Guardians Of The Galaxy Orchestrator Timothy Williams Scores On Red Sky!

With every film he composes, Composer Timothy Williams (The Darkest Hour, Super, Doomsday) embues his music with the heart of the story.  Lakeshore Records is excited to announce the release of Red Sky (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), with music by Timothy Williams.  Williams is also the Orchestrator for Guardians of the Galaxy, scored by Composer Tyler Bates (The Darkest HourSuperDoomsday, Watchmen), opening this weekend.  Red Sky (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) comes out on Tuesday, August 5th, but you can pre-order the album today.

Collaborating with Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Tyler Bates, Williams’ goal was to realize Bates’ musical objectives and Director James Gunn’s underlying message of an intergalactic “family” comprised of a rag-tag group of space-criminals with heart.  The film has been described as a space opera — Marvel‘s answer to Star Wars.  With all the high adventure, pageantry and epic destruction, the comparison is an easy one.  With a team like Tyler Bates and Timothy Williams painting in the colors of the universe through the film score, expect the cosmos at your ears.
