UNIVERSAL MUSIC U.K. "SOUNDTRACKS," AND SCORES
6/9/16

Universal Music U.K.'s  sync, brand partnership and TV production arm Globe has partnered with the famous Abbey Road Studios to launch Globe Soundtrack & Score. The division is led by Globe President Mark Robinson, who described it as a "label services company for film-makers."

Globe Soundtrack & Score will work with producers, directors, music supervisors and composers to source and create music for a variety of projects, working with music that's signed to UMG as well as other labels. It will contribute at the earliest stages of a soundtrack, in terms of funding as well as content and composition. 

Said Robinson: “Globe Soundtrack & Score is like a label services company for film-makers. If you're producing a film, or a TV show, you believe in the importance of music, want to work with some of the best specialists in the industry and utilise some of the finest facilities in the world, that's what Globe Soundtrack & Score exists for.

“At the moment we see a lot of musical visions being compromised because of budget, and that’s not in anyone’s interest. There is a passion for scores and for soundtracks and people are listening to them on streaming services at an increasing rate. We have re-thought the model and are finding original and exciting ways to engage with film-makers and film music fans alike."

The first project is On Chesil Beach, an adaptation of Ian McEwan’s 2007 novel. The film, directed by Dominic Cooke, is being produced by Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley of Number 9 Films, the driving force behind the acclaimed, Oscar-nominated Carol and Youth.

Universal Music has already enjoyed considerable success with film and TV music – most recently with the Oscar-winning Ennio Morricone soundtrack for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. Other big-selling soundtracks for the company have included Spectre, Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy and Fifty Shades of Grey. Its latest completed project is for John Carney’s Sing Street.
