MovieScore Media Releases Swedish Horror Score to FEED by Oscar Fogelström

The score contains two prominent themes: for the main theme I wanted a melody that could be used in both positive and darker sequences; Märit’s theme represents the mythical witch who is haunting the island. It’s basically an antagonist theme, but it also appears in a few other situations in the film. The instrumentation is organic/electronic where the organic instruments are nyckelharpa and other traditional Swedish instruments with live percussion by Jesper Skarin. Since the witch wears a mask with a bell, we had Jesper do a lot of metallic sounds, including bowed cymbals and different bells. There are also quite a lot of vocal elements in the score…

Disney’s Live Action Pinocchio Soundtrack is Out – Scored by Alan Silvestri

Released last week by Walt Disney Records, the music & song soundtrack to Robert Zemeckis’ live-action remake of PINOCCHIO for Disney features score by the director’s long-time collaborator Alan Silvestri… Silvestri used the songs as a resource, along with an accordion to evoke a bit of Old World Italy for Geppetto’s shop. Silvestri explained, “Even though the film takes place at a much earlier time in history, I didn’t feel that we had to limit ourselves to period music. In a film like this, with these big action sequences, there’s a great range of musical needs, a lot of music that had to be written. But it really comes back to the emotional arc of the characters. These were very emotional scenes and adventures and things happening that are timeless and universal – friendship and danger, mystery and fantasy, all these things. So, the film seemed to really be able to take and handle a tremendous musical range.”
