La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures proudly present the world premiere release of acclaimed composer Howard Shore’s (LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS) original motion picture score to the 1993 feature film thriller SLIVER starring Sharon Stone, William Baldwin and Tom Berenger, and directed by Phillip Noyce. Renowned composer Shore unleashes a mesmerizing orchestral score – a broiling and seductive noirish brew of sensuality and danger that proves to be a perfect complement to the film’s psychological deep dive into mystery, sex and murder. A notable 90’s score from a powerhouse talent, SLIVER is finally here for film music fans with its debut release in any format. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by James Nelson, this special presentation includes bonus tracks of additional music Christopher Young composed for the film and exclusive, in-depth liner notes by writer Daniel Schweiger, along with sharp art design by Goldwasser. This is a limited edition release of 1000 units.

Does anyone know the story behind Young's involvement? Was he hired later or hired first? The Shore track samples are nice but also reminiscent enough of Young's sound that I wondered if it was either temped with Young or previously scored by him. Maybe just surface similarities but I got a distinctly Youngian vibe.

From the precious Torn Music : Rejected Film Scores book, Chris Young came late into the process to rescore the finale after re-shootings. It is unsaid if Shore was called back and couldn't rework or didn't want to rework his own score.



I don't think I can quote the book because of some copyright issues -- and honestly, everybody should own this book, it's really pleasant to read and so informative.

I also own this one. It's a really great book, and Christopher Young wrote the introduction too!

I think Paramount was trigger happy in that era, cos' they did Takemitsu's RISING SUN the same way (Richard Marriott additional music), and JENNIFER 8 of course.

Rising Sun is a 20th Century Fox release if I remember correctly, at least it was here in Europe.

I'm sure it's covered in the notes in some fashion, but as I recall this film had a very troubled history and it went though a number of changes and they went back and filmed several different endings.

As I recall Chris was called in at the last minute since either Howard Shore was unavailable or They thought a new compose for the final endingr might SAVE the film.

I'm happy for this release and it does plug holes in both Howard Shore's and Chris Young's catalog.
