  1. Caldera

    LADIES IN BLACK von Christopher Gordon

    "muss" sowieso nicht. Christopher Gordon bevorzugt es, seine Musik auf dem eigenen Label zu veröffentlichen. Für 'Out of Shadows' hatte er mehrere Angebote von Labels - unter anderem von uns - hat aber höflich abgelehnt. Das hat mit der Popularität der Filme gar nichts zu tun.
  2. Caldera Records is proud to present the score for the motion picture “Valley of Shadows” from 2017, directed by Jonas Matzow Gulbrandsen, featuring music by Zbigniew Preisner. The story of “Valley of Shadows” was inspired by a wide variety of sources, mostly going back to the director’s childhood: “I am interested in fables and allegories, in mythology and children’s tales, these stories that we often believe are regional but are actually extremely universal, sometime with a moral and often with joyful gravitas. One example is Draumkvedet (The Dream Poem), a Norwegian ballad from the Middle Ages. I read a lot when I was a child – traditional stories of course – but especially Swedish literature for children. As a child, I thought a lot and was hungry to learn. Reading Bruno Bettelheim was also something that I draw greatly from.” When it came to selecting the composer for the film, Gulbrandsen used his familiarity with the Polish film industry to get in touch with a living legend of the field. Born in Bielsko-Biała in 1955, Zbigniew Preisner has been composing music in his native Poland since the early 1980s. He is best-known for his work with Polish director Krzysztof Kieślowski on his epic “Three Colors” trilogy. The collaboration with Gulbrandsen was ground-breaking in more than one sense for the composer – it wasn’t only the fastest score he has ever realized, but it also introduced him to new concepts as he explains: “Jonas had the vision of having mostly electronic music, that it should be narration in film, and that it should be played from the beginning to the end. I am not fan of such usage of music in film but in this case, the director turned out to be right. The combination of symphonic and electronic music gave an amazing effect, though this was the first time I used so much electronics for a picture.” For the highlights of the score, the combination of electronic and symphonic elements is augmented by the voice of Lisa Gerrard who appears in both Valley of Shadows and Valley of Shadows – Wake Up. Connected by the middle passage entitled Odyssey, this 18-minute long, almost continuous segment underscores the moments as Aslak finds something he cannot comprehend. The 28th CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Gergely Hubai and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

  4. Der/die Clip(s) sind repräsentativ. Konzertantes/Opusmusik wirst du nur hören, wenn das Presswerk aus Versehen Beethovens Neunte auf deinen Silberling gepresst hat.
  5. Hm, vielleicht mag der Herr Riedrich uns auch einfach nicht. Nee, nee, fünf Minuten reichen schon.
  6. Super, wir haben einen Kunden! :) Die CD kannst du beim Soundtrackcorner ordern, sobald Herr Riedrich sich entscheidet, sie online zu stellen.
  7. Caldera Records is proud to present Christopher Young’s and Bob Badway’s concept album “The Lost Children of Planet X”. In the daily grind of film scoring, composers are often left with great bits of material that they love, but for various reasons were dropped from the scenes they were written for. Sometimes these pieces find new life in other films, sometimes they are buried forever, or sometimes they are resurrected – as in the case of Christopher Young and his latest album. Young’s re-working of these tracks into a concept album was something that started as a passion project, and it wasn’t until 2011 that this material was woven into the form we hear now. Precursors and inspirations for the music/dialogue include In Held ‘Twas In I by Procol Harum and Frank Zappa’s Lumpy Gravy as well as the Beatles’ 45ers. From the world of classical music, the primary inspirations were Luciano Berio’s Laborintus II, Ages by Bruno Maderna, and Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Gesang Der Jünglinge. “The Lost Children of Planet X” is very much a spoken word drama, filled with surrealism and dream logic. Explains writer Bob Badway: “When you listen to the album, you get an overall picture of what’s going on, but have trouble visualizing it because the details are screwy and everything seems to be in total contradiction.” The album is filled with Easter eggs in terms of casting and the lines delivered. Young himself appears as the booming voice of King Everett, while also delivering a few odd quips here and there, including his personal favorite, ‘Help me God, please help me!’ As a bonus, eight purely instrumental tracks are included that accompany the adventures in space. “The Lost Children of Planet X” is a highly unusual album – not only for Young and Caldera Records. We hope that people will find great joy in going on this 80-minute psychedelic trip. We had a blast working on it. The 27th CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Gergely Hubai, elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas and Helmut „Dino“ Breneis, who provided the original illustrations. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg. The Lost Children of Planet X 1. King Everett Speaks (18:05)* 2. X2 (11:08)** 3. Round and Round (27:41)* Bonus: 4. Chart I (2:52) 5.

