Filmtrax will release a soundtrack album for the sci-fi thriller Anon. The album features the film’s original music composed by Christophe Beck (Ant-Man, Frozen, Edge of Tomorrow, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Hangover, The Muppets). The soundtrack will be released digitally tomorrow, May 18 and will be available to download on Amazon, where you can also check out audio samples. Anon is written and directed by Andrew Niccol and stars Clive Owen, Amanda Seyfried, Colm Feore and Sony Walger. The movie is set in a future where technology has rendered privacy obsolete and follows a detective who investigates a serial assassin who has been deleted from all visual records. The thriller was released earlier this month in the U.S. and most other markets on Netflix and in the UK in select theaters and on Sky.
Joe Beck has had a long career, though he remains an artist deserving of wider recognition. These 2005 sessions are a relaxing affair that will delight fans of Brazilian jazz. Joined by bassist Ira Coleman and drummer Thierry Arpino (who is known for his work with violinist Jean-Luc Ponty), Beck's fluid electric guitar (while sometimes overdubbing an acoustic rhythm line) makes the most of each selection, playing a heavy dose of popular tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim and his own tasty originals. Highlights among the Jobim compositions include the bittersweet "O Grande Amor" and the easygoing "Felicidade." Harmonica player Gregoire Maret is added for the leader's gentle bossa nova "And Here's to You" and Jobim's bittersweet "Falando De Amor."
