Film Fest Gent & Brussels Philharmonic proudly present a new album combining the best film scores by Cliff Martinez.
Cliff Martinez is a key figure in our time’s film scoring. In the 80’s, he began spending several years drumming with such acts as Captain Beefheart, The Dickies, Lydia Lunch and The Weirdos, and then joining the Red Hot Chili Peppers. His career is exemplary.
His experimental electronic music highlighted many cinematic masterpieces. He has been Steven Soderbergh’s regular composer (‘sex, lies and videotape’; ‘Traffic’; ‘Solaris’; ‘Contagion’) and he has been making a name for himself for a few years now scoring the two last films of visionary Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn, ‘Drive’ and ‘Only God Forgives’.
Cliff Martinez also scored the great ‘Spring Breakers’, ‘Arbitrage’ (Milan Records) and ‘The Company You Keep’ (Milan Records). We now hear about him as he has just scored the first Steven Soderbergh TV series ‘The Knick’ (starring Clive Owen), to be released by Milan Records as well.
This Film Fest Gent album combines the best film scores by Cliff Martinez (‘Solaris’; ‘Only God Forgives’; ‘The Company You Keep’; ‘Contagion’) arranged for orchestra and performed by the Brussels Philharmonic conducted by Dirk Brossé.
