Ben & Nick Foster’s THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO Series 2 Soundtrack set for Aug 23
On August 23rd, Silva Screen Records will release THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO – Series 2, Ben and Nick Foster’s updated soundtrack to the iconic TV series. Their score for the second series of the animated show, based on the classic Gerry Anderson series from the 1960s, features synths, various electronics, and full orchestra, following composer Barry Gray’s heritage of employing a vast array of brass and percussion.
Making good use of leitmotifs to signal characters, moods and machines, the composing duo created a completely up to date sound, whilst retaining reverence for the original.
ITV’s THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO is now screened in more than 40 countries worldwide and Silva Screen’s third compilation from the series features music from Series Two. The music from the series has previously received a BAFTA nomination.
Ben Foster is a three time BAFTA nominated composer whose scores include TORCHWOOD, HIDDEN KINGDOMS, HAPPY VALLEY, OUR GIRL and as the orchestral arranger and conductor for 99 episodes of DOCTOR WHO. Brother Nick is a BAFTA winning composer whose work includes THE CUBE and DERREN BROWN Specials.
“The Fosters are on top form giving those big moments (and there are lots of them) the blast they need but also serving quieter moments, such as undersea or in space, with more interesting and curious themes and melodies,” wrote Cameron K McEwan in a review of the new series first episode for Den Of Geek. “Just as Murray Gold did with Doctor Who, the music is an absolute rock and lifts the show to a cinematic level.”
The album will be released on August 23rd; details will follow at http://www.silvascreenusa.com/
