This week's release from Intrada is their long-awaited, definitive, six-disc edition of what is arguably Elmer Bernstein's masterpiece, his truly epic symphonic score for Cecil B. DeMille's final film as a director, the colossal remake of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. The complete score is featured on the first three discs, with the third disc also featuring alternate and unused cues and Bernstein's piano demos; disc four features the mono cues from the film's first soundtrack LP release, disc five has Bernstein's own 1960 stereo LP re-recording (previously released on CD), while disc six features Bernstein's 1966 LP re-recording.


Varese Sarabande has announced three new limited edition CD Club releases, currently expected to begin shipping this week -- ROBOCOP 3: THE DELUXE EDITION, a greatly expanded release of Basil Poleoduris's score for the 1993 sequel, which incoporated his themes from the original RoboCop as well as substantial new material; HELLBOY: THE DELUXE EDITION, a two-disc, expanded version of Marco Beltrami's score for Guillermo Del Toro's popular Satanic superhero adventure; and an "Encore Edition" of John Barry's electronic score for the 1985 hit thriller JAGGED EDGE starring Glenn Close, Jeff Bridges and an Oscar-nominated Robert Loggia, with the same music as the previous release but now for the first time with cue titles.

Varese Sarabande has also just announced a new, limited edition series which they are calling the "We Hear You Series," featuring scores requested by customers. Their first release, expected to begin shipping next week, will feature Lalo Schfirin's music from the 1979 gang drama BOULEVARD NIGHTS, with the same cues that were included on the original MCA soundtrack LP.

The "Last" Top Forty Countdown, Part Five: Composers On The Rise
Posted By: Scott Bettencourt 8/26/2016 - 9:00 PM
RYAN AMON 
 
AGE: Unavailable
BIRTHPLACE: Elkhorn, Wisconsin
REPRESENTATION: Gorfaine/Schwartz
BACKGROUND: McNally Smith College of Music, recipient of BMI Pete Carpenter Fellowship, trailer composer
TOP GROSSING FILMS:
1. Elysium--93 (U.S. gross in millions)
 
It was Ryan Amon’s work as a trailer composer that rapidly transformed him from a virtual unknown to the composer of a $100 million-plus Matt Damon sci-fi action movie from an Oscar-nominated filmmaker. Neill Blomkamp, whose feature debut District 9 was a box-office smash and a surprise Best Picture nominee, was inspired to hire Amon when he heard one of the composer’s trailer pieces on a fan-posted YouTube video, and signed him to score his sophomore feature, Elysium. The pair worked closely on the score, with Amon giving the film what he called “a melding of organic synthesis and orchestral instrumentation.” While grossing a respectable $93 million in the United States (and a much more impressive $193 million in other countries), the film was considered a disappointment, especially compared to the lauded District 9, and while at one point Amon was announced to score Blomkamp’s third feature, Chappie, that troubled film ended up with a Hans Zimmer score and was released last year to weak box-office and worse reviews. Though he has not yet scored another feature, he was one of several composers whose music was featured in Michael Mann’s 2015 cyberthriller Blackhat, and last year he scored the videogame Bloodborne
