Deadline (original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (CD)
Release Date: 04/10/10
Scoring his first major feature film, young composer Carlos Jos' Alvarez impresses with the stylish maturity and elegant orchestral writing of a gifted professional who we believe will belong to the Hollywood film scoring elite in the future. Born of Cuban immigrants, Alvarez is also an accomplished percussionist, but the score for Deadline is very much focused on long melodic lines, beautiful string writing and a very strong sense of atmosphere. Rather than hitting every dark note throughout the story (although there certainly are such moments as well), Alvarez gives this supernatural thriller an emotional quality that makes it shine among thriller and horror scores. Deadline sadly became young actress Brittany Murphy's last film. We dedicate this album to her memory.
