Breaking Glass Pictures has released their latest thriller RIDDLE ROOM, that features an original score by Åström, on iTunes, VOD, and DVD. Directed by Bryan Binder, Riddle Room stars Erika Hoveland, Tiren Jhames, Marisa Ruby, Daniel Usaj, Peter Carey, and Ava Manson.
Åström was invited to China by professor Liu Hou of the Shanghai Conservatory of Music to do a guest class on his work as a film composer in Los Angeles. He played scenes from his recent feature films and talked about his approach and methods for scoring to picture. He also discussed the realities of working under tight deadlines in Hollywood. The lecture was followed by a Q&A where Åström gave feedback on some of the Chinese students’ works.
Åström was recently commissioned to compose the the score for the upcoming Irish feature film “Death Waits”, directed by Redmond Fitzpatrick. The director describes the film as an atmospheric psychological thriller, a cross between ‘The Shining’ by Kubrick and ‘Repulsion’ by Polanski. This film features an Irish, Polish and American cast and stars Alicja Ayres and Tristan Heanue. It will be released in the international arena in 2016.
