Grace, Jeff – “Trigger Man/The Roost” – [MovieScore Media]

Jeff Grace is a film composer of independent films, often horror. He has been nominated for numerous awards from different organizations within the film music world. The two soundtracks on this CD, “Trigger Man” and “The Roost”, both films by the independent film maker Ti West, are rich, sonorous compositions full of mood and intensity. “Trigger Man” has Dave Eggar on 18th century stunt cello and Dave Schommer on percussion creating a wide range of sonic emotion to compliment the film action and tension. “The Roost” is composed for a string quartet and organ, setting up the thrills for the zombie terror that takes over this film. But do not think these are just background music. These two pieces stand on their own, creating an early 21st century example of contemporary classical music. Challenging but accessible, dramatic but not overwrought, these string and percussion pieces offer a variety of sounds and timbres which work as well on screen as they would in a concert hall. Soundtrack music may be the classical music of this century.
