When I first arrived in New York City, I was overwhelmed by its energy, so much so that

on my first night, standing in Times Square, I experienced my first-ever panic attack. In

“Most Beautiful Island,” I wanted to reflect the harshness of the city that I first perceived

in which there was never a moment of silence. The noise was present day and night,

but somehow, over time, I learned to distinguish sounds within those noises. I began to

hear music, conversations, bells, children’s laughter… each of these phenomena

producing its own different tone and intensity, and striking me differently, depending

upon my emotional state. I remember being unsure sometimes as to what was real and

what was a product of my own mind. This aural wave and the ambiguity of it is precisely

what I wanted the film to re-create and the audience to experience. Jeffery Alan Jones

was able to translate my verbal description of these sensations into a magnificent sound

design and subtle score filled with nuances that blend and take turns, always mindful of

and enhancing the main’s character’s journey throughout the film.

I was thrilled to work together with Ana on her marvelous film, “Most Beautiful Island.” A

gripping story of choices and chance set in New York City. I love the sounds of the city,

so vast and and so unique from one street to the next. I set out to compose a rich

soundscape of both music and sound that not only underlined the subtext of the

narrative but told a story beneath the story. The music is carefully woven into the

sounds of the city in a manner in which you cannot distinguish the music from the sound

design. The score is intended to be felt, not heard.

JOSE FALLOT

Enfant de la balle et de la basse, débarqué en 1955 dans les feuilles de choux à grandes oreilles au son tellement craquant des planches.

A l’orée des années soixante-dix, c’est l’expérience d’un premier groupe dédié aux Beatles. Puis voient le jour de discrètes et courageuses, voire téméraires compositions personnelles, mais à la basse.

Curieux d’approfondir son goût pour les quelques licks façon walkin’bass de Paul Mc Cartney,il s’intéresse au jazz et s’inscrit au cours de l’organiste Yvon Gardette et du guitariste Pierre Urban. José tourne avec Yvon en été 1975 en Suisse, Allemagne, Belgique et France. L’armée française le conscrit alors dans l’orchestre de bal et la fanfare du régiment, ce qui est plus excitant que le PM ou la balayette.

Cours d’harmonie sur la basse avec Sylvain Pereisse puis, à l’issue d’un concert de Tania Maria avec

MarcBertaux à la basse, il se consacre au jazz avec, entre autres, David Pouradier-Duteil. Fallot se voit, ensuite en 1ère partie du duo, « Boell & Roubach », puis 1ère expérience de Big Band avec Jean Luc Vignaud.

Cours d’arrangement d’Yvan Jullien, puis rejoint le Big Band d’élèves de Laurent Cugny au CIM et s’intéresse en profondeur, avec Georges Demeilliez, au solfège et à l’Histoire de la Musique. Deux « master class », pour approfondir la main droite et le travail des gammes, avec 2 virtuoses : Dominique Di Piazza et Jeff Andrews.

It is an incredible honor to compose the score of “Operation Red Sea.” Throughout the process, I was able to work very closely with Director Dante Lam. Combined with his fresh perspectives and the state-of-the-art visuals, I was able to draw forth my best creative juices to enhance the cinematic experience. The beginning of my composing thought sequences always began with how the team of 8 special forces members worked together, putting their own egos aside to accomplish the same goal. While both action and plot were stunning, this film was more about the being intrinsically human and the fulfilment of one’s calling to me. Easy to say, I wholeheartedly loved every minute of working with Director Lam. See you guys in the cinemas and enjoy the album!

