Composer Elia Cmiral is proud to announce the release of the Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt? – Motion Picture Soundtrack. Cmiral previously composed the first film of the trilogy, based on the renowned and influential novel Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand. "I was thrilled when I received the phone call in April of 2014 from producers John Aglialoro and Harmon Kaslow, asking me to write music for the final part of the Atlas Shrugged trilogy," said Cmiral. "When we met a few days later, it felt like coming back home. I was overwhelmed by John and Harmon's enthusiasm as they recalled the work that I did on Atlas Shrugged: Part I and explained their expectations for the score of Atlas Shrugged Part III."
"[Elia's] passion and respect for Atlas Shrugged made him the ideal composer, and he's delivered a spectacular and memorable score. Each song reflects Elia's creativity and commitment, and he deserves recognition and acknowledgment for his talent and hard work. Elia is the music hero of the Atlas Shrugged movie trilogy for which we will forever hold his name in the highest esteem," said Kaslow and Aglialoro.
"At the time that I came on board, the editing of the movie was still in progress, so I had time to revisit thematic material from Part I as well as opportunities to discuss the new musical approach for Part III with producers," explained Cmiral. "We wanted to connect the first part and the last part of the trilogy to create a sense of continuity throughout the whole story, true to Ayn Rand's timeless novel."
"Elia gave us new creations as well as derivations of some of his music from Part I," said Kaslow and Aglialoro. "Elia found ways to integrate the John Galt Theme into some of his songs, which excellently ties the trilogy together."
"I feel fortunate to have been the composer for a rare project, in which I could passionately merge musical expression with philosophical concepts," said Cmiral.
Atlas Productions presents Atlas Shrugged Part III: Who Is John Galt? currently in theaters. The Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt? – Motion Picture Soundtrack is currently available digitally on CD directly from Atlas Productions, and will be available via iTunes and Amazon.com later this month.
