One of the several film music related intitiatives Film Fest Gent undertakes or supports is the annual recording and release of a compilation album full of soundtracks from one particular composer.
Film Fest Gent is eager to put film composers in the spotlights during the World Soundtrack Awards, but we also want to spread their music for film in other ways. With that in mind, we annually organise the crowdfunding and production of a unique compilation album of one particular film composer. Over the years, we have recorded soundtracks by Gabriel Yared, Angelo Badalamenti, Alan Silvestri, Craig Armstrong, Shigeru Umebayashi, Mychael Danna, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Terence Blanchard.
In 2018, our guest of honor Carter Burwell's film scores were bundled onto a unique compilation for the first time. You can enjoy the film scores he has composed for 'Fargo', 'In Bruges', 'Twilight' and 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri', to name but a few. The live recording also includes exclusive and unreleased tracks from 'The Spanish Prisoner' and 'Olive Kitteridge'.
