The Day Of The Falcon is music inspired by and in sync with the 1985 fantasy film Ladyhawke directed by Richard Donner. It is a favorite of mine and an interview on Soundtrack Alley that I gave in 2017 brought up the question how Ladyhawke would have turned out with a purely orchestral score, perhaps from the hands of Jerry Goldsmith. At the beginning of 2018 I accepted the challenge to rescore the picture. I dedicate it to the film’s director whom I deeply admire.
Composing took me about 3 months resulting in 75 minutes of music (see this post for some interesting stats). If you love medieval-fantasy romantic film scores, even if you’re a fan of the original (as am I, btw), you should give it a listen! I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did composing the score.
NEW! The Day of the Falcon has recently been released on global music services!
