LOS ANGELES - April 16, 2020 - PRLog -- Ronen Landa's original score to the upcoming horror film, 1BR is getting a digital release on April 29, 2020 by Lux/Eon Records. The film, written and directed by David Marmor, is getting distributed by Dark Sky Films on April 24, 2020. The film stars Nicole Brydon Bloom, Naomi Grossman, Giles Matthey, Taylor Nichols, Alan Blumenfeld, Celeste Sully, Susan Davis, Clayton Hoff, and Earnestine Phillips. Some of Landa's other credits include IFC Midnight's At the Devil's Door and IFC Films' The Pact, which originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The score consists of 25 tracks and will be available on all major digital sites including iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, Amazon and Apple Music.

When discussing the 1BR score Landa says, "I'm excited to share the 1BR score— it reflects months of work alongside director David Marmor to help him tell this hair-raising story.  We dug deep to find emotional themes that could capture the essence of the drama, and set them against instrumental textures concocted with everything from contrabass woodwinds and bowed metal springs to reversed electric guitars.  It was a great opportunity to fuse the experimental and sentimental sides of my work."

The film's synopsis reads: After leaving behind a painful past to follow her dreams, Sarah scores the perfect Hollywood apartment. But something is not right. Unable to sleep, tormented by strange noises and threatening notes, her new life quickly starts to unravel. By the time she learns the horrifying truth, it's too late. Caught in a waking nightmare, Sarah must find the strength to hold onto her crumbling sanity…or be trapped forever in an existential hell.

Driven by the endless possibility of sound, composer Ronen Landa creates music that is stirring, inventive, and bold. The press has hailed his work as "an astounding auditory journey" (Cinema Without Borders) and a "multi-layered feast for the ears" (Review Graveyard).

Arriving in New York City as an aspiring rock guitarist at age 17, Landa was soon enthralled by the classical, experimental and world music traditions he encountered. Initially writing songs and chamber works, his music now accompanies dozens of film, television, art, and new media projects.

Feature films Landa has scored include Nicholas McCarthy's horror hits THE PACT (Sundance) and AT THE DEVIL'S DOOR (SXSW), Ben Hickernell's romantic drama A RISING TIDE (Showtime) and Rob Legato's psychological thriller ELOISE  (Starz).

Documentaries include Andrew Napier's MAD AS HELL (Hot Docs Conscious Media Award Winner), Cambria Matlow and Morgan Robinson's BURNING IN THE SUN (PBS, Cinema for Peace International Green Film Award Winner), Haydar Daffar's landmark Iraq War film THE DREAMS OF SPARROWS (SXSW) and Nadav Kurtz's PARAÌSO (NYTimes Op-Doc; Sundance; Tribeca Film Festival Best Short Documentary Award Winner).

Landa is a Sundance Institute Composer Fellow and Vilcek Foundation New American Filmmaker. In 2018 he received the Jerry Goldsmith Award for Best Song alongside co-writer/performer Anna Bulbrook for "Whiteout," from Cambria Matlow's documentary WOODSRIDER.

Currently, Landa resides in Los Angeles. In addition to his work, he serves as Associates Board Chair for Education Through Music – Los Angeles, a nonprofit organization that ensures children attending inner-city schools can receive a high quality music education.
