film scores


Just when I thought John Carpenter’s new music video was going to be coolest video of the week, No Tomorrow: A Turbo Kid Tale popped up.

The 8-minute short film is a prequel to 2015’s Turbo Kid, one of the most fun movies in recent memory. It shows the origin of fan-favorite character Apple (played by Laurence Leboeuf) before the events of the film.

No Tomorrow also serves as a music video for the song of the same name by Le Matos, the synth group who composed the film’s score, featuring Pawws. It’s written and directed by RKSS, the collaborative behind Turbo Kid.

Hopefully this is not the last we see of the Turbo Kid universe, as its lovably characters are ripe for further adventures.

Tauriel also yearns to understand more of the outside world, for there is also softness and kindness outside the seclusion of Mirkwood­­­ ̶ and its light can shine in the least-suspected places. Philippa Boyens’ text “The White Light of Forever” acknowledges this openness in Tauriel’s character by combining Khuzdul and Sindarin lyrics with probing harmonic progressions: “Hae ephadron / theri thaur / am na dhû / ias fir i ambar / A trehil i ‘alad 'lân uir tri 'wilith” (“I go walking / Beyond the Forest / Where the world falls away / and the white light / Of forever fills the air”).

Hidden Track // Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross

Often confused with Consummation, this is actually the track that plays during the murder scene in Gone Girl and is a hidden bonus track on the album. 


This is the first of two new videos today. Watch this one first.

Off the top of your head, could you sing the theme from Star Wars? How about James Bond? Or Harry Potter? But here’s the kicker: can you sing any theme from a Marvel film? Despite 13 films and 10 billion dollars at the box office, the Marvel Cinematic Universe lacks a distinctive musical identity or approach. So let’s try to answer the question: what is missing from Marvel music?
