Theme by Hans Zimmer and Jacob Shea
Score by Jacob Shea for Bleeding Fingers Music

“Cameras took us intimately close to the animals, then pulled overhead for drone shots, then even further to satellites showing the Earth’s curvature. They took us into the air and under the sea, soaring and sweeping, accompanied by Hans Zimmer’s suitably epic score and Attenborough’s whispery narration – a sound which has become as reassuringly familiar as our own breathing.” – The Telegraph

UFO


spotify

After a decade of creating pioneering puppet series made for children, Gerry & Sylvia Anderson took their first steps into live-action, with the 1969 feature film Doppelgänger re-titled outside Britain as Journey To The Far Side Of The Sun). This science-fiction film approached its outer space subject matter with a gritty realism, and would set the tone for what was to be their first live-action television series: UFO.

This new series took as a starting point the pioneering work of Dr Christiaan N. Barnard, the surgeon who performed the world’s first heart transplant operation. In UFO a dying race of aliens travel across vast distances of space to harvest organs from human beings to help ensure their own survival. To combat this threat the United Nations created SHADO, a top-secret organisation utilising the latest technology available to defend the Earth.

To complement the series, the Andersons frequent musical collaborator Barry Gray created a multifaceted score that gave the programme its own musical identity. Elegantly crafted and a firm favourite with Barry Gray fans, the sound of UFO, particularly its ethereal “World Music” closing credits is, quite simply, a joy. Includes a bonus track, Trampoline performed by The Spencer Davis Group from the episode Ordeal.

Vera


spotify

Award winning composer Ben Bartlett’s poignant score to top-rating ITV drama based on the bestselling books by Ann Cleeves (Shetland, Inspector Ramsay) and starring Brenda Blethyn.

BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning actress Brenda Blethyn stars as the eccentric but brilliant DCI Vera Stanhope. Unconventional and unglamorous, Vera faces the world with her caustic wit, guile and courage and what she lacks in charm she makes up for in wisdom and insight.

Ben Bartlett’s soundtrack perfectly complements the atmospheric Northumberland landscapes that the series is set in. Vera’s music theme started from a very simple idea of four chords, originally used to score the heartrending opening scene of the very first episode. The sweeping melody enveloping these four chords became more prominent as the music developed, and has gradually formed into the instantly recognizable, haunting and elegant theme of the series.

The score for Vera is full of musical miniatures that have become part of the fabric of the show, and some of the dramatic highlights have been selected for the album here. On this album, and in the score, the piano is played by Ben Bartlett.

Ben Bartlett is a London based TV and concert composer known for his prolific music output for drama, comedy and documentaries. Recently, Ben’s music was featured in SKY 1 hit series Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, ITV’s The Loch, Sky Atlantic’s critically acclaimed The Tunnel. For his score for Walking with Dinosaurs Ben won a BAFTA in 2000 and was nominated for Primetime Emmy. He was also nominated for RTS (The Ghost Squad, The Mark of Cain, Mutual Friends) and Ivor Novello Awards (Fiona’s Story). Ben also writes for concert hall and theatre. He received critical acclaim for his mini-opera El Tigre, based on a poem of Pablo Neruda, and his piano work Caprice was performed at The Queen Elizabeth Hall, London.

Music From The How To Train Your Dragon Trilogy


spotify
Featuring 14 exhilarating themes from John Powell’s scores, performed by London Music Works.

Based on Cressida Cowell’s popular children’s book, set in a mystical Viking world, the animated trilogy follows the story of teenager Hiccup, and dragon Toothless. Aspiring to be a dragon slayer, Hiccup captures his first dragon, but instead of killing Toothless, he befriends him. This rousing epic mixes comedy, touching moments and action sequences and John Powell’s masterful score perfectly complements it. The trilogy proved to be both a critical and commercial success, grossing $1.6 billion worldwide.

In How To Train Your Dragon series, John Powell relies on the tradition of Wagnerian leitmotifs. The themes representing different characters, concepts and locations are spread across the trilogy and are varied and developed, orchestrated in different ways. Often, the tempos and moods change and the themes play in counterpoint to one another.