Operation Red Sea (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) on YouTube

Operation Red Sea (Chinese: 红海行动, film also go by the name of “Desert Storm”) is an upcoming Chinese-Hong Kong action film directed by Dante Lam and starring Zhang Yi, Du Jiang, Huang Jingyu, Hai Qing and Prince Mak. The film is loosely based on the evacuation of the 225 foreign nationals and almost 600 Chinese citizens from Yemen’s southern port of Aden during the 2015 Yemeni Civil War in late March. The film will continue in similar style to that of Operation Mekong and it is expect to be release in fourth quarter of 2017. This film will serve as the highlight film presented to audience as a gift for the 90th Anniversary of the Founding of the Chinese People Liberation Army, as well as the party’s “19th National congress”. This film is said to be the “China’s First Modern Naval Film”

Box Office: “Operation Red Sea” Is Projected To Reach $625 Million 

Action thriller Operation Red Sea has garnered an accumulated 2.1 billion yuan at the box office so far, having opened less than two weeks ago. Industry professionals believe that the box office would eventually get to 4 billion yuan ($625 million). Opening on Chinese New Year’s day, and having little time for its marketing efforts, Operation Red Sea’s success was not foreseeable at first. However, positive reviews quickly poured in, and in turn, brought ticket sales. The incredible box office numbers of the film also signify that mainstream and modern military films have much potential to succeed.

Épilogue :

Une spectatrice ose demander Summertime. Comme dans tout bon conte de fées, son vœu est exaucé !

Pour le plaisir de tous, sous les projecteurs ou à la lueur des bougies, on finit ces deux heures de bonheur avec la fée-organiste qui s’amuse à citer quelques mesures de L’homme à l’harmonica, le magicien-batteur qui manie de mains de maître balais, mailloches et baguettes magiques et le prince charmant-saxophoniste ayant eu l’élégance de troquer le heaume pour la casquette et lacé de rouge ses souliers vernis noirs pour être assorti au code couleurs de l’Amphijazz qui lui a confié, cette semaine, les clefs de son royaume.

 

Epilogue:

A spectator dares to ask Summertime. As in any good fairy tale, his wish is fulfilled!

For the pleasure of all, under the spotlight or the glow of the candles, one finishes these two hours of happiness with the fairy-organist who amuses himself to cite some measurements of the man with the harmonica, the magician-drummer who wields hands of master brooms, mallets and Magic Wands and the charming prince-saxophonist who had the elegance of swapping the helmet for the cap and laced with red his black varnished shoes to match the colour Code of the Amphijazz which entrusted him this week with the keys of his kingdom.

CENTAUR (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) on YouTube

Aktan Arym Kubat’s beautiful film “Centaur“ provided me with the opportunity to write my most heartfelt and personal score to date. When I first saw the film, I was daunted because it was temptracked exclusively with my music from Aktan’s “The Light Thief“. This was the first time that I was confronted with my own music in a temp track, and it worked frighteningly well, too. So what do you do if you don’t want to repeat yourself? Thankfully I was told that the temp music really was just a placeholder and that I should do whatever I felt was right and not pay too much attention to the existing music. After I came up with a theme, everything went smoothly and we hardly changed anything at all. Of course one can never completely escape the influence of a first impression and my score remains a cousin to “The Light Thief“, but a more mystical and most certainly a more melancholy one. I’m very happy to have been given the opportunity to contribute something emotional to Aktan’s wonderful film and hope that many people will see it.

This soundtrack presentation features the complete score as well as my demo theme and a suite of alternate takes and arrangements.

 The Looming Storm (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

A security guard plays de tective with dire results in Dong Yue’s atmospheric psychological film noir.

The Looming Storm, the first feature by cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Dong Yue, conveys above all a sense of dashed hopes. Men in dark-gray mackintoshes under an endless downpour typify this Chinese film noir, whose glum atmosphere echoes a disintegrating social situation. The poorest sectors of society falter as the country modernizes and shrugs off its old and unproductive elements. China’s competition entry in this year’s Tokyo Film Festival is a think piece, thinly disguised as a murder mystery. Though far too long at nearly two hours, its stylish look lends it a certain fascination while the story heralds a new filmmaker ready to tackle sensitive issues.

