RAN – Toru Takemitsu


spotify
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.

Music By Stuart Earl
Original Television Soundtrack

Stuart Earl’s score to the BBC adaptation of Agatha Christie’s best- selling thriller, And Then There Were None, nominated for the 61st Ivor Novello Awards in the Best Television Soundtrack category.

Stuart Earl’s previous scores have been described as “mood-enhancing” (Hollywood Reporter), “reflective” (Nouse) “evocative” (Film-Forward), “dreamlike” (Little White Lies). His mastery is not to underline, but to draw from the story and characters, and to craft an exquisite sound world, and this is what he accomplishes in And Then There Were None. A meditation on guilt, the 3-part drama serial premiered in the UK December 26th to 28th on BBC One in the UK. The series averaged 8.7 million viewers, with 9.5 million people tuning into the first night and garnered widespread critical acclaim.

“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.

Bringing late 19th century Victorian Whitechapel to life with stunning historic sets and topline actors (Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn, MyAnna Buring), police drama Ripper Street was an immediate success on its TV debut in 2012. Despite being axed by the BBC after series two a Radio Times poll revealed it as Britain’s most popular TV show of 2013 ahead of Doctor Who, Broadchurch and Breaking Bad. Taken up by Amazon Prime Instant Video the third series will make a terrestrial debut later this year. British Swiss composer Dominik Scherrer has an extensive list of TV and film composition credits that include Scenes Of A Sexual Nature, Inspector George Gently, Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple and The Missing. His music perfectly conjures up the world of East London from over a century ago with its detailed collection of musical sounds that can range from a mandola to a Norwegian Hardanger fiddle. He received the ultimate accolade for any composer in 2014 when his score for Ripper Street won the much coveted Ivor Novello Award for Best Television Soundtrack.
