Harry Escott's Shame
1-Jan-2012 - Sony Masterworks has released the original motion picture soundtrack of Shame, an award-winning psychological drama from writer and director Steve McQueen (Hunger). At the 2011 Venice Film Festival, Shame received the Critics Choice award as well as the Best Actor accolade for Michael Fassbender. This movie – described as “a cinematic jolt” with “a brilliant, ferocious performance” by The Hollywood Reporter – is the story of Brandon (Michael Fassbender), a handsome and successful New Yorker who spends his days and nights navigating the reckless terrain of sexual obsession, on an inevitable path towards self destruction. For the original music, McQueen turned to Harry Escott, a young London-based composer best known for the original scores for Hard Candy, A Mighty Heart, Deep Water, and Shifty. Escott’s compositions focus on the potential for music to function as a storyteller with the ability to convey meaning and emotion. However, this soundtrack includes much more, adding in powerful tracks from a variety of genres: from classical to rock and blues.
