ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK TO 'X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST'
Sony Music is proud to announce the release of the soundtrack of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', featuring original movie music composed by BAFTA Award winner John Ottman.
The composer John Ottman is no stranger to this epic movie series and to the superhero genre. As both composer and editor he is the musical right-hand man of Bryan Singer, with whom he collaborated on The Usual Suspects, Jack the Giant Slayer and Valkyrie, and for whom he wrote the soundtrack of X2, the second in the X-Men series. In Ottman’s own words: "It’s great to be back home with my favourite characters after being away from them since X2. With the story being focused on a young and broken Charles Xavier, I was given a musical opportunity to underscore his journey of rekindling the hope he’d lost. Charles Xavier finally gets his own theme."
John Ottman graduated from the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California. One of his early assignments was to provide original music for the computer game I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream. In 1996 he won a BAFTA award for editing The Usual Suspects, and was later nominated for an Emmy Award for his score to the ABC series Fantasy Island. Ottman has written the music for such iconic films as Superman Returns, Fantastic Four and its sequel, and Valkyrie. His range of composition takes in the dark comedy of The Cable Guy, the nightmares of Gothika and Orphan, the animated notes of Astro Boy and Non-Stop.
The release by Sony Music of his latest masterpiece, the soundtrack of X-Men: Days of Future Past, is an event to look forward to for all fans of high-calibre movie music and the many adherents of the X-Men series.
