NDI Commemorates International Day of Roma with Film from Academy Award Winner Hans Zimmer.
The 10 million Roma living in Europe make up the fastest growing ethnic group on the continent and face disproportionate challenges from poverty to violence. Today NDI celebrated the culture and achievements – and highlighted the plight – of these unique European people, commonly called “gypsies,” in honor of the 40th anniversary of International Roma Day.
In addition, NDI used the occasion to debut a short public awareness film, “Who Are the Roma?” with original music by Academy Award winning composer Hans Zimmer.
La-La Land Records and Dark Delicacies invite you to meet and get your CDs autographed by the composers of new/recent La-La Land releases. There will be Christopher Lennertz & Ramin Djawadi (Medal Of Honnor Box Set), Cliff Martinez (Solaris), Jeremy Zuckerman & Benjamin Wynn (DC Showcase). Also sheduled to attend are Ryan Shore, Mark Isham, Stu Phillips and Scott Glascow.
Be there on April 16th at 2PM

Heitor Pereira to score THE SMURFS
Heitor Pereira has been hired to score the upcoming film adaptation of The Smurfs. The film marks Sony Pictures Animation’s first live-action/animated hybrid film and stars Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria and Sofia Vergara in the primary live-action roles.
Atli Örvarsson Atli Örvarsson is on the rise and with each new score his music is becoming more defined as a prominant voice in the industry. Atli has worked on a number of Hans Zimmer's scores from Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End, Angels & Demons and a few more. He wrote additional music for the hugely popular Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and he played the accordion on Hans' score to Sherlock Holmes as well. Some of his solo works include The Last Confederate, The Fourth Kind, Babylon A.D., Vantage Point, Season Of The Witch and now his music can be heard in the new Kevin MacDonald film The Eagle. I asked Atli a few questions about his background and methods.
For every pre-purchase and download of the album between now and March 8th, $1.00 will be donated to the organization Service Nation,
a campaign to increase service opportunities and elevate service as a core ideal and problem-solving strategy in our society.
