Description

Alex Heffes - The Rite

From Alex Heffes, the composer of The Last King Of Scotland, Touching The Void and State Of Play comes an uneasy and exquisite soundtrack to Mikael Håfström’s supernatural thriller starring Anthony Hopkins.

Alex Heffes is one of the UK’s leading film composers. Nominated by BAFTA, Ivor Novello, European Film Academy and ASCAP awards, Alex worked with steel bands, symphony orchestras and artists ranging from Elton John to members of Blur.

Alex Heffes is a versatile composer not confined by musical boundaries. His work is described by Film Music as “simply sublime” while CD Times depicts his musical style as “fusing old-school grandiose film-scoring with the delicate subtlety of more leftfield composers”.

Mikael Håfström director of The Rite comments: “There is much more here than just supporting moments of horror or suspense, so I hope this album shows the range of music Alex composed for The Rite: from the unsettling to the beautiful, and never too far apart. I think that is essential to Alex’s work”.

Reviews

“…the music is beautiful …The performances are stellar”
- Dread Central

“…a smart homage to the slow burn old school, combined with the thrilling excitement of the new.”
- The Examiner

"It's subtle, yet leaves an unmistakable impression of quality"
- Soundtrack Geek

“For The Rite, Heffes has prepared a score that treats its subject delicately and beautifully... The effect is one of glorious poignancy and restraint, and it serves to elevate the film from generic thriller to thought-provoking supernatural drama.”
- TrackSounds

“The Rite is another strong effort by Heffes… One of the first good scores of 2011.”
- CineMusic

“This album is a great example of what a soundtrack for a supernatural horror film that deals with philosophical themes should sound like.”
- G-Pop

“…I’m just praying that the Black Eyed Peas do a remix of Heffes’ “Rosaria Coughs Up the Nails” for next year’s Super Bowl. Rock on.”
- Fangoria

“Alex Heffes does not re-invent the wheel with The Rite. However, he takes it three steps up and makes it a satisfying and memorable one... Very much recommended”
****- Sounds of the Cinema
