Rahman may have grown by leaps and bounds over the years, working with some of the biggest names all over India and outside, but his finest scores still continue to be reserved for one person, Mani Ratnam. And for good reason too, considering the way Mani Ratnam has treated each of those songs in his movies. There are number of gems in the album, most notably being 'Ranjha Ranjha', 'Beera Beera' and 'Thok De Killi'. Go for it, this one is not to be missed as it has Rahman coming up with one of his best soundtracks in recent times. --platform47.com

With Raavan, the Mani Ratnam- Rahman duo are ready to take on the music world once again with rich compositions and Earthy feel to this modern tale set against the theme of a classic mythological story. With 6 songs and a mix of assorted singers like Vijay Prakash, Sukhwinder Singh, Rekha Bharadwaj, Ila Arun, Kunal Ganjawala and other noted artists, the album is a treat for Rahman fans. Starting with a tribal song, the CD combines this with an upbeat melody, a romantic melodious number, a fast paced song and ends with a folk number.

New MovieScore Media CD: BLACK DEATH (Christian Henson)


Set during the first outbreak of the bubonic plague in England, Black Death is a dark horror adventure movie that features a highly original score by Christian Henson. In his third collaboration with director Christopher Smith, Henson (whose scores for The Secret of Moonacre and Triangle are also available from MovieScore Media) has created a sonic world that fuses a modern approach to film scoring with a strikingly authentic sound. Using modern instruments, including a guitar quartet, and unusual playing techniques such as singing through a traditional tuba or playing the violin in a “primitive” viol-like style, Henson has created one of the most original film scores we’ve come across in recent time. Standout elements of the score is the contrast between relentless action and sparse melodic themes. A musical work filled with darkness, beauty and mystery. Not to be missed!

Set during the height of the First World War, Passchendaele tells the story of Sergeant Michael Dunne (Paul Gross), a Canadian soldier who is brutally wounded in France and returns home emotionally and physically scarred. While in the military hospital in Calgary, he meets Sarah (Caroline Dhavernas), a mysterious and attractive nurse for whom he develops a passionate love. When Sarah's younger, asthmatic brother, David (Joe Dinicol), signs up to fight in Europe, Michael feels compelled to return to Europe to protect him. Michael and David, like thousands of Canadians, are sent to fight in the third battle of Ypres, a battle against impossible odds, commonly known as "Passchendaele."

MARK THOMAS - flicka 2


FLICKA 2 (CD) Composed by: Mark Thomas

Sample Tracks
http://www.screenarchives.com/title_detail.cfm/ID/13998/FLICKA-2/

We have worked with British composer Mark Thomas on several albums before (Shadows in the Sun, Back in Business, Tales of the Riverbank) – our fourth collaboration presents his wonderfully spirited, melodic and Americana-tinged score for Flicka 2, 20th Century Fox's sequel to the 2006 theatrical feature. This is Mark Thomas' third score for director Michael Damian, who is an accomplished musician himself and has a strong belief in the role of melody and the power of music in his storytelling. The Flicka 2 score features many tender moments where the solo guitar takes the lead over soft strings, but also darker orchestral music as well as big, sweeping thematic writing matching the grand vistas of the film's Wyoming setting.

SOUND CLIPS from JAMES NEWTON HOWARD's "THE LAST AIRBENDER"


There are two clips of tracks from the Airbender score here - http://www.myspace.com/lastairbender

Airbender Suite is apparently 11 minutes long so the clip is not representative of the entire track, but still the tension is well built up there in the short span too. Flow Like Water sounds really interesting in its own merit as well.

MOVIE INFO AND PLOT:
Centurion is a British film directed by Neil Marshall about the ill-fated Ninth Legion marching north to Caledonia to wipe out the Picts and their leader. Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, and Olga Kurylenko star.

AD 117: The Roman Empire stretches from Egypt to Spain, and east as far as the Black Sea. But in Scotland, the relentless onslaught of conquest has ground to a halt in the face of the guerrilla tactics of an elusive enemy - the savage and terrifying tribes known as the Picts.

Centurion Quintus Dias, the sole survivor of a Pictish raid on a Roman frontier fort, is rescued by the legion of Titus Flavius Virilus, which has been ordered into Caledonia to wipe out the Picts and to kill their king, Gorlacon. When the legion is wiped out in a surprise attack, Dias and six other survivors race to rescue their captured general before they can head back toward the safety of the Roman frontier.
