FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BUYSOUNDTRAX RECORDS TO RELEASE
MUSIC FROM THE FILMS OF RIDLEY SCOTT

Featuring Music by Hans Zimmer, Jerry Goldsmith, Vangelis, and Tangerine Dream

(May 13, 2013) – BuySoundtrax Records is proud to announce the release of Music From the Films of Ridley Scott, available digitally on May 14th and, in stores and from www.buysoundtrax.com on May 27, 2013. The recording was produced and arranged by Dominik Hauser, performed by the American Film Symphony, and features performances by Brandon K. Verrett and Edgar Rothermich.

Ridley Scott has produced some of the most critically acclaimed, commercial successes, and beloved films of the past 35 years. From his 1979 breakthrough, Alien, to the cult classic Blade Runner, to his three Academy Award nominations (Thelma and Louise, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down), Scott’s films have run the gamut, set in the past, present and future.

One thing is constant in the works of Ridley Scott – he has worked with some of the best-loved composers of his time, including Jerry Goldsmith, Hans Zimmer, Vangelis, Trevor Jones, and more recently Harry Gregson-Williams and Marc Streitenfeld.

Music From the Films of Ridley Scott features tracks from Scott’s films including The Duellists (Howard Blake), Alien (Jerry Goldsmith), Blade Runner (Vangelis), Legend (Jerry Goldsmith and Tangerine Dream), Someone To Watch Over Me (George and Ira Gershwin), Black Rain (Hans Zimmer), Thelma and Louise (Hans Zimmer), 1492: Conquest of Paradise (Vangelis), White Squall (Jeff Rona), G.I. Jane (Trevor Jones), Gladiator (Hans Zimmer), Hannibal (Hans Zimmer), Black Hawk Down(Hans Zimmer), Kingdom of Heaven (Harry Gregson-Williams), Robin Hood (Marc Streitenfeld), Prometheus (Marc Streitenfeld).

Originally from Switzerland, Dominik Hauser received his education at the Jazz School St. Gallen in Switzerland, earning a masters degree in music. In 1996 Hauser relocated to Los Angeles, to attend UCLA where he delved deeply into film scoring. Subsequently he took his skills to the realm of indie cinema and began composing for film. Hauser’s work involves him in a variety of projects, including cinema, theater and video games. Recently Hauser completed arranging and orchestration on the restoration of the first Best Picture Academy Award® winner Wings for the 2012 Paramount Picture centennial celebration. His work for the record label BSX includes The Bounty, Scrooge, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Hauser recently published his fourth book, Soloing for Bass.

Music From The Films of Ridley Scott will be available digitally on May 14th and in stores, and directly from Buy Soundtrax on May 27, 2013.

I really like Buysoundtrax releases... you are miles ahead of Siva Screen's releases. They seem to churn out back catalogue recordings as somethibng 'new' whereas Buysoundtrax provides the listener with brand new recordings and interpratations. Well done BSX !!

Interesting! Some scores not represented though, like Zimmer's Matchstick Men, and the Streitenfeld trio A Good Year, American Gangster and Body Of Lies, but some of those are quite poor anyway.

I guess I will buy this.

I've been listening to this a few times lately. It's really good. The rerecordings sound surprisingly fresh, considering the idiosyncracies of the originals. It was about time we got a Ridley Scott compilation.

Here is the track list. There are two tracks each from both Gladiator, Hannibal and Black Hawk Down. (Two tracks from Legend are OK as those were two different scores.) If I was the producer, I would have had only one track from each of these scores, and added Matchstick Men, A Good Year and American Gangster, to get as broad a selection as possible.

I agree with that. I would also include actual score bits from SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME and BLACK HAWK DOWN instead of the source songs they used. But that's where the crossover appeal lies, I know that.

Overall, it's a fine album.

Yes, I see now that Minstrel Boy is not a score track. Strange. So a mistake in the track list then, as Zimmer has nothing to do with the track.

I have no idea, but you should get it in some form, FB. It's a good one! (currently playing in the background, btw).

If it's not on CD, I won't buy it.

That's how old-fashioned I am!

OK, I finally got the CD, signed by Dominik Hauser. An album like this is long overdue, and I think it's a nice and representative compilation. Of course, everything is not interesting, but all in all a good album. Also fine liner notes by Julie Kirgo. Is she active on the forum?

Anyone else who took the plunge and actually bought the CD instead of the download?

Excellent compilation. The range and variety of the tracks is interesting and the accompanying notes include interesting information. I probably wouldn't buy many of the full soundtracks but this is a good sampler.
