Lakeshore Records presents

Original Motion Picture Score. The album features original music by
Murray Gold (TV’s Doctor Who, Death At A Funeral).
“When I was visualizing my approach to this film,” said Hoodwinked Too!
Hood vs. Evil’s director/co-writer Mike Disa, “I knew it had to be a
tongue-in-cheek action comedy. Something as smart and exciting as any
big budget action film, but funny and accessible to kids. That made me
instantly think of Murray [Gold]'s work; dramatic and bold but still playful
Murray Gold was born in the British naval city of Portsmouth but soon
drifted away on a long, circuitous voyage around the world.
He currently lives in New York City. He has been nominated for four
BAFTAS and five Royal Television Society Awards in his native UK.
“The audience for this need to feel the fun. I think they will,” explained
Gold. “This is all 100% organic. No overdubs, or stems or clever
patching things together. This is just a great bunch of musicians in
one room. That's how I like to record.”
“His [Murray’s] complex characters themes are introduced and then
grow through the film mirroring the character's emotional growth.
The action scenes are played with gusto and passion while the tender
moments are reserved and subtle adding depth and color to each
hot,” described Disa.
Gold’s ensemble featured several notable players (including the
late Maurice Williams lead trumpet), with music conducted and
orchestrated by Ben Foster. Gold said, “All I can tell you about
the music is it was made with a lot of care and love and played
by a fine body of players...they're the best.”
