Milan Records presents: Brimstone. The original soundtrack to Brimstone was composed by Tom Holkenborg, also known as Junkie XL (Deadpool, Mad Max: Fury Road). Inspired by Bach’s organ masterpiece “Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor”
Brimstone is a Western thriller directed by Martin Koolhoven and starring Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, and Kit Harington. The film follows a young woman (Fanning) accused of a crime she did not commit. Her situation turns into a desperate fight for survival as a fiery reverend (Pearce) makes it his mission to bring her to “justice”. Momentum Pictures released Brimstone theatrically on March 10th, 2017.
The original soundtrack to Brimstone was composed by Tom Holkenborg, also known as Junkie XL (Deadpool, Mad Max: Fury Road). Inspired by Bach’s organ masterpiece “Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor”, Holkenborg has crafted a classic score heavy with the rich, full sounds of a massive orchestra.
The score to Brimstone is now getting a vinyl release. Pressed on 180 gram black vinyl and featuring a selection of key tracks curated by Tom Holkenborg, Brimstone also features new artwork by graphic designer Midnight Marauder. A download card featuring the entire digital album is also included with each unit.
Directed and written by Martin Koolhoven, starring Dakota Fanning, Kit Harington and Guy Pearce, Brimstone is a dramatic epic of survival and a tale of powerful womanhood and resistance against the unforgiving cruelty of a hell on earth. Liz (Dakota Fanning) is a mute young woman who lives together with her husband and two children. She is a midwife who communicates through sign language. When the new reverend (Guy Pearce) climbs the pulpit in their church, Liz freezes. She immediately knows she and her family are in grave danger.
Acclaimed composer Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL) has crafted a beautiful and dramatic orchestral score inspired by Bach‘s Passacaglia And Fugue in C Minor.
“Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor has always been my favorite organ piece by Bach. I have been looking for an opportunity to write music for a film inspired by this beautiful work, which I found in collaborating with Martin Koolhoven. He was immediately attracted to the idea and my resulting composition became a theme for the reverend, in which you can hear the influence of this brilliant Bach piece. His music will continue inspiring myself and many other composers for hears to come! Enjoy!”
The soundtrack to Brimstone is receiving the vinyl treatment with original artwork by Midnight Marauder.
