Original Music by JACOB SHEA, JASHA KLEBE
for BLEEDING FINGERS MUSIC

When BBC’s Planet Earth appeared on television screens worldwide a decade ago it transformed how viewers saw their planet. Capturing a global audience of over half a billion people it gave an unprecedented view of life on Planet Earth.

10 years on this fascinating subject has been revisited with the incredible march of technology allowing the viewer to watch the natural world from even more perspectives. This stunning new ultra-high definition series is narrated as before by Sir David Attenborough.

The soundtrack from Hans Zimmer and his team leads with the composer’s powerful theme to the series which reflects nature in all its awesome power. With over 120 soundtracks to his credit which have grossed 24 billion dollars at the box office Hans Zimmer has been honoured with many accolades, an Academy Award, two Golden Globes, three Grammys, an American Music Award, a Tony Award and The Henry Mancini Award for Lifetime Achievement.

His Academy Award nomination for Interstellar marked his 10th Oscar nomination.

The score composition is completed by Jacob Shea and Jasha Klebe from The Bleeding Fingers Custom Music Shop, a joint venture between Extreme Music and Hans Zimmer’s RCI Global created to build a world-class Zimmer approved TV-focused roster.

Nocturnal Animals

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Music by Abel Korzeniowski
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Fashion designer turned film-maker Tom Ford delivers his second feature film in the wake of the huge critical success of his stunning debut A Single Man.

Once more his distinctive storytelling and style have had critics delivering high praise for this taut thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams and Michael Shannon which is set in the state Ford was brought up in, Texas.

The BAFTA and Emmy nominated composer Abel Korzeniowski teams up once more with Ford after their successful partnership on A Single Man.

His passionate, evocative, and truly original music is grounded in the modern European style, that fixes a singular impression on the listener.

“While music that’s voluptuous and forlorn enough to have been composed by Bernard Herrmann floods the soundtrack” – Variety

“Nocturnal Animals is aided by Abel Korzeniowski’s sumptuous, piercing score” – Mashable

RAN – Toru Takemitsu (physical release)

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016
Original music by TORU TAKEMITSU

Over a 60 year career director Akira Kurosawa’s films have passed into cinematic legend and he retains his status as one of the most influential and preeminent film-makers of the 20th Century.

Films such as Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Kagemusha and his last great epic, Ran are all regarded as milestones in the history of celluloid. The latter, the most expensive film made in Japan up to its release in 1985 is loosely based on Japanese legend and Shakespeare’s King Lear.

Composer Toru Takemitsu ranks as highly in the echelons
of Japanese music as Kurosawa in film with a prolific output
of soundtracks alongside major music works and books.

Commissioned on Kurosawa’s instructions to deliver a score inspired by Mahler with up to 40 disparate takes of music, the spectral and eerie sounds capture perfectly the imagery on screen.

Originally released as two separate suites of music this version includes those and adds a further 14 tracks of Takemitsu’s score.

02 Ran – Suite Part 2
03 Opening Credits – Main Title

Ryuichi Sakamoto: Music For Film

Monday, October 17th, 2016
Brussels Philharmonic Conducted by Dirk Brossé | Presented By Film Fest Gent

From small beginnings in 1974 as a local cinema and university event, Film Fest Gent has grown yearly in stature and is now recognised as one of the major destinations for the film industry. A vital component is the celebration of film music in the shape of the World Soundtrack Awards which honours the very best composers at work in the world of cinema. In 2016 the award goes to one of the most brilliant composers of his generation, Ryuichi Sakamoto. This is the first overview of his remarkable catalogue of film scores, fully approved by the composer and performed by the masterful Brussels Philharmonic under the baton of Dirk Brossé. Sakamoto was already a celebrated pioneer in electronic music and composer/pianist/singer in Japan when director Nagisa Oshima asked him to write the score for Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence in 1983 and also to star alongside David Bowie. In a 30 year plus career since then he has worked with the cream of film directors including Bernardo Bertolucci (The Last Emperor), Brian De Palma (Snake Eyes), Pedro Almodovar (High Heels) and most recently Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (The Revenant). This compilation is a fitting tribute to his status as one of the greatest living musicians and film composers.

