THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH: Themes And Sketches album released – music by Jeff Russo – Original Score Forthcoming
Lakeshore Records is set today to digitally release THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH: Themes and Sketches, featuring music by Emmy-winning and Grammy®-nominated composer Jeff Russo (STAR TREK: PICARD, FARGO, OSLO). From the Showtime drama series starring Oscar nominees Chiwetel Ejiofor and Naomi Harris, the tracks offer a fascinating listen to the original character and relationship themes found in the score as they evolved in their early stages – whether orchestrated differently or stripped down to piano or organ sketches.
Inspired by the Walter Tevis novel of the same name and the iconic David Bowie film, THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH series follows a new alien character (Ejiofor) who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution and must confront his own past to determine our future. Harris plays Justin Falls, a brilliant scientist and engineer who must conquer her own demons in the race to save two worlds.
THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH is executive produced by Alex Kurtzman, Jenny Lumet, John Hlavin, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Heather Kadin, Aaron Baiers, Chiwetel Ejiofor and STUDIOCANAL’s Rola Bauer and Françoise Guyonnet. The series is produced by CBS Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Timberman/Beverly. STUDIOCANAL owns the rights for both Walter Tevis’ book as well as the Nicolas Roeg film with David Bowie. The series is distributed internationally by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
Says Russo: “Releasing Themes and Sketches was a way for me to share the process of creating the motifs and themes for the characters of the show as they were originally conceived. You can see different ways the themes can be played which eventually play out in the score.” Listen or purchase from these links.
THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH airs on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