Most of the action is set in 1997, a crucial year for China that saw the death of leader Deng Xiaoping and the Handover of Hong Kong, which returned it to Chinese sovereignty. It was also the year that Deng’s successor Jiang Zemin began divesting the country of its debt-ridden state-owned enterprises. In one of these doomed dinosaurs, a sprawling old factory in the middle of nowhere, Yu Guowei (Duan Yihong) runs a modest security department with his doltish assistant Xiao Liu (Zheng Wei). His success at catching a handful of thieving employees earns him the Model Worker of the Year award and a chance to prattle optimism to a captive audience of factory hands.

But the film actually begins in 2008, a year of natural disasters in China, when Guowei is released from prison. So this is not a whodunnit or even a howdunnit, but a story that slowly reveals why its self-important hero spent 10 years behind bars. The very first scene leaves no doubt that the director intends for everything to be read on a broader scale: Asked to spell his name for prison records, Guowei replies it is “yu” for unnecessary remnants, “guo” for nation and “wei” for “glorious.” He is indeed one of the expendable leftovers of a glorious nation, a cast-off like millions of others. Depicting this is an ambitious agenda for a first feature and, like his hero, Duan’s ambitions tend to exceed what he can actually achieve.

We meet Guowei, as genre conventions demand, at the scene of a woman’s gruesome murder. It is the fourth killing with the same MO and old Chief Zhang (a well-traveled and exhausted Du Yuan) surmises it’s the same murderer. Guowei has been summoned to see if anyone missed work at the factory. This opens a hornet’s nest of aspirations on Guowei’s part to leave his job in factory security for a police appointment. But he finds few clues when he drags his reluctant sidekick Xiao Liu to the crime scene, nor does a hooker he talks to at the Workers Stadium help him ID a likely suspect. Eventually, Guowei believes he is on the trail of the murderer and chases a hooded figure up and down ladders at the factory and then through a railroad yard. He is so caught up in playing detective that he barely notices how Xiao Liu has taken a nasty fall.

Guowei meets a pretty prostitute, Yanzi (Jiang Yiyun), who develops some affection for him after he installs her in a beauty parlor in the Hong Kong section of town (she asks him poignantly whether he thinks it will one day be possible to travel freely to HK). However, she doesn’t turn this murder-obsessed asexual into a romantic. On the contrary, Guowei embarks on a program of spying on her which ends badly. In the end, he finds reality falling apart around him and the viewer realizes Guowei (and the director) are very unreliable narrators, a fact that puts most of the film into question. It’s an interesting twist, but perhaps too advanced for a first-time filmmaker. The final scenes have a hurried, unsettled quality that leaves the audience wondering what really happened.

With its overcast skies and industrial pipes sticking surreally out of the rural landscape, Cai Tao’s cinematography conveys a sweeping sense of space that is visually quite entrancing, even if it emphasizes brackish, rain-soaked grays that seriously dampen the quality of life. Even the colors are a metaphor, of course, that grow to feel over-used.

His music is a mixture of dream-pop, contemporary classical and electronics, through an original approach to the use of instruments like the piano as well as the string quartet and its voice of a magnificent tonality. His music entrains us in a fantasy universe, melancholy, but sometimes and full of emotions.

La petite communaute Syrienne Orthodoxe de Jerusalem peut a juste titre se vanter d’etre l’heritiere de l’Eglise des Apotres. Utilisant un dialecte arameen quasiment identique a celui que parlaient Jesus et ses disciples; ayant conserve, a travers deux millenaires d’epreuves, nombre d’elements judeo-chretiens, particulierement dans sa liturgie, cette eglise heroique nous renvoie l’image la plus fidele possible des premieres generations chretiennes.

The small Syrian Orthodox community of Jerusalem may rightly claim to be the heir of the first Church of the Apostles.

