Varèse Sarabande Records will release the Penny Dreadful – Original Television Series Soundtrack digitally and on CD August 19, 2014. The soundtrack features an original score composed by Abel Korzeniowski (W.E., A Single Man).

"I started looking for an expression of dark beauty, something that can be terrifying and mesmerizing at the same time–a poisonous infatuation," said Korzeniowski.

Film scores from the 2000s - Top 10 ‘Hidden Gems’ | Tracksounds

Film scores from the 2000s - Top 10 ‘Hidden Gems’
by Steven Sharratt

 

Following on from my article on Top 10 ‘Hidden Gems’ from the 1990s, here is the sequel, featuring unsung heroes from the years 2000 to 2009.

 

The ‘noughties’ was another great decade for film music. Classics that stand out include The Dark Knight, Gladiator, Inception, the Harry Potter franchise and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I bet anyone reading this will have at least one of these soundtracks in their collection already!

 

Therefore, this top 10 is designed to help you discover a small fraction of ‘hidden gems’ from the 2000s. These scores aren’t necessarily the best from that decade – but they’re still great scores that have often been overlooked. Hopefully it will help inspire you to discover some great new music.

Watch: If Cliff Martinez Scored Martin Scorsese's 'Raging Bull' It Might Look Something Like This

Watch: If Cliff Martinez Scored Martin Scorsese's 'Raging Bull' It Might Look Something Like This | Film Music News | Scoop.it
Even if you don't know his name, you know his scores. From his work for Nicolas Winding Refn ("Drive," "Only God Forgives"), Harmony Korine ("Spring Breakers"), Robert Redford ("The Company You Keep") and ten collaborations with Steven Soderbergh (including "The Knick," listen to a track here), Cliff Martinez has established a distinct voice with his pulsating, throbbing compositions. But one filmmaker he has yet to work with is Martin Scorsese. And seemingly just because, someone has decided to mashup Martinez's work with "Raging Bull."
