La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures proudly present the remastered and expanded presentation of acclaimed composer James Horner's (STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN, ALIENS, GLORY, TITANIC) original motion picture score to the 1992 feature film dramatic thriller PATRIOT GAMES, starring Harrison Ford, James Earl Jones, Anne Archer and Sean Bean, and directed by Phillip Noyce. Horner's intense, Irish-tinged score expertly supports and builds this political thriller's complex characterizations, brooding intrigue and white-knuckle suspense. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Mike Matessino, Horner's PATRIOT GAMES score is finally given the deluxe treatment it deserves in this 2-CD set, which contains more than 50 minutes of previously unreleased music. Exclusive liner notes by writer Jim Lochner take you behind-the-scenes of the film and its score. This is a limited edition of 3000 Units.
A California real estate dispute may hardly seem the foundation for riveting drama, but in director Vadim Perelman's adaptation of Andre Dubus II's novel it becomes an unflinching, yet crucially non-judgmental study of disparate characters caught up in a spiraling conflict where home is considerably more than a place to live. Composer James Horner takes the medium-budget project as an opportunity to break with much of the melodic expectations of his Hollywood fare, coloring the film's more personally-scaled drama with an introspective score that turns on masterful musical evocations of mood and emotion. Horner begins with a deft electronic/orchestral synthesis ("An Older Life") that both recalls some of T-Dream's more evocative cinematic moments and subtly sets up the score's melancholy emotional tone.