Using a dialect of Aramaic almost identical with the language spoken by Jesus and his disciples, and having kept, through two millenaria of trials, many Judaeo-Christian elements, particularly in liturgy, this heroic Church provides us the closest possible image of the first Christian generations.

Le Monastere Grec-Catholique de Saint Jean-du-Desert est a la fois l’un des plus beaux sites de Terre Sainte et un lieu oecumenique renomme.

A l’ecart de toutes les modes, il a entrepris depuis plusieurs annees un travail pionnier d’adaptation de la musique byzantine en francais. Son choeur monastique ne recherche pas tant la maitrise vocale que l’authenticite spirituelle.

The Grec Catholic Monastery of Saint John in the Desert is both a renowned ecumenical place and one of the most beautiful sites in the Holy Land.

Independently from any fashion, it has for several years pioneered in adapting Byzantine music to the French language. The goal of their monastic ensemble is less vocal virtuosity than spiritual authenticity.

Today a 120 member community dwells in this impressive monastic fortress, both an ecological and a spiriutal oasis in the desert, which has a leading part in the Coptic Church’s renewal.

One of its many achievements is the restoration of traditional Coptic singing, one of the mos ancient and original musical form in the world.

Le Monastere de l’Assomption a Bet Gemal est une communaute contemplative de soeurs dont le but est l’adoration incessante, avec la Vierge Mariem de la Tres Sainte Trinite et de la Presence du Christ dans son Eucharistie.

Les soeurs de ce Monastere, qui s’inspire de l’organisation des laures orientales, vivent dans le silence et la priere, loin de tout regard humain.

Leurs celebrations liturgiques, qui utilisent les langues locales, s’inspirent de la tradition Chretienne Orientale. Leur chant n’est rien d’autre qu’une expression de leur contemplation.

The Monastery of the Assumption in Bet Gemal is a contemplative community of sisters whose purpose is to adore unceasingly the Most Holy Triity and the Presence of Christ in his Eucharist, with the Virgin Mary.

Inspired by the organisation of the eastern Lavras, they live in silence and prayer, hidden from all human gaze.

Their liturgical celebrations follow the Eastern Christian tradition and are celebrated in the local languages. Their chant is but an expression of their contemplation.

La communaute Benedictine qui vit a l’Abbaye de “Hagia Maria Sion” plus connue sous le nom de “Dormition”, prolonge une tradition de priere en un endroit qui fut un haut-lieu spirituel tant pour les premieres generations judeo-chretiennes que pour les byzantins.

En profonde resonance avec le mystere auquel l’eglise est dediee, celui de la glorieuse Assomption de la Vierge Marie, les moines y temoignent de l’irruption de l’eternite dans le temps.

The Benedictine community living at Hagia Maria Zion Abbey, better known as the “Dormition”, is carrying forward a tradition of prayer in a site which was central both for the first Judeo-Christian generations and for the Byzantines.

In concert with the mystery to which the church is dedicated, the glorious Assumption of the Virgin Mary, the monks witness here the irruption of eternity into time.

  • A murder mystery set in Budapest 1936, just as Hungary was preparing to allign itself with Hitler. A young beautiful girl is found dead and noone wants to investigate – except Gordon a crimd reporter who has a gut feeling that things are not what they seem.
  • Set in the politically troubled autumn of 1936, this story follows Zsigmond Gordon, a world-weary reporter asking unwanted questions about the seemingly unimportant murder of a young prostitute found beaten to death and dumped in a courtyard. While supposedly covering the funeral of fascist-leaning, real-life Hungarian prime minister Gyula Gömbös, Gordon’s investigation leads him deep into the city’s dark underbelly – a shady world of pornographers, fixers, all-night “smokers”, boxing rings, seedy brothels, powerful crime syndicates and communist cells – all the way to the highest echelons of power, where one of Hungary’s most influential business figures plans to make a fortune through his political ties to Germany’s leadership – as long as he can somehow keep secret the fact that he is of Jewish heritage.
