Gus Reyes
THE DARK SIDE OF LIGHT (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
MMS14007/KRONCD040

This powerful psychological thriller based on the true story of a serial killer who was sentenced to an electric chair execution and survived it.  This criminal justifies his murderers in the belief he’s a God’s chosen that has fulfilled a liberation mission of his victims. Using a symbolic language, this story exposes “Actions that prove killing in God’s name is an excuse to cover atrocious crimes”. Gus Reyes’ music is a very insightful journey through Memo’s state of mind. It is sad, dark and obscure, but sad above anything else. The composer choses the harp and the piano in this case to create an ostinato that portrays the movement of the main character’s thoughts in his voyage of becoming a religious serial killer.  Sacred music has been a great inspiration and it culminates in the Requiem. A very sensible and emotional score and a name to remember: Gus Reyes.

James T. Sale
JFK: A PRESIDENT BETRAYED (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
MMS14028

Narrated by Morgan Freeman, Cory Taylor’s documentary about John F. Kennedy uncovers new evidence that reveals how the president embarked on secret back channel peace efforts with Nikita Khrushchev and Fidel Castro, and was determined to get out of Vietnam. The controversial story and its intriguing message is beautifully and poignantly underscored by composer James T. Sale’s music, available soon in digital stores courtesy of MovieScore Media. Sale, who is combining his solo composing career with a busy schedule as a key member of acclaimed composer Mark Mothersbaugh’s team (Sale orchestrated and conducted scores for films such as The Lego Movie, Hotel Transylvania and Cloud with a Chance of Meatballs), has written a score which emphasizes the dark “behind-the-scenes” plot of the film, and scores historical events such as the Vietnam War and the Cuba blockade with urgent suspense-driving motifs. JFK gets a sombre piano theme, and elements of jazz also find its way into the score.  MovieScore Media’s release follows the US DVD release of the film.

Jeff Grace
HELLBENDERS (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
SWR14003

MovieScore Media and Screamworks Records have released a handful of ingenious horror scores penned by Jeff Grace, including The Last Winter, Stake Land and The Innkeepers. Grace’s latest score is for J.T. Petty’s Hellbenders, a hilarious horror comedy about the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints, a team of blasphemous ministers who live in a constant state of debauchery, working to drag the worst of demons back to Hell. As always, Grace’s music is both entertaining and musically interesting, and just like I Sell the Dead, it effectively combines straight-forward horror action scoring with tongue-in-cheek musical movements. A must have for any fan of Jeff Grace’s music!
