MSM comes home to 'Roost'

MovieScore Media presents

The Roost
Original Motion Picture Score
Also featuring music from Joshua

Music composed by Jeff Grace

Exploring even darker territories, composer Jeff Grace moves from Middle-Earth and Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings trilogy to the world of zombies and vampires in the acclaimed cult horror film The Roost, directed by Ti West. Grace, who worked as an assistant for Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore on numerous scores including all three Lord of the Rings soundtracks, is now pursuing a film composition career in his own right. His refreshingly modern horror score for The Roost, written for a string quartet using many experimental avant garde techniques, is a very impressive work that ranks among the best of scores written in the low budget horror

Jeff Grace is a classically trained composer who, besides film scores, has among other things was selected for American Opera Projects' 2005-2006 Composers and The Voice Series. He has also worked with composer Robert Ruggieri on his ballet scores and as an orchestrator for trumpeter Roy Hargrove.

The Roost: Original Motion Picture Score will be available exclusively from iTunes on July 25, 2006, with wider digital distribution to follow.
