Caldera Records is proud to present the most recent score of British composer Guy Farley (Modigliani, The Hot Potato) in an exclusive deluxe-package: Secret Sharer, based on the short-story by Joseph Conrad, was directed by Oscar-winning producer Peter Fudakowski (Tsotsi) who describes a tender romance between a captain and an Asian refugee on a cargo ship, accompanied by Farley’s tender score which makes use of a Polish traditional and a strong, romantic main theme, bearing resemblance to the idioms of John Barry. The music was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London.
Additionally, the CD features selected cues from Farley’s unused score for the production of Tsotsi, directed by Gavin Hood, which has never been heard on CD before. While Secret Sharer is a traditional western-sounding score, Tsotsi makes use of African percussion, soprano, kora, marimba and orchestral strings, being even more tender than the main project presented on this disc. As a bonus, we included an insightful audio-commentary by Guy Farley, talking about his work on Secret Sharer.
The first CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Gergely Hubai and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

Does Caldera have anything else in the pipeline, or some kind of vague schedule (like one label release every two weeks, for example)?

Thanks for your interest! We intend to release one new CD every month. Our next release will be a world premiere release of a celebrated European production from 2010. The music was composed by one of the most respected composers who has worked both in Europe and in the US.

I guess let the guessing begin smile

To stay on topic... Has anyone got shipping notice from sae yet?

 Posted:   Mar 2, 2014 - 11:15 AM   
 By:   mastadge   (Member)

Nope, but pre-ordered with some other titles so it might be a little bit.

Here is a full (!) cue from our March-release which nobody has guessed yet. Can you name the composer?

 By:   Lokutus   (Member)

I know... and just love that movie...

Seems like another winner smile

Don't recognize it, but it's very nice. Is it more Farley? Tula: The Revolt or something?

 Posted:   Mar 4, 2014 - 4:25 AM   
 By:   Lokutus   (Member)

not a Farley smile

Tula is far more thematic, symphonic and traditional with a few battle sequences than these northern european dramas...

Sounds very plesant. No idea what it is.

Whoops, I missed European and 2010. Christian Henson's La Rafle (The Round Up)?

slightly older generation than Henson smile

The movie is a period piece actually featuring one of the biggest stars of northern european cinema. Seriously if you think about this area and most well known films, I am sure you will discover his name, which might be the first to come to your mind - although he has been fairly active in US too over the past 17 years having appeared in movies directed by Steven Spielberg, Kenneth Branagh, Gus van Sant, John Frankenheimer, Miloš Forman or Ron Howard among many others.

The same can be actually said about the composer. I am sure Thor could name a few others, but he is probably the lead the composer in this area and quite rightfuly so.

Excellent piece of news! More Johan Söderqvist is very welcome.

hmm... still no shipping notice from SAE!
I guess I'll wait for Amazon next time... or is there any EU store that will have next Caldera releases in stock sooner and would accept paypal or credit card?

I'll chime in. I've thought a lot of Farley's earlier scores showed lots of potential, but this is the first one that completely works for me. It's gorgeous and has gotten a lot of play in the last couple weeks.
