The Man From Snowy River Visits Varèse Sarabande's Office!

Office visitors are always fun! Yesterday's visitor was the legendary Bruce Rowland, composer of The Man From Snowy River, Return To Snowy River and Phar Lap! Bruce's stunning, pastoral and much much loved score for 1982's The Man From Snowy River is one of the best-selling Varèse Sarabande releases in history! Most definitely one of the early releases that this company was founded on. Lots of Varèse history in this photo, not to mention Bob Peak's portrait of Jerry Goldsmith, with Jerry looking over my shoulder! Bruce Rowland and Robert Townson. Beverly Hills, CA. January 27, 2016.


WHIPLASH was nominated in the category of Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media by The Grammy's!  The 58th Annual Grammy's hosted by LL Cool J will air February 15th from the Staples Center!

The WHIPLASH soundtrack consists of 24 tracks sequenced in 3 distinct parts: Original jazz songs written for the film, original underscore written for the film, and classic jazz standards by Stan Getz, Duke Ellington and more. There are also choice snippets of dialog included on the soundtrack that sum up the narrative of the film and help to put the music in context (à la Pulp Fiction). The Original Score & Big Band Songs were created by Justin Hurwitz. The original jazz songs were created by Grammy®-nominated composer, Tim Simonec.