  8. THE FIRST 100 COPIES ARE SIGNED BY JOE KRAEMER! (Check your retailer!) Caldera Records is proud to present the new score for the motion picture “Sunrise” from 1927, directed by F.W. Murnau, featuring music by Joe Kraemer, commissioned by the Dallas Chamber Symphony. Featuring enormous stylized sets in order to create an idealized view of the world, “Sunrise” tells the story of three characters with no real names given. The Man and The Wife had been living happily on their farm until the appearance of The Woman From The City, who seduced the husband prior to the beginning of the story. In order to get rid of the farm that is tying The Man to country life, The Woman From The City convinces him to get rid of The Wife by staging a boating accident. When The Man realizes he is unable to commit the deed, The Wife flees to the City. He follows her and they rediscover their love for each other in the exotic world of the City. In 2016, Joe Kraemer got the chance to prove himself as a masterful composer for silent film when he was commissioned by the Dallas Chamber Orchestra to write an original score for Murnau’s masterpiece. In terms of the overall picture, Kraemer shares his inspirations: “I created themes for each of the major characters and concepts in the film, and then used those themes to carry out the plot of the film. It is a highly programmatic composition. I was influenced by composers like Copland, Gershwin, and Strauss. Additionally, I had just finished a three-week stay in Austria when I began writing the score, and I was very influenced by the culture I experienced in the wonderful town of Baden.” The score had its world premiere, live-to-picture, in Dallas in October 2016, where it was conducted by Richard McKay. It had a second performance in August 2017 in Baden, Austria, where Kraemer himself conducted it live-to-picture with members of the Synchron Symphony Orchestra. A few weeks after the live performance, the orchestra reconvened at the Synchron Stage in Vienna to record selections from the score for this CD release. The 26th CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Gergely Hubai, an exclusive audio commentary by the composer, and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

  9. C6025 Caldera Records is proud to present the original score for the motion picture “Not Afraid, Not Afraid” from 2001, directed by Annette Carducci, featuring music by Gabriel Yared. It is a dramedy about a highly dysfunctional family, and a woman who must learn to become a better person when facing death. Paula is an attractive and smart psychologist whose series of self-help parenting guides are a big hit. Unfortunately, her own family life is quite catastrophic as her relationship with her own children and the husband she is divorced from is practically non-existent. When she gets convinced that she is suffering from cancer, Paula decides to solve at least some of her problems, but an attempt at reconciling her differences with her grown-up children Sarah and Matthew leads to more grievance and quarrels. Unfortunately, the film was never released in theatres, and therefore did not reach a wide audience. Even after the production company re-edited the movie, it decided against distributing it. For Gabriel Yared, “Not Afraid, Not Afraid” was a smaller, personal project that he still associates with pleasant memories, regardless of the film’s afterlife. For the recording, Gabriel Yared assembled the Modigliani Quartet, augmented by clarinettist Paul Meyer (now a well-known conductor), and famous jazz harmonica player Jean-Jacques Milteau. The score is built around a main theme that’s deceptively simple, as a piano motive receives some folksy undertones by the harmonica. The main theme is written for Tom and his constant optimism, which is then transferred to multiple instruments, including the guitar. There’s an inherent sweetness to the score whenever it focuses on the heart and soul of the story, providing a joyful accompaniment even when things don’t look so bright. The 25th CD-release of Caldera Records features a detailed booklet-text by Gergely Hubai and elegant artwork by Luis Miguel Rojas. The CD was produced by Stephan Eicke and John Elborg.

  10. Neuigkeiten gibt es immer. Wir haben nach Monaten jetzt das ganze Material da. Aber ich nenne lieber keinen Veröffentlichungstermin. Wir bringen vorher noch zwei andere Platten raus und dann ist der Chris, der Young an der Reihe. Jetzt bist du seit Monaten so angefixt, dass du nur enttäuscht werden kannst ;)
  11. Wir arbeiten derzeit an zwei weiteren Roy-Budd-Veröffentlichungen, sind aber erst im Anfangsstadium.
  12. Ja, kann ich und Nein, wird es nicht. Herr Young arbeitet derzeit an einem neuen Film und wird die Arbeit an unserem Album Mitte Mai fortsetzen, wenn der Film abgeschlossen ist.