John Powell has scored several excellent animated films before the How To Train Your Dragon series, including Antz, Chicken Run, Shrek, Kung-Fu Panda, and the Ice Age. With How To Train Your Dragon series Powell earned his first Academy Award nomination and his third BAFTA nomination. The score also won the IFMCA 2011 Awards for Best Original Score for an Animated Feature and Film Score of the Year.

On this album, London Music Works skilfully brings together a selection of the very best themes from Powell’s consummate and game-changing animation score.
Sci-Fi Online review 10/10
“This compilation has been thoroughly researched by someone at Silva Screen Records who not only loves Powell’s music, but also has an incredible ear for structuring a compilation album. This flows incredibly well, with one track seamlessly following on from the next as though they were originally designed to work this way.

London Music Works do an incredible job of pretty much representing the original score. The recording is as professional as the original recordings.”

Joe Stilgoe: The Heat Is On


spotify
“What if all these songs from all these life-changing movies were actually big band classics?”

On June 28th Silva Screen Records will release Joe Stilgoe’s album of 80s movie hits arranged in a 50s big band style. To celebrate the album release, Joe and his Mighty Big Band will be performing at Ronnie Scott’s in London on 30th June, 1st and 2nd July.

This is the first time Joe has collaborated with Silva Screen on a solo album. Speaking about the project, he says “this album basically is my childhood. Mixing the movies I was obsessed with and the big band music I felt such an affinity when everyone else was listening to A-Ha.”

The album continues Joe’s much loved and critically acclaimed style of combining great songs from the past with an exciting and relevant new spin. Connecting the dots between the 50s and 80s, THE HEAT IS ON! shines a spotlight on some of the greatest movie songs from 80s blockbusters – Beverly Hills Cop, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Batman, Short Circuit, The Karate Kid and many more. Using the great arrangers of the 1950s as inspiration – Nelson Riddle, Robert Farnan, Sammy Nestico – these classic songs are almost unrecognisable in their new guise as perhaps the lost standards from the decade of swing and rock ‘n’ roll.

“Growing up in the 80s in Southern England wasn’t much like the movies, but on the daydreamy days I would imagine I was Tom Hanks in Big, Michael J Fox in Back To The Future, Judd Nelson in The Breakfast Club and sometimes even Mary Stuart Masterson in Some Kind Of Wonderful. I fell in love with the music from American films, as they seemed to have everything I longed for – the wide streets with white clapboard houses, perfect front lawns and strangely amenable older residents with hoses, the bikes with armchair seats ridden by the kids in ET, the sense of adventure and stories in Stand By Me, the massive drums and massive choruses from those ballads that only the 80s knew how to deliver. All that was missing for a boy who would go on to dream of singing with a big band was that – big bands. I don’t remember any big band music from the 80s, or at least, none that reached me. So, for this album, I thought we’d bring it all together. What if all these songs from all these life-changing movies were actually big band classics?”

Good Omens


spotify
Music by David Arnold

Composer David Arnold’s soundtrack to the highly anticipated TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s 1990 comic fable that packs a punch.

Following the odd couple, angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and demon Crowley (David Tennant) in their quest to sabotage the end of the World. Amazon Prime’s six episode miniseries delivers a tongue in cheek adaptation of this powerful and funny story.

From the Award-winning composer of Sherlock and Casino Royale comes a soundtrack that perfectly complements the Good Omens’ drama and visual sensibilities. At times nostalgic and eerie but always varied, beautiful and full of excitement, this robust, yet funny music entity has become another character in the story. Here, Arnold has created a contemporary soundworld for heaven and hell.

The closing song is Tori Amos’ version of A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square, a British wartime favourite referenced at the end of the book. Conjuring feelings of separation and pining for untroubled times, and including the lines “There was magic abroad in the air. There were angels dining at the Ritz. And a nightingale sang in Berkeley square”.

