Santa Monica, CA (August 4, 2008)--Imperativa Records has launched with the release of two collections of music originally featured in film and television. Emmy Award-winning composer and producer Yoav Goren, who is also a co-founder of Immediate Music, leads Imperativa Records.
Goren also announced the U.S. release of Imperativa Records' first two original CDs, Trailerhead from artist Immediate, and Epicon from artist Globus. Goren said, "Imperativa Records is a high quality label dedicated to providing music lovers of all kinds the best of contemporary, orchestral and choral music for the 21st Century. We felt the time was right to release this exciting, emotionally powerful music to a wider audience, and we expect to be delivering several upcoming new releases during the course of the next few years."
Trailerhead comprises 15 "trailer music" tracks, mixing orchestra with electronics and various grooves along with sweeping choral melodies, that have been previously featured in trailers for motion pictures such as Spiderman 2, I, Robot, The Fantastic Four and The Da Vinci Code. It also features "Onward to Freedom," featured in NBC's Torino Olympics coverage, which won Emmy Awards for composers Goren and his Immediate Music co-founder Jeffrey Fayman.
Epicon, recorded by the band Globus (of which Goren is a member), features rock, pop, classical and world music songs originally showcased on movie screens worldwide, but now with added lyrics and fused with orchestra and choir. During its limited UK-only test launch, Epicon sold over 10,000 CD copies. Globus' filmed live concert, held at the Wembley Center in London, has been seen across UK television, and the band's three MTV-style music videos have enjoyed widespread UK TV popularity.
Trailerhead is available for download through iTunes and on CD from Imperativa Records, and the CD will enjoy wider retail distribution from August 26.
