Film music critic Daniel Schweiger has announced his “Best Scores of 2014” at Film Music Magazine, and of the top 10 on the list, James Newton Howard’s score for Nightcrawler was named, plus five more film scores released by Lakeshore Records had other honorable mentions. See the list below.
Garth Stevenson’s score seems to take its cues directly from nature, undulating in sync with the film’s shifting rhythms.
Available now: Tracks (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), original music by Garth Stevenson. Stevenson, a classically trained and renowned double bassist delivers a score which follows the inner struggle and emotional journey of Robyn Davidson, a young woman who defied convention in 1977 to embark on a 1,700-mile personal odyssey across the Australia Outback (from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean).
Tracks, the film, is based on the inspiring real life adventure of Robyn Davidson (played by Mia Wasikowska) who traversed across the Australian Outback in 1977, over 1,700 miles (from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean) on a personal trek. Much of the journey was documented by National Geographic Photographer Rick Smolan (played by Adam Driver), who discovered her while on assignment. The resulting photographs and Davidson’s subsequent memoir became a worldwide sensation, and forms the basis of the film.
Tracks is a one of a kind cinematic venture that only comes around every decade or so. –Huffington Post
