The film, based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen by Jane Hawking, is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (Man on Wire).

The score for The Theory of Everything is by Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson who has created music for many films including his recent work scoring director Denis Villeneuvue’s film Prisoners and Josh C. Waller’s McCanick. Jóhannsson’s intricate compositions provide a stunning backdrop to the romantic drama about Stephen and Jane Hawking, portrayed in the film by Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables) and Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spider-Man 2).

Cerrone

Brigade Mondaine - The Original Soundtracks Anthology (3xLP Box Set)

    Numbered box set limited to 1,000 units worldwide. Includes a 4-page 30cm x 30cm poster-booklet with photos and biographic notes.

    LP1: 'Vol 1. Brigade Mondaine' (1978) (International title: "Vice Squad")
    LP2: 'Vol 2. Vaudou Aux Caraibes' (1980) (International title: "Super Witch of Love Island")
    LP3: 'Vol 3. La Secte De Marrakesh' (1979) (International title: "Marrakesh Cult").

    Three albums recorded to keep a promise to a friend. But three albums that, retrospectively, are amongst French producer Marc Cerrone's most cherished, especially abroad. Rumour has it that James Murphy, boss of the DFA label and heart of LCD Soundsystem, has a soft spot for some of the music on these three soundtracks. They were born in Saint-Tropez on a yacht. Cerrone used to spend his holidays there and he met with his friend Gérard de Villiers, who talked to him about the cinema adaptation of his Brigade Mondaine novels and asked him if he was interested in writing the music. Cerrone agreed, and, a man of his word, he didn't withdraw, even though he was not interested that much. He put a lot of himself into the job and a fair amount of creativity. Alone in the studio, he composed on the synthesizer, used pre-recorded vocal tapes, and played percussion on a record that would become the soundtrack of the first film of the series. Two others followed, recorded the same way, with a tropical flavor to the third to fit its atmosphere. Then Cerrone, feeling free of his moral contract with De Villiers after three records, declined to write the music for the SAS movie. Too bad - it might have prevented it from drowning.


    Alexandre Desplat

    The Imitation Game OST - Red Vinyl Edition

    Starring Keira Knightley, Benedict Cumberbatch and Matthew Goode, The Imitation Game portrays the race against time by Alan Turing and his team of top-secret British code-breakers during the darkest days of World War II. The film spans the key periods of Turing’s life: his unhappy teenage years at boarding school; the triumph of his secret wartime work on the revolutionary electro-mechanical bombe that was capable of breaking 3,000 Enigma-generated naval codes a day; and the tragedy of his post-war decline following his conviction for gross indecency, a now-outdated criminal offence stemming from his admission of maintaining a homosexual relationship.

    The soundtrack is composed by Golden Globe and Grammy Award winning French composer Alexandre Desplat, who burst onto the Hollywood scene in 2003 with his evocative score to Girl With The Pearl Earring. From this point on he contributed the soundtracks to a rich collection of highly successful movies such as Syriana, Golden Compass, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, Twilight Saga: New Moon, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows (Part 1&2) and The King’s Speech as well as Monuments Men.

      The LEGO Movie - Coloured Vinyl Edition

      The LEGO Movie is a 2014 American-Australian-Danish computer animated adventure comedy film starring the voices of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, and Morgan Freeman.

      Based on the LEGO line of construction toys, the film tells the story of Emmet (Pratt), an ordinary LEGO minifigure prophesied to save the universe from the tyrannical Lord Business (Ferrell). Released theatrically on February 7, 2014, the movie was a critical and commercial success, with many critics highlighting its visual style, humour, voice acting, and heartwarming message.

      The film's Original Score was composed by Mark Mothersbaugh, who had previously worked with producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller on Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street. The LEGO Movie soundtrack contains the score as the majority of its tracks.

      Also included is the theme song "Everything Is Awesome!!!" by Tegan and Sara featuring The Lonely Island, which has been critically praised and has undergone some close analysis. International Business Times describes the song as a parody of fascism, saying that the song "seems little more than an infectiously catchy parody of watered-down radio pop, right down to the faux-dubstep breakdown. There's a lot more happening under the surface, however." In an interview with Fox News, composer and songwriter Mark Mothersbaugh says the song "was supposed to be like mind control early in the film. It's totally irritating, this kind of mindless mantra to get people up and working."

      Slow Grind Fever Vol. 3

        Yet More Adventures In The Sleazy World Of Popcorn Noir...

        “Being a part time DJ whose fave musical period is the decade between 1953 and 1963 one can dig forever in a bottomless pit of great danceable uptempo tunes. Even after years and years of bringing new and exciting tunes to light there still are new finds every day who fill the dancefloors around the world for fans young and old. We're talking rhythm & blues and the phase in the early 60s when it morphed into soul (now called new nreed), as well as the genre that nowadays is labeled Popcorn - a mid-tempo style with a high groove-factor that was created in Belgium (of all places).

        The 'Slow Grind Fever' series was created after stumbling over a clubnight in Australia via the internet: Melbourne's only slow dance party, where they play the slowest, spookiest, sweetest records they can find, and folks dance real slow in a haze of smoke and dim red light.

        Well, what a concept! The Soundcloud-mixes the three DJs posted pretty quickly convinced the Stag-O-Lee chief that this is very exciting and after a few mails with the guys who run the Melbourne night the 'Slow Grind Fever 'series was born.
