Sony Classical proudly announces the release of ADRIFT (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) with original music by German composer, songwriter, pianist, experimental musician and Oscar® nominee, Volker Bertelmann aka Hauschka, available now. STXfilms and Lakeshore Entertainment open ADRIFT now in U.S. theaters.
Hauschka says about the soundtrack: "Collaborating with Balthasar Kormákur was a wonderful experience and he gave me a lot of freedom to find the right sound for the film. Adrift tells a story about love and the fragility of human existence, so I wanted to create some sort of instrumental tension to reflect both the darkness and peril, as well as the lightness and love in this film. We ended up recording a full string orchestra at British Grove in London and added piano and experimental electronics to create a diverse and dynamic score. I'm very happy with the result and I feel fortunate to have been part of this powerful film."
Starring Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin and directed by Baltasar Kormákur, ADRIFT is based on the inspiring true story of two free spirits whose chance encounter leads them first to love, and then to the adventure of a lifetime.
As the two sailors set out on a journey across the ocean, Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) couldn’t anticipate they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. In the aftermath of the storm, Tami awakens to find Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins. With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved. ADRIFT is the unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love.
Written by Aaron Kandell & Jordan Kandell and David Branson Smith, and based on the book by Tami Oldham Ashcraft with Susea McGearhart. Produced by Baltasar Kormákur, Aaron Kandell, Jordan Kandell, and Shailene Woodley. An RVK Studios Production presented by STXfilms, Lakeshore Entertainment, Huayi Brothers Pictures and Ingenious.
