Lakeshore Records will release the Confirmation – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on April 15 and on CD May 27, 2016. The album features the film's original score by Harry Gregson-Williams.
"Confirmation was a particularly rewarding undertaking because of its focus on an incredibly important moment in American history," said Gregson-Williams. "I was immediately struck by how neutral the film stayed, offering very intimate and complex glimpses into both Clarence Thomas' and Anita Hill's lives while this trial was occurring,"
"From my perspective, there were four different thematic areas that needed exploration musically: Anita's psyche, Clarence's psyche, the semi-omniscient, procedural perspective offered by the archival news footage, and the circus-like absurdity that encompassed the judicial system and the media during the scandal," Gregson-Williams explained. "Through a mixture of rhythmic textures, achieved through the use of string obstinate and interweaving synth pulse patterns, I tried to create a sense of impetus and energy which reminds the audience of how high the stakes were during the course of this historical event."
Confirmation airs on HBO on Saturday, April 16 at 8:00 p.m.
