Original score from the 2023 action thriller feature film directed by Timo Vuorensola, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Alec Baldwin and MyAnna Buring, produced by Lighthouse Pictures and Orwo Studios, released by Vertical Entertainment (USA).
THE STORY: A ticking clock scenario unfolds as a hijacked 767 airplane faces imminent disaster when its fuel supply dwindles, with just 97 minutes remaining.
THE SCORE: “The creepy terrorists theme which you hear throughout the score is performed on a rather unusual bowed instrument the Yayli Tambur by soloist Evgenios Voulgaris. It’s actually a Turkish instrument so not strictly geographically correct to the location of the bad-guys in this movie, and written in the Ukrainian Dorian scale so quite a mashup – but gives it an exotic other-worldly flavour. The theme for Alex the protagonist (played by Rhys Meyers), which again is woven throughout the score, which you hear mostly on celli is designed to be a hero theme but it plays out in a number of different ways, as his character does!” – Ian Livingstone