Claire Jones – Screen Serenade

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Screen Serenade is a glorious celebration of well-loved film and TV themes especially arranged for solo harp by Claire’s husband, percussionist and composer Chris Marshall. Claire’s radiant performances range from commanding torrents of sound to a new, fragile and contemplative quality that Claire brings to music usually associated with the strings, piano and even the full orchestra. Sublimely delicate, yet at times poignant and implacable, Screen Serenade is a delightful album featuring themes such as Jurassic Park, Ice Dance (Edward Scissorhands), Downton Abbey, Cavatina (Deer Hunter), Pirates of the Caribbean, Romeo and Juliet, and E.T.

One of Wales’ most outstanding classical talents, Claire became a household name in 2011 following her esteemed performance at the Royal Wedding for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and she also held the position of Official Harpist to HRH The Prince of Wales 2007-11.

“I have been in love with film music since I was a child, and have always wanted to create an album which includes my favourite soundtracks of all time. The sound of the harp brings an element of magic and sparkle to these well-known themes, and my dream as always is to bring the harp to a wider audience across the world” – Claire Jones

Music From The Hunger Games Saga

Monday, April 25th, 2016
Performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic OrchestraFollowing in the footsteps of Harry Potter, The Hunger Game novels have become a worldwide publishing sensation followed by a series of four films which have grossed close to $3 billion.

Composer James Newton Howard took on scoring the original Hunger Games film when a scheduling conflict took Danny Elfman off the project, thus beginning a sequence of magnificent film music.

In a 30 year career his range of composition has been formidable. Scores include The Prince Of Tides, The Fugitive, Batman Begins, King Kong, I Am Legend, The Dark Knight and the worldwide TV hit ER.

His work has received eight Oscar nominations and he has been named BMI Icon at this year’s BMI Film & TV Awards.

The fifteen tracks assembled here from the film series, in this unique set, highlight his epic composing skills. Performed by The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the most respected and recorded orchestras in the world, this collection represents some of the most skillful and exquisite symphonic music in cinema today.

The Essential Ennio Morricone Film Music Collection

Monday, April 25th, 2016

Performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic OrchestraIl Maestro – one of the greatest composers of both the 20th and 21st century, still performing concerts in his 88th year and finally, but finally winning a competitive Oscar for The Hateful Eight in 2016.

Born in Rome in 1928, Morricone began his film career with Il Federale in 1961 and spiralled to worldwide success with his unique music for the Sergio Leone ‘Man With No Name’ trilogy starring Clint Eastwood, A Fistful Of Dollars, A Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.

The breadth of his brilliance is underlined by this 40 track selection of some of his greatest scores performed by The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. One of the most respected and recorded orchestras in the world they pay due homage to the great composer.

It’s a journey through cinematic genius, six decades of wonderful music. Highlights include the Leone films, 1900, Chi Mai, Once Upon A Time In America, The Mission, The Untouchables, Cinema Paradiso and of course his Oscar winner, The Hateful Eight.

As director Quentin Tarantino has said, “I have a huge record collection that I’ve been collecting since I was a kid. I realized I have more Ennio Morricone records than I have of anybody else. More than Bob Dylan, more than The Beatles, more than Elvis Presley, more than any rock musician”.

“The soundtrack sounded incredible in the cinema. I was very f**king happy indeed… Revel in the sound of a bombastic and hubristic 70s that was doomed to failure… Enjoy.” Ben Wheatley

‘’Proud to proclaim that in divisive world of Ben Wheatley’s High Rise, I’m solidly in the YES camp. Particular plaudits to Clint Mansell’’ – Mark Kermode – BBC

Golden Globe and Grammy nominated composer Clint Mansell’s brooding, edgy and beautifully unsettled orchestral score to Ben Wheatley’s eagerly awaited film adaptation of J.G Ballard’s High-Rise.
 
Described by Hollywood Reporter as “a lustrous retro-classical score bursting with ironic good cheer”, Clint Mansell’s music has a meaty, steadfast presence throughout the visual spectacular of the savage societal breakdown.

Former Pop Will Eat Itself frontman turned soundtrack composer, Clint Mansell is best known for his work with long time collaborator Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, The Fountain, Noah). He also scored Duncan Jones’ Directorial debut Moon, and He has also lent to his talent to films as diverse as Filth, Faster, and Last Night.

Starring Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, High-Rise is a visionary tale of human society slipping into extreme violence. The once-peaceful residents of a desirable apartment block quickly spiral into a world ruled by primal urges in which elevators become vicious battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into brutal raids on “enemy” floors.

The film received its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2015, its European premiere at the 63rd San Sebastián Film Festival and is scheduled for release in the United Kingdom on 18 March 2016 through StudioCanal.
