Music From the Movies reports that VarÃ¨se Sarabande will release the original score for Elektra on January 11, 2005. The Jennifer Garner-starrer, directed by Rob Bowman, will be released in theaters on January 14.
The music is composed by Christophe Beck, whose approach to the score was to experiment with unusual sounds and textures. In a press release, Beck says that he wanted to “create textures and music beds and edit and manipulate them to create both strange and familiar musical elements.” To achieve this, he prerecorded orchestral tracks that were edited and manipulated to create abstract sounds. These will be joined by full orchestra recorded at Fox this week. The score is being described as a “percussion-influenced mix of sound design and pure orchestration, with traditional and innovative layers.”
Stay tuned for more on the score.
