Rahman Altın’s soundtrack out in US
ISTANBULThe original motion picture soundtrack for the Turkish drama, “The Butterfly’s Dream” has been attracting interest in the United States since it came out on sale more than a month ago.
Composed, arranged and produced by celebrated Turkish feature film, TV, and video game composer Rahman Altın, the film’s soundtrack immediately went No. 1 on Turkey’s music charts following its release and has since won the World Soundtrack Academy’s “Public Choice Award” for 2013. Performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Miriam Nemcova, the solo piano parts are played by the composer himself.
Altın is a dynamic presence in the world of music creation, successfully scoring for film, TV and video games. Along with his recent scoring of “The Butterfly’s Dream,” he has worked on numerous campaigns, trailers and projects, including “Iron-Man 3,” “The Amazing Spiderman,” “The Green Lantern,” “Monsters vs. Aliens” and the miniseries “The Pacific.” Additionally, the Lucas Film Company licensed his music for the Star Wars BluRay campaign, and Rahman has also won several best film music awards for his score for the feature film “Waiting for Heaven.”
Living in both Los Angeles and Istanbul, Altın is the first and only musician from Turkey to participate in the Film Scoring Workshop sponsored by ASCAP and Fox.
Director Yılmaz Erdoğan’s “The Butterfly’s Dream” was released in February 2013, and was selected to represent Turkey as its entry for best foreign language film in the 2014 Academy Awards and Golden Globe Awards.
