2015:  April 14: INTRADA announces RED EYE
Catch a flight to terror with premiere release of exciting Marco Beltrami soundtrack from Wes Craven air travel thriller! Rachel McAdams is the passenger, Cillian Murphy is her seatmate, terror is the name of the game. Beltrami sets both mood and pulse from the outset with lean, suspenseful ideas for strings and French horn over steady rhythm in percussion & keyboards, with low brass outbursts slashing through all. As the suspense increases, so do the above musical devices, culminating in aggressive, dynamic action music for the entire orchestra. Interestingly, Beltrami relies heavily on French horn, bass trombone to bring intensity to his score but omits trumpet. Resulting action sequences are grim, darker-edged, powerful! Crisp recording, dynamic performances create vibrant audio, lengthy cues create coherency. Another exciting asset: generous maxed-out CD playing time. Film itself is scored nearly wall-to-wall with numerous cues playing front and center. All of them (plus two "extras") are presented in stereo from pristine condition digital scoring session mixes courtesy Paramount Pictures. Marco Beltrami composes, Pete Anthony conducts. Intrada Special Collection CD available while quantities and interest remain!

After a while, it's time for another recap of the upcoming films featuring music by Marco Beltrami. The composer is currently busy working on the upcoming FANTASTIC FOUR, which is being co-scored by Philip Glass. Here is a little quote about their collaboration: ďWeíre sending sketches back and forth right now. Composing is pretty much a solitary business. Buck and I are unusual. Weíve been working together for 17 years. Itís sort of unique. Collaborating with somebody, sharing ideas, takes some time to get up to speed. One of the things I like is, as you work, you figure out thereís another way to approach it. Itís how you grow and learn.Ē The film's first trailer was released and added to the January 6th post below.

If anything, the music invites a depth of introspection upon which the screenplay canít quite deliver."
