THE BYE BYE MAN – Behind the Score with The Newton Brothers
The Newton Brothers have built a reputation in creating visceral themes for thriller and horror film; for THE BYE BYE MAN, they expand on that reputation by incorporating the pulsating off beat sounds of a washing machine to the haunting sounds of a train whistle. Both Grush and Stewart are accomplished multi instrumentalists who fuse their classical education with a skill and savvy in electronics and manipulated sounds to contribute distinct music to a diverse spectrum of film projects and capitalize on having two musical heads. The duo has collaborated with highly acclaimed composers: apprenticed under Hans Zimmer and co-scored with Danny Elfman on Mike Flanagan’s thriller, BEFORE I WAKE.

They have also added chills to Flanagan’s OCULUS, emotion to Tony Kaye’s acclaimed classroom drama DETACHMENT, tension to Mike Gunther’s crime thriller SETUP starring Bruce Willis, and black humor to PAWN SHOP CHRONICLES starring Paul Walker. They also lent their Newtonian approach to the dark comedy LIFE OF CRIME starring Jennifer Aniston, and the action/thriller THE PRINCE starring Bruce Willis and John Cusack. Their most recent project was the Universal Pictures’ Oct. 2016 horror film, OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL which was their fourth film collaboration with director Flanagan
