NOMINATED FOR THE 2009 IVOR NOVELLO AWARD FOR ' BEST ORIGINAL FILM SCORE'
NOMINATED FOR THE 2008 'DISCOVERY OF THE YEAR' WORLD SOUNDTRACK AWARD

"An urgent, discordant score (by Benjamin Wallfisch) whose naturalistic taps and groans reduce the need for visible brutality." - New York Times

"I've got to give a special shout out to Benjamin Wallfisch, who's work on the score in this incredible. The music in this is half of what made it so awesome. Bravo Benjamin Wallfisch for composing one of my favorite scores of 2008." - FirstShowing.net

"A high-adrenaline soundtrack  fittingly melodramatic score." - In Review Online

"Fantastic incidental music..." - DVD Fever

In our second collaboration with composer Benjamin Wallfisch (the first one was Dear Wendy), we present the strikingly original, highly emotional and unusual score he wrote for Rupert Wyatt's acclaimed thriller The Escapist.

Our online release of the score co-incides with the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA)'s nomination of the score for the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Best Original Film Score and follows the US theatrical release of the film (the CD will be released in a couple of weeks, on May 5). The UK production won honours both at the British Independent Film Awards and the Scottish BAFTA Awards and 29-year old Benjamin Wallfisch's score was nominated for the World Soundtrack Award for 'Discovery of the Year,' (just as his previous score, Dear Wendy was, in 2005). It is a score that has been singled out by many film reviewers as one of the film s most strikingly effective elements. Building and developing his score around an aggressive main theme in 7/8 meter, Wallfisch juxtaposes elements of heartbreaking beauty with adrenaline-pumping orchestral music and hard-hitting electronica. The amalgamation of these diverse elements results in a truly unique listening experience both in the film context and on its own!