Good Omens is produced by BBC Studios, Amazon Studios, Blank Corporation and Narrativia. The series is directed by Douglas Mackinnon and features the all-star cast including Michael Sheen, David Arnold, Frances McDorman, Brian Cox, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Hamm. David Arnold is one of the UK’s leading film composers, composing scores for blockbusters including Stargate, The Chronicles of Narnia: the Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Hot Fuzz, Paul, Independence Day, 2 Fast 2 Furious and Casino Royale.

Otra Mirada – Tangos De Camara


spotify
OTRA MIRADA (ANOTHER LOOK)

From Award Winning film composer Daniel Tarrab, comes a fresh and innovative, jazz-influenced, Tango album.

Performed by Nestor Marconi (Bandoneon), Pablo Agri (Violin), Daniel Tarrab (Piano / Contrabass) and string orchestra comprised from the members of Orquesta Filarmonica Nacional.

Aptly naming the album Otra Mirada (Another Look), Tarrab carefully avoids the powerful musical influence of the unforgettable Piazzolla. Composing 8 original Tangos in song format and preserving the passion of the style, Tarrab is also bringing in the influence of Jazz through harmonies. His dramatic, modern interpretation of Tango stems from the music form’s constant evolution. As observed by John Pareles of the New York Times in the year 2000 – “Jazz and tango have parallel histories. Both came out of the slums and the underworld, were denounced as salacious and were then embraced as dance music. Both moved from clubs to concert halls, evolving into more ambitious forms. Both conjure romance, exhilaration and tension; both use improvisation. Yet they are as different as Argentina and the United States. Tango has a European formality and a sense of tragedy; jazz prefers openness and a sense of humor, the underlying optimism that lets the blues transcend hard times. Still, it was inevitable that jazz and tango would meet”.

In the spirit of cosmopolitanism, Otra Mirada is written as concert music that is open to improvisation and local influences. The Worldwide tour will feature the original trio backed by local string orchestras, bringing vernacular flavour to the Buenos Aires Tango. Presently, Tango is experiencing a revival in Japan, Korea, Germany, France, Finland, countries far from Argentina.

Daniel Tarrab was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He studied Music Composition at the Catholic University of Argentina (UCA) and Film Composition at The Berklee College of Music, in Boston, Massachusetts (USA). In the 2000s Daniel established himself as a film composer. Known for the Broken Silence Series (produced by Steven Spielberg in 2002) and The Whore and the Whale (2004), in 2007 Tarrab won the World Soundtrack Awards Discovery of the year for the Cannes Film awarded XXY. He is also a recipient of several other awards from the Academy of film of Argentina-Gran premio SADAIC for Film Music (society of Argentinean Composers).

One of the great musicians of the 70s, Nestor Marconi is a leading player of the bandoneón, the small accordion-like instrument that is a prominent part of the traditional sound of the Argentine tango. Since the 90s, he has joined the international classical music circuit as a soloist performing pieces from the bandoneon and orchestra repertoire such as the “Concert by Bandoneón” or the “Tres Tangos” by Astor PIazzolla. He has appeared on the stages throughout Europe and USA, as well as at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires and has performed with leading classical music artists Gidon Kremer, Daniel Barenboim, Yo-Yo Ma, and Charles Dutoit on Tango cross-over projects. Currently, Marconi is the leader of his own tango trio with Leonardo Marconi on piano and Oscar Giunta on bass.

Son of Antonio Agri, Pablo Agri, like his father is a leading violinist of the Tango genre. Focusing early on classical violin studies, Pablo developed his own style. He has been a member of the National Symphony Orchestra since 1992, he took classes with maestro Szymsia Bajour and was awarded a scholarship by the Antorchas Foundation to study at the Conservatorio Edgard Varese, in France, with maestro Ami Flammer, obtaining the Premier Prix in July 1997. He has also worked with the best Tango musicians, from Mariano Mores to Horacio Salgán through Néstor Marconi, Susana Rinaldi and Osvaldo Berlingieri.
