The Desert Dancer composer sits down for 5 questions with Varese!
1. Describe your latest soundtrack on Varese.
I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to score Desert Dancer, a very special movie about freedom of expression, and the lengths a young artist living in a repressive regime will go to in order to seek it out. It’s an inspiring true story where strength, courage and passion come together, and where we are reminded that art has the power to elevate us above our struggles, sometimes in a profound way. I’m so grateful to be continuing my collaboration with Bob Townson and all the wonderful team at Varèse Sarabande - their passion for film music knows no bounds.
Varèse Sarabande will release THE DOVEKEEPERS – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on April 7, 2015 and coming soon on CD. The limited event miniseries features original music by Jeff Beal (HOUSE OF CARDS, MONK). The 2CD set features almost two and half hours of music from the CBS miniseries about the siege of Masada. A special suite of the music is being created by Beal and will be premiered at the Krakow Film Music Festival (May 27-31) in Poland.
Take a behind the scenes look into the making of the dance sequences for Desert Dancer. The film releases on April 10th. Soundtrack out April 7th on digital download and April 14th on CD.
