Original Television Soundtrack


Music Composed by 
Mychael Danna & Jeff Danna
([500] Days Of Summer, Little Miss Sunshine, Capote)

In the wake of King Uther’s sudden death, chaos threatens to engulf Britain. When the sorcerer Merlin (Joseph Fiennes) has visions of a dark future, he installs the young and impetuous Arthur (Jamie Campbell Bower, Sweeny Todd), Uther’s unknown son and heir, who has been raised from birth as a commoner.  But Arthur’s cold and ambitious half-sister Morgan (Eva Green, Casino Royale) will fight him to the bitter end, summoning unnatural forces to claim the crown in this epic battle for control. These are dark times indeed for the new king, with Guinevere (Tasmin Egerton) being the only shining light in Arthur’s harsh world.  Faced with profound moral decisions, and the challenge of uniting a kingdom broken by war and steeped in deception, Arthur will be tested beyond imagination.  Forget everything you think you know … this is the story of Camelot that has never been told before.

Capturing all the pageantry, adventure and romance of the Arthurian legend is the original score composed by Mychael and Jeff Danna.

CAMELOT will begin airing on Starz on April 1.

Garry Schyman started his musical composition career after graduating from USC. Just out of the university he was then employed by the legendary Mike Post and Pete Carpenter organization where he worked on the team's roster of top rated series such as Magnum P.I. and The A-Team.

As creator of the music for the multiple award-winning video game BioShock
- winner of Best Original Score from the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, Spike TV's Best Original Video Game Score Award, G4 TV's Soundtrack of the Year and Game Audio Network Guild Awards for Music of the Year, Best Interactive Score and Best Original Instrumental - Garry Schyman has emerged as one of the medium's foremost composers.

In BioShock you are a castaway in Rapture, an underwater Utopia torn apart by civil war. Caught between powerful forces, and hunted down by genetically modified "splicers" and deadly security systems, you have to come to grips with a deadly, mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. To immerse players in this captivating and haunting world Schyman crafted a combination of aleatoric elements, early 20th century writing, musique concrète, traditional tonal and late romantic styles. The score, recorded with a live orchestra at historic Capitol Studios in Hollywood, features solo violin, cello, and piano performances. 

Following the worldwide critical success of BioShock, Garry Schyman was assigned by Electronic Arts to create the hellish, dramatic score for Visceral Games' adaptation of Dante Alighieri's epic poem, Dante's Inferno. The orchestral score and chorus were recorded at the world famous Abbey Road Studios in London with the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Metro Voices Singers.

GUSTAVO SANTOALLLA - Les Yeux De Sa Mère (His Mother's Eyes)

(His Mother's Eyes)

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Music Composed by
Gustavo Santaolalla
(Brokeback Mountain, Babel, 21 Grams)

Mathieu Roussel is a novelist who once wrote an extremely successful novel. Since then, lacking inspiration, he has been forced to write unauthorized biographies under a pen name. His new target is Léna Weber (Catherine Deneuve) once a world-famous reporter and now a media icon anchorwoman on the leading French network. To reach out to her and to become her Personal Assistant, he uses his past relationship with her daughter, Maria Canalès (Géraldine Pailhas), a prima ballerina committed to her father’s political engagement in Spain. Trying to play daughter against mother for his book, he secretly starts seeing Maria again. Mathieu never imagined that by setting both of them up to dig for material for his book, he is going to find himself trapped. He will have no other choice than to eventually bring these two women who lost contact years ago closer. In doing so, he will also help Maria to reveal a long-kept secret.  Bruno, a 20-year-old boy living with his parents in Brittany, is not yet aware of all the consequences this story will have on his existence.

The beautiful and compassionate guitar-based score was composed and performed by Academy Award® winner, Gustavo Santaolalla.

HIS MOTHER’S EYES premieres in France on March 23.

BRIAN TYLER - fast five, score album (2011)

Original Motion Picture Score


Music Composed by 
(Fast And Furious, Battle: LA)

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in Fast Five. In this installment, former cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.

Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail.

Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey…before someone else runs them down first.

Composer Brian Tyler is back with another fuel-injected turbo-charged score.

Universal Pictures opens Fast Five nationwide on April 29.

TREVOR MORRIS - The Borgias (2011) (tv) (CD)

After Delerue and Illaramendi, Trevor Morris is the third composer to write for the BORGIAS universe. Check out the opening from the series, containing his music which will be soon released by Varese Sarabande (see info below). 

Original Television Soundtrack


Music Composed by
(The Tudors)

Oscar®-winning actor Jeremy Irons stars in the epic drama series as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of the Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power in Renaissance-era Italy. The series is created and executive produced by Oscar®-winning director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game), who is directing the first two episodes.

THE BORGIAS is a complex, unvarnished portrait of one of history's most intriguing and infamous dynastic families. The series begins as Rodrigo schemes his way into the position of Pope, causing him, his two Machiavellian sons Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance.

Composer Trevor Morris, fresh from four seasons on The Tudors, weaves a thrilling sonic tapestry for another notorious European family.

THE BORGIAS premieres Sunday, April 3rd with a special 2-hour pilot, only on SHOWTIME®.

ALEXANDRE DESPLAT - La Fille Du Puisatier (2011) (cd)

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Music Composed by
Alexandre Desplat
(Twilight: New Moon, The King’s Speech, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows)

One afternoon while cutting across the field to take lunch to her father, Patricia meets Jacques.  She is 18 and pretty, with the manners of a young lady; he is 26, a fighter pilot and handsome.  A bit of moonlight holds sway over their second meeting.  There won’t be a third — Jacques is sent to the front.

Patricia finds herself pregnant, and the boy’s rich parents cry blackmail.  Patricia and her father, the well-digger, are the only ones to welcome the infant with joy — a joy that Jacques’ parents soon begin to envy and want to share because Jacques is reported missing …

Academy Award nominee Alexandre Desplat (The King’s Speech, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Queen) provides a beautifully pastoral score.  The CD also features Enrico Caruso’s performance of the song, “Core ‘Ngrato,” used so prominently in the film.

La Fille Du Puisatier opens in France on April 27.

CHRIS TILTON - Fringe season 2

Original Television Soundtrack


Season 2

Music Composed by
Chris Tilton

Return to explore the boundaries of a mysterious mythology that holds millions of viewers in its hypnotic grasp.  Season 2 of FRINGE contains worlds (and alternate worlds) of excitement complete with shape shifters, cryonic heads, belly-dwelling beasts and people who turn to ashes before our eyes.  But the overarching narrative takes three clandestine FBI agents — Olivia Dunham, Peter Bishop and Walter Bishop — through a mind-bending investigation of a parallel reality that threatens to destroy ours.  The impossible is here in a series that offers “the most satisfying, coherent story arc of any science fiction-flavored primetime drama” (Mike Hale, The New York Times).

Composer Chris Tilton returns from Season 1 and delivers a mysterious, poignant and beautiful score.

Season 2 of FRINGE is available on Warner Home Video DVD and BluRay.  Season 3 of FRINGE is currently airing on Fox.
