With his intense orchestral score for the Michael Madsen action thriller Chasing Ghosts, Scott Glasgow recently emerged as one of the most exciting new composers scoring films in Los Angeles. Now, MovieScore Media proudly presents this score, an online album featuring nearly 70 minutes of dark, beautiful, aggressive and suspenseful music performed by the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra in Bratislava, conducted by film music veteran Alan Wilson.
After Chasing Ghosts, Glasgow has had an intense scoring schedule, including the science fiction epic Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles, horror films Hack! and Nailed as well as thrillers Toxic and The Gene Generation. Classically trained (he studied composition with John Corigliano among others, and has been an assistant to Michael Tilson Thomas), Glasgow has a personal voice and writes music that has a strong emotional quality.Scott Glasgow explains in the liner notes for the album that one of the things he really likes about certain film scores is "the use of architecture - not just thematic development". For instance, he used a passacaglia for all murder scenes, different keys for specific moments in the film - and the leitmotif techniqe for the identification of the different characters.
Chasing Ghosts was directed by Kyle Dean Jackson and produced and written by Alan Pao. Besides Michael Madsen, the cast included Gary Busey, Michael Rooker, Danny Trejo and Shannyn Sossamon.
Chasing Ghosts: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is available from Apple's iTunes store on November 7, 2006, and will soon be available to purchase and download in high quality mp3 format from http://www.moviescoremediashop.com.
