Lakeshore Records will release the THE SESSIONS – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally in stores today, November 13, 2012. The album features original music by Marco Beltrami.
Award winning composer Marco Beltrami established an early reputation as a genre innovator with non-traditional horror scores for the Scream franchise, Hellboy, Blade II and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. Upon completing undergraduate studies at Brown University, Marco Beltrami entered the Yale School of Music on a scholarship. His pursuit of music composition then lead him to Venice for a period of study with the Italian master, Luigi Nono and then finally to Los Angeles to undertake a fellowship with Academy Award -winning composer, Jerry Goldsmith.
Shortly after arriving in Los Angeles, Marco Beltrami landed Wes Craven's Scream. After Scream, he went on to write his critically acclaimed score for Guillermo Del Toro's Mimic. This was the first of several collaborations with Del Toro, including Hellboy and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. Beltrami's musical palette has since expanded to virtually all film genres. Beltrami has received two Academy Award nominations for Best Score. First, for 3:10 To Yuma, starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, and shortly after for his score to the Academy Award winning film for Best Picture, The Hurt Locker. Beltrami's score for Soul Surfer won the 2012 Satellite Awards for Best Film Score of The Year. His most recent project is Trouble with the Curve starring Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams. Beltrami has lent his musical voice to such unique hit films as Live Free or Die Hard, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Knowing and I, Robot. His recent scores include The Woman in Black, The Thing, and Deadfall.
Based on the poignantly optimistic autobiographical writings of California–based journalist and poet Mark O'Brien (John Hawkes), THE SESSIONS tells the story of a man who lived most of his life in an iron lung who is determined - at age 38 - to lose his virginity. With the help of his therapist (Helen Hunt) and the guidance of his priest (William H. Macy), he sets out to make his dream a reality.
The Sessions – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from Lakeshore Records is available digitally and in stores today, November 13, 2012.
