Our third album with acclaimed composer Jeff Grace (The Last Winter), this release features the two scores he has written for director Ti West: his new thriller, Trigger Man, and 2005’s cult hit The Roost, a score previously only available as a download. Continuing to impress with his highly original voice, Grace has composed a truly eerie score for Trigger Man, “a story of three hunters who mysteriously became the hunted,” employing minimalist techniques and making extensive use of echo delay throughout the film – Trigger Man is a score that is remarkable in that it is emotionally intense despite the fact that it’s musically restrained.
More of a wild ride is the inventive and avant garde score for The Roost, which was hailed by reviewers when it came out originally as a MovieScore Media download album in 2006: “I have no problem calling The Roost one of the most satisfying and memorable horror scores of the past few years,” Soundtrack.net wrote, and Rue Morgue wrote: “Nostalgic and brilliantly inventive, Grace goes beyond the physical limitations of his string quartet to create an extraordinarily organized collage of shrilling violins, nasty celli and close-mic’ed Celtic percussion.”
