Mark Adler's Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing etc.
4-Apr-2006 - Milan Records has released Emmy winning composer Mark Adler's score for Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing And Charm School. Mark Adler took his first inspiration for the score from Robert Carlyle's decision to give his character an Irish accent, which director Randall Miller suggested as a jumping point in developing the score's main theme. Adler and frequent collaborator Sid Page worked together to find a tone on his violin that suggested Irish Uillean pipes. For a number of contemplative scenes Adler used fragments of the fiddle theme against an ambient backdrop of tuned Tibetan bowls, high and low wind chimes and piano layered with gamelan and muted strings to create a meditative atmosphere. The result is a lyrical score that conveys the memory of first love, and how those feelings can stay with you into adulthood. For more info, visit Milan Records.
