Lakeshore Records announces today the release of Your Honor Season 1—Original Series Soundtrack featuring original score by Volker Bertelmann (Lion, Patrick Melrose). The Academy Award®, Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice Award, and BAFTA-nominated composer is renowned for pushing the boundaries of the craft and here, he’s able to utilize his talents on eclectic instruments such as prepared piano and diverse percussion instruments to provide an otherworldly backdrop to the dramatic thriller. The album is out now digitally on all major music services. View the tracklist and listening links below.
On this Throwback Thursday, we take a look at the Academy Award®-nominated Trumbo film, starring Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren and Elle Fanning. The film also earned a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance By A Cast in a Motion Picture, shared by the entire cast. If you haven’t seen the film, then this is the time to not only view one of the best films of 2016, but to watch one of Elle Fanning’s previous performances before seeing her in starring role as “Ray” in 3 Generations, in theaters Friday, May 5!
For film music fans, check out this interview with the film’s composer Theodore Shapiro (St. Vincent, Secret Life Of Walter Mitty) on his score to Trumbo:
With dialogue almost as snappy and effervescent as the jazzy score, Trumbo and crew subvert and foil the enemy. The mix of drama and humor works well here and comedic backgrounds of many of Trumbo’s stars becomes an incredible asset, adding almost perfect timing to many a line-reading. – Consequence of Sound
Trumbo is timely in its portrayal of a moment when political speech is dangerously charged, yet unabashedly old-fashioned in the sincerity of its storytelling. – Los Angeles Times

I couldn’t help but expect a film score that was inspired by Jan Hammer’s music from “Miami Vice” or a variety of electronic scores that were very popular at the time. But the film’s composer, Chris Hajian, ended up creating something much more modern, and it acts as Robert’s conscience as he sinks deeper into a world of crime he may not get out of alive. – The Ultimate Rabbit
Composer Chris Hajian talks to The Ultimate Rabbit about his modern take on an ’80s-era synth score for The Infiltrator, directed by The Lincoln Lawyer‘s Brad Furman. Based on a true story, the film takes place in the 1980s, as Bob Mazur (Bryan Cranston) goes undercover to take down Pablo Escobar’s Medellín cartel. Read the full interview here.

He builds actual string arrangements (not synthetic) into the mix. It’s a daring piece of composition for the synth heavy piece and lends an organic, human layer to the darkness… Hajian’s music throbs and pumps and washes its way through waves of synths and beats, but never loses sight of that humanity.” – Cut Print Film
