HANNIBAL: SEASON TWO SOUNDTRACKS NEXT MONTH
On September 2nd, 2014, Lakeshore Records will release Hannibal: Season Two - Volumes 1 & 2 Original TV Soundtracks digitally and then on CD on September 23rd. Composed by Brian Reitzell (Lost in Translation, Boss), each track on the soundtracks will contain music from an episode of the series.
From the press release:
"In this second season of HANNIBAL each episode is named after a Japanese food course," said Reitzell. "It kind of gave me the opportunity to exploit my deep affection with Japanese films."
Over the last decade and a half, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and music supervisor Brian Reitzell has been on a mission to further elevate the layer that music adds to a film's life. He has created his own unique method of scoring films, drawing equally from his experience as a recording and touring musician with bands such as Redd Kross and Air, and his massive nowledge of recorded music.
Acting as both music supervisor and composer, he often blurs the lines etween score, source music, and sound design. His vision is to create a eamless landscape of songs, score, and found music for each soundtrack. Brian's explorations of new sounds add unique character to visual images. He often has instruments custom built or even invented for individual film scores and wholeheartedly embraces the Brian Eno philosophy of the recording studio as his instrument. Brian has thrived on collaborations with musicians from outside the Hollywood film composer network and has worked with some of today's most acclaimed musical artists including Air, Richard James (Aphex Twin), Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine), Elliott Smith, Britt Daniel (Spoon), Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Explosions In The Sky, Fever Ray, Robert Plant, Daniel Lopatin and Ensemble Matheus.
"I'm a big fan of Toru Takemitsu. In watching a documentary on Takemitsu, I noticed a percussionist playing what looked to me like a bronze slit drum. A slit drum is an African tongue drum. This was made out of bronze," described Reitzell. "That drum, I use for especially for Hannibal when he's onscreen. It's just such an interesting, rich tone color."
Holy cow, I want to buy these for the covers alone.
