Score facilitator spreads wealth
From Variety Jan 10th 2013:
Launching this month, the service aims to simplify the process of licensing a traditionally convoluted area of music. The L.A.-based company has amassed 10,000 tracks of film music, with more than 165 composers represented, including Hans Zimmer, James Horner, Alexandre Desplat, John Barry and Jerry Goldsmith.
Hierons teamed with Seth Kaplan and Christine Russell, founders of talent agency Evolution Music Partners to develop a unique business model -- in short, to partner with rights holders, "untangle" the licensing process, and create a simple and elegant interface for a massive catalog of music.

Romeo and Juliet
Abel KorzeniowskiShakespeare’s beloved classic gets the Julian Fellowes treatment in this swooning new adaptation from the Oscar- and Emmy-winning creator of Downton Abbey, directed by Italian director Carlo Carlei (The Flight of the Innocent) and starring Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) in the title roles. The first such screen adaptation actually shot in the Italian city of Verona where it takes place, the sumptuous all-star production co-stars Damian Lewis, Natascha McElhone, Stellan Skarsgård, Tom Wisdom, Laura Morante and Kodi Smit-McPhee.» Read full feature
Any new screen approach to Romeo and Juliet, of course, faces daunting comparison not just with the beloved 1968 Franco Zeffirelli production but with that film’s immortal Nino Rota score. Credit Polish composer Abel Korzeniowski (A Single Man, Escape from Tomorrow) for courageously giving the new film a musical signature that not only defies such comparisons, but which embraces a bold new dramatic sensibility. Impassioned and grand where Rota was romantic and intimate, Korzeniowski deploys the full force of the orchestra in such tracks as “Forbidden Love,’ “A Thousand Times Goodnight” and the piano-accentuated “Death is My Heir,” trading Rota’s and Zeffirelli’s dreamy melancholia for an unapologetically bright and celebratory embrace of the tale’s tragic trajectory. Where Rota underlined the essential sadness of a great love cut short, Korzeniowski highlights the majesty and triumph of a great love that ought never have come to pass. The same approach imbues the story’s otherwise ominous narrative intrigues with the buoyancy of a dance – tracks like “The Cheek of Night,” the furious “Fortune’s Fool” and “Tempt Not a Desperate Man” generating an undertow of suspense in a film where few will not already know the outcome. It is an assured, bravura effort, scintillatingly orchestrated, invigoratingly executed.
Clinton ShorterDenzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg star for Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur (101 Reykjavik, Contraband) in this 2013 action-thriller based on the graphic novel about a DEA agent and an NCIS agent forced to team up after realizing they’ve been set up by the CIA.» Read full feature
Best known for his acclaimed District 9 score, Canadian composer Clinton Shorter – who previously collaborated with Kormákur and Wahlberg for Contraband – here delivers a thundering suspenser of a score that vacillates between rhythmic, guitar-accented orchestral and acoustic suspense cues and funky throwback rock-and-blues grooves that play like the bigger, badder, nastier brother to David Holmes’ three scores for Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s films. The former is best exemplified by such tracks as “Deserve to Be,” “Special Beans” and “Trucks” while the latter fields its attitude on memorable, catchy tracks like “63 Impala,” “Money,” “The Tracks” and “Sorry Sir.”
Justin Caine BurnettWriter/director Conor Allyn (Hearts of Freedom) directs Kellan Lutz and Ario Bayu in this exotic action thriller set on the Indonesian Island of Java where an American visitor (Lutz) must team with a local detective (Bayu) to find the perpetrators of a deadly suicide bombing, putting them on an unexpected collision course with an international jewel thief named Malik (Mickey Rourke).» Read full feature
A former associate of such renowned feature composers as Hans Zimmer and Harry Gregson-Williams, composer Justin Caine Burnett (Iron Cross) merges the unrelenting adrenaline rush of propulsive rock-inflected action music with the exotic timbre of traditional Turkish saz-baglama dance music. At times the combination takes on a retro flavor – Led Zeppelin attempted a similar hybrid in such famous tracks as “Kashmir,” which “Sunset Red Light (Black Submarine),” among others, here resembles. The approach yields several noteworthy variations –suspenseful (“Investigation”), eerie (“Temple Pursuit”) and devastatingly intense (“Stealing the Crown Jewels,” “Motorcycle Chase”). Alternatingly calm and explosive, Burnett’s is a thundering heartbeat of a score – unrelenting and unpredictable, yet always reliable.
Escape From Tomorrow
Abel KorzeniowskiWriter/director Randy Moore’s controversial, kinetically experimental black-and-white debut film emerged as one of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival’s most talked-about hits, a hallucinatory look at one man’s impending madness in the unlikeliest of locales.» Read full feature
A deeply impressionistic yet sweepingly romantic musical snapshot of the pulse and passion of the Magic Kingdom, this collection of unapologetically old-fashioned cues from Polish composer Abel Korzeniowski – best known for his award-winning original score for A Single Man (2009) as well as a new 2004 score for Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent classic Metropolis – harks back to the style of such Golden Era Hollywood composers as Hugo Friedhofer and Fred Steiner, as well as later keepers of the flame like Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams. Wringing buckets of melodramatic inflection from his energetic orchestrations in tracks like “Gates of Tomorrow” and “Magic Kingdom,” Korzeniowski plunges the audiences into a swirling vortex of irony, setting them up for the psychological disconnect to ensue – brilliantly captured in the unexpectedly dissonant and minimalistic electronic tracks “Lost in Caves” and “Creepy Guy on a Scooter.”
Nikolaj EgelundThomas Vinterberg (The Celebration) directs Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) in this 2012 Danish drama about a small town teacher who finds himself ostracized by the community after he is wrongly accused of molesting a child.» Read full feature
Thick with angst and brimming with sadness, veteran Danish television composer Nikolaj Egelund attaches his melancholic themes to Mikkelsen’s Lucas like a ball-and-chain, the mournful strains of acoustic guitar backed by the moan of regretful strings in “The Hunt Theme” and “Arrival Manor House” speaking most forcefully to the film’s pervasive sense of tragedy. Other tracks, like “Supermarket” and “Dog’s Funeral” almost qualify more as sound design than score, their low, rumbling drone engineered more for visceral and aural disruption than any intentional musical effect.
