Escape from Tomorrow Soundtrack Now Available On Line

Those who desperately would like to see the controversial "Escape from Tomorrow" movie (which, by the way, didn't won any prize at 2013 Sundance Film Festival) might be interested to know that the CD movie soundtrack has been released and is apparently available for purchase ($8.91) and download online . 

It's always interesting to hear the soundtrack of a movie as he tells more about the mood of it and i have to say that i was surprised, just as they said in the production notes, by the romantic mood of Abel Korzeniowski score. To be honest, considering the film storyline i was expecting something more depressing... If you go HERE you'll be able to listen 30 sec of each track.

You'll find also below the album notes and on the top a picture of the (provocative?) CD cover!

Album Notes:

A deeply impressionistic yet sweepingly romantic musical snapshot of the pulse and passion of the Magic Kingdom, this collection of unapologetically old-fashioned cues from Polish composer Abel Korzeniowski – best known for his Golden Globe nominated original scores for A Single Man (2009) and W.E. (2011) – harks back to the style of such Golden Era Hollywood composers as Hugo Friedhofer and Fred Steiner, as well as later keepers of the flame like Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams. Wringing buckets of melodramatic inflection from his energetic orchestrations in tracks like “Gates of Tomorrow” and “Magic Kingdom,” Korzeniowski plunges the audiences into a swirling vortex of irony, setting them up for the psychological disconnect to ensue – brilliantly captured in the unexpectedly dissonant and minimalistic electronic tracks “Lost in Caves” and “Mystery Man”.

Randy Moore's ESCAPE FROM TOMORROW is a postmodern fairy tale about an overactive imagination and the dark-side of "family" entertainment. In a world of fake castles and anthropomorphic rodents, an epic battle begins when an unemployed father's sanity is challenged by a chance encounter with two underage girls on holiday.
