Haunting!

AlexVLM

I decided to check this album, out of mere curiosity, you know just to give it a try. As a life-long soundtracks collector I´m always on the lookout for new composers and different things. Man! I was blown away by the haunting melodies and heart-pounding rhythms in this score! I had never heard of Benjamin Wallfisch before, but then again I had ever heard of James Horner when Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan hit the movie theaters back in 1982. Or I barely remembered a composer named John Williams when Jaws was released in movie theaters when I was a kid. Was he the same Johnny Williams who wrote the main theme for Lost in Space?! Wow! Or some Italian guy named Bill Conti, who composed the music for the film of a boxer named Rocky. So, going back to Mr. Wallfisch, I hope to hear more from this composer. I don´t know much about the film “Pressure”, but his music certainly left a deep and haunting impression. Highly recommended.

Real gem

I put it on my want list and overtime I listened it and it was worth keeping there, then finally buying.
I am new to Ben Wallfisch but was instantly struck with the feel and direction of his composing. I like to write like this. Dark, Mysterious, Lucious, Evolving, Intense and some how Fresh. I really like it, and well worth $10. Hope to hear more Ben! Thanks for the entertainment & inspiration!

About Benjamin Wallfisch

Benjamin Wallfisch is a British composer, keyboardist, conductor, and orchestrator known primarily for film and television music. His diverse résumé includes such films as the period drama Hidden Figures, Blade Runner 2049, and Stephen King's It, the first two of which he scored with Hans Zimmer.

Born in London, England in 1979 to professional classical musicians (violinist Elizabeth Wallfisch and cellist Raphael Wallfisch), he began playing piano at the age of five and composing at six. Wallfisch went on to study composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the University of Manchester, and, as a postgraduate, the Royal Academy of Music. Subsequent work involved the BBC, a commissioned ballet, the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, and the English Chamber Orchestra, just to name a few affiliations.

Wallfisch made his debut as main composer on a feature film in 2005 with Lars von Trier's Dear Wendy. Over the next ten years, he worked on a variety of cinema and TV projects, among them The Escapist (2008), Hammer of the Gods (2013), and the Steven Spielberg-produced documentary short Auschwitz (2015). In the meantime, he also worked as conductor and orchestrator on soundtrack recordings such as V for Vendetta (2005), Atonement (2007), and Jane Eyre starring Mia Wasikowska (2011). During that period, he composed additional music for the likes of 12 Years a Slave (2013) and The Little Prince (2015).

Becoming more in demand as a composer, his 2016 scores included Gore Verbinski's A Cure for Wellness, the sports documentary Bobby, the horror films Lights Out and Within, and Best Picture Oscar nominee Hidden Figures. The latter earned a Golden Globe nomination in the category of Best Original Score for the team of Wallfisch, Zimmer, and Pharrell Williams. The year 2017 saw the release of films and accompanying score recordings for Wallfisch's Bitter Harvest (Varèse Sarabande), Annabelle: Creation (Silva Screen), It (WaterTower Music), and Blade Runner 2049 (Epic). ~ Marcy Donelson
