Lakeshore Records sat down with composer Bobby Johnston to talk about his experience scoring the David Mamet film, Edmond, directed by Stuart Gordon and stars William H. Macy, Mena Suvari, Denise Richards, Bokeem Woodbine and Julia Stiles (buy the DVD here).  Listen now as we get a behind-the-scenes “peek” of Bobby’s experience scoring on Edmond, including funny anecdotes such as the challenges he faced mixing and recording his score in his studio while a noisy construction project tried to get in his way everyday.

Bobby’s latest score on Lakeshore Records is for City Of Gold, out now digitally (get it here).

 

William H. Macy’s Acclaimed ‘Rudderless’ Movie Debuts On Starz, Own The Soundtrack!

The most pleasantly surprising element of Rudderless is its soundtrack. The songs, most of which are actually performed by the Rudderless band (Crudup, Yelchin, Ben Kweller, and Ryand Dean, and primarily written by Simon Steadman and Charlton Pettus) are melodious and endearing, both humorous and moving. Crudup and Yelchin prove talented musicians. – Under The Radar

 

Director William H. Macy’s directorial debut in Rudderless, is now available On Demand via Starz — watch it tonight on Starz Edge at 10:10 p.m. ET!  Starring Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Felicity Huffman, Selena Gomez and Laurence Fishburne, and rocker Ben Kweller (who made his acting debut), film critic Daniel Schweiger says, “Not since Prince’s end set of Purple Rain has a movie singer ripped his guts out to such powerful effect, if done here to understandably more lyrically strumming resonance for one of this year’s most powerfully moving film scenes.”

The critically-acclaimed Rudderless Soundtrack also features performances by the Rudderless Band (Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Ben Kweller, Ryan Dean).

Paramount Home Media presents RUDDERLESS, available now on Starz (check availability), On Demand (rent it on iTunes) and on Blu-ray/DVD (get it here).

The score begins to grow darker and more complex as Ma plots their escape. Once outside “Room,” it reflects her difficulty adjusting to the outside world (with manipulated piano and lonely woodwinds). It culminates in a soaring orchestral piece — a wallop of hopeful melody as the film fades to black. – Tim Grieving and Jon Burlingame, Variety
