It’s one of the greatest adventure stories every told, which is why storytellers keep telling it. A new version of The Three Musketeers is in theaters now and [mp3com-artist]Paul Haslinger[/mp3com-artist] has a great new piece of music as part of the soundtrack.
Austrian born and trained, Paul Haslinger joined venerable German electronic music group [mp3com-artist]Tangerine Dream[/mp3com-artist] while still in his mid-20s. Over the course of five years with the group, he participated in the recording of 15 albums, ventured with the band on 4 world tours and contributed to a number of soundtracks, including Miracle Mile and Near Dark.
Moving to LA in ’92, Haslinger set up his own shop and recorded three solo records before teaming with well-known film composer Graeme Revell in 1998. Earning his first solo credit in 2000 (with HBO’s Cheaters) and the first placement of his solo music in a major motion picture (in Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report) thrust Haslinger onto the A-list of Hollywood composers.
Since that time, Haslinger has worked on countless films, contributed music to computer games and collaborated with several dozen artists, including [mp3com-artist]Nona Hendryx[/mp3com-artist], Robert Rich and Joey Waronker.
“Gripping” and “electrifying” are the words that come to mind as we listen to the pulsing staccato of this 2 minute soundtrack segment from the newest telling of The Three Musketeers.
