Earth Day can be a time of reflection, education or re-commitment to the world we live in. Lakeshore Records is proud to have partnered with filmmakers and composers on climate change and environmental projects such as through last year’s Before The Flood release in which we, along with composers Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, Gustavo Santaolalla and Mogwai, helped raise $10k for terrapass, a charity that works to offset carbon emissions.
This year, we are pleased to present National Geographic’s A Symphony For Our World, which premieres tonight. This, and other Earth Day films below feature music by some of the world’s most celebrated musicians and composers.
Looking back to 2016, it was a very good year for composer Antony Partos, when his score to Lakeshore Records release Sherpa picked up double wins for Best Feature Score at AACTA Awards (the Australian Oscars) and Best Soundtrack at the Australian Guild of Screen Composers (AGSC) Awards! Full list at APRA AMCOS. Prior to that, the Jennifer Peedom-directed film secured the prestigious BAFTA nomination. Let’s revisit Sherpa (below) and here’s to another winning year!
Discovery presents SHERPA, available now on Blu-ray/DVD (get it here) and on Digital (get it on iTunes).

For this Throwback Thursday, we take a look at Antony Partos and Sam Petty‘s score for The Rover, starring Guy Pearce (The Time Machine, L.A. Confidential) and Robert Pattinson (Remember Me, Like Water For Elephants). Directed by David Michôd (Animal Kingdom), The Rover film is a dystopian The Road-meets-Road Warrior thriller! Antony’s latest release on Lakeshore Records is the award-winning documentary, Sherpa, now airing on Discovery.
Antony Partos is one of Australia’s most awarded film composers. His numerous film credits include the Sundance Festival winning film, Animal Kingdom DISGRACE (starring Academy Award® nominee John Malkovich) and Accidents Happen (starring Academy Award® winner Geena Davis). Sam Petty has been sound designer and mixer on about 30 features, dozens of documentaries, theatre productions and countless short films, including Animal Kingdom, Lore and The Hunter, as well as additional sound work on titles including Academy Award® nominated film, The Grandmaster.
