Expanded Remaster of Hans Zimmer’s 2002 Score to THE RING Released on CD
La-La Land Records, Paramount Pictures, and Geffen present a remastered and expanded, two-disc 20th Anniversary release of composer Hans Zimmer’s original motion picture score to the 2002 feature film supernatural thriller THE RING, starring Naomi Watts, and directed by Gore Verbinski. The film is a remake of Hideo Nakata’s 1998 Japanese horror film RING, based on Koji Suzuki’s 1991 eponymous novel. Watts portrays a journalist who investigates a cursed videotape that seemingly kills the viewer seven days after watching it.
This hit genre film united filmmaker Verbinski with maestro Zimmer, kicking off a powerhouse creative collaboration that has since become legendary. Zimmer’s score is a masterpiece of atmosphere – haunting, dreadful, beautiful, poignant, tense – it effectively envelops the film and the listener in an unforgettable sonic dreamstate. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this remastered and expanded CD release features the 23-track score presentation on Disc One and 17 additional music bonus tracks on Disc Two. The exclusive liner notes by film music journalist Kaya Savas feature a brand new interview with the film’s composer and director, and the sharp art direction is by Goldwasser.
This edition of THE RING is presented in a limited edition release of 3000 Units. Order it directly from La-La Land Records.
