" to deeply emotional nuanced
soundscapes. The result is a superb blend of
modern electronic aggression and a beautiful
orchestral palette. Mr. Isham recorded the
Prague National Symphony, and recorded in
Dvorak Hall in order to capture the full sonic
grandeur of the work.

For fans of electronica, ambient, experimental
music,  this score seduces one into the world
of a master assassin; a complex world of
intrigue and betrayal with continual urgency,
emotion and suspense.
The soundtrack to The Mechanic will be
released in three configurations:

• The Assassin’s Edition, which is a specially-
curated version that presents the soundtrack
as a wildly engaging listening experience.
Isham has constructed the Assassin's Edition
to be a stand-alone piece that is as compelling
as any contemporary modern symphony.
Using a palette of sounds from electric guitar
to modern electronics to lush string orchestra,
this work reaches beyond the traditional score
with timelessness.

• The Complete Collector’s Edition, which
presents every cue written for the picture.
For the film music enthusiast, The Mechanic
Complete Score provides an in-depth experience
into the music, track-by-track, in its complete
form exactly as it appears in the film.

• The Double Barrel Limited Edition, which
bundles both The Complete Collector’s Edition
and The Assassin’s Edition in a specially-
designed package, complete with the CDs of
each record, a special bonus item signed by
Mark, and a specially-branded USB stick that
includes the audio as well as rare, behind-the-
scenes videos that gives the listener/viewer
a view through the keyhole of the process of
making this phenomenal release.
