Reinhold Heil and Johnny Klimek’s I, Frankenstein released.
From Lakeshore Records comes the score for I, Frankenstein. The soundtrack features the original score composed by Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil. Lisa Gerrard contributes vocals on three cues.
“I think the most interesting element from our side was getting Lisa Gerrard’s voice in the score,” said Klimek. “She did a great job.”
“She has this very unique timbre that fit the Gothic nature of the story perfectly,” Heil agreed. In addition the duo decided to forego all woodwinds for the score. He explained, “restrictions are always good because they help create a specific character for any piece of art,”
200 years after his shocking creation, Dr. Frankenstein's creature, Adam, still walks the earth. But when he finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity, Adam discovers he holds the key that could destroy humankind. From the co-writer of the hit supernatural saga, UNDERWORLD, comes the action thriller I, FRANKENSTEIN, written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie, screen story by Kevin Grevioux and Stuart Beattie, based on the Darkstorm Studios graphic novel "I, Frankenstein" created by Kevin Grevioux. The story is brought to life by a cast that includes Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.
“The whole score was based around four main themes,” described Klimek. “These often intertwine depending upon the characters on screen and the emotional response needed. The film is quite musically driven in parts so some sequences called for many emotional shifts.”
“I love to flesh out stories from what I read between the lines,” said Heil. “I feel that there is a deeply subversive element to the story that bears some relevance for our reality. Evil forces want to take over the world and have been plotting to do so for a long time. Time to stand together and fight back!”
