IN FROM THE NIGHT/SILVER BELLS
Composed, Orchestrated and Conducted by MARK McKENZIE
INTRADA Signature Edition ISE1008

For this Signature Edition release, INTRADA showcases two sensitive, beautiful scores for Hallmark Hall of Fame productions. IN FROM THE NIGHT (2006) tells the story of a writer's carefully ordered life that is turned upside down when her 16-year-old nephew, Bobby, unexpectedly arrives at her doorstep. Bobby is an ominous creature, and the center of an ongoing family tug-of-war.

In SILVER BELLS (2005), Anne Heche plays a lonely widow who unexpectedly and reluctantly finds love. She takes on a 16-year old photography student who had run away from his father while visiting New York. Single father and son reunite a year later, and father falls in love with the lonely widow. Based on Luanne Rice's bestselling novel, Rice wrote the novel as a love letter to the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.

When Mark McKenzie scored these films, he latched onto the common themes of unconditional love in family life. For IN FROM THE NIGHT, McKenzie underscores the childlike simplicity of Bobby's traumatized character and the unconditional acceptance he received from his aunt. In SILVER BELLS, McKenzie infuses the movie with a sense of wonderment amidst the loneliness and family conflict that surfaces around the holidays. Both are warm, orchestral scores and a perfect complement to each other.

This release is limited to 1000 copies.
