Mythological heroes, historic role-playing computer games and a Danish western - it's been another eclectic few months in the studio!

Hercules

In mid-May the Philharmonia recorded the music for the upcoming Brett Ratner movie Hercules. Based on the Radical Comics graphic novel and starring Dwayne Johnson (aka. The Rock), John Hurt and Irina Shayk (aka. Mrs Cristiano Ronaldo), Hercules promises to be one of this summer’s biggest blockbusters. Hercules hits UK screens on 25 July complete with Fernando Velázquez’s score recorded at London’s Air Studios.

Fable Legends

Fable Legends, the latest in the Fable franchise, is an upcoming cooperative role-playing game for XboxOne currently in development. Composer Russell Shaw, head of music and sound at Lionhead Studios whose music for the series has previously been nominated for a BAFTA, has returned for this new release, recording the music with us back in May. Whilst a release date is yet to be announced, gamers got a special preview at the latest E3 Expo and expectations are high for the first next-gen title of the series.

The Salvation

Debuting at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and described by Total Film as a ‘near perfect blend of old school genre sensibilities and modern filmmaking’, Kristian Levring's The Salvation is certainly acquiring a lot of praise. The Danish/South African produced neo-Western stars Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green and Jonathan Pryce, and is due for release in the UK at the end of the year. In the meantime however, you can listen to Kasper Winding’s score, recorded with us back in March, which is available now via iTunes.
