MARK MANCINA似乎是一位有点昙花一现意味的作曲家，也许是出道时几年的出色表现和巨大成功间接的给了他一种无形的负担。当然与HZ(hans zimmer)的矛盾也不得不提。
最近已不多见他的作品了，而风格与他接近的TREVOR RABIN、STEVE JABLONSKY则可说是风头正劲。回顾他以前的作品，的确为他的才华而折服，而他最近的《生死狙击》表现却十分的平庸。(以上内容摘自炫音音乐论坛 - TTDD)
本专辑为320KBPS的MP3原声.从1首~5首都是歌版.剩下的第6首开始到第9首为Mark Mancina的Promo Score.配乐中用了木吉他,小提琴,欧洲教堂用的风琴还有竖琴.MARK MANCINA的配乐总是给人一种风风火火的感觉.专辑封面发行方仍然使用以前的封面,因此对本版本的PROMO SCORE不做追加封面再版.
Born in Santa Monica, he began his musical training at an early age focusing on classical guitar, classical piano and composition. His scores frequently feature his own performances on piano, guitar, bass, percussion and drums, highlighting unique sounds harvested from a personal collection of traditional, exotic, and custom instruments from around the world.
Recent career highlights include composing the original score for the upcoming Warner Bros. release August Rush, the story of a musical prodigy's search for his parents which culminates in a Central Park concert featuring Mancina's "Rhapsody No. 1 in C Major"; scoring Camille, a romantic fantasy starring Sienna Miller; the recent Antoine Fuqua collaboration, Shooter; co-scoring the CBS primetime drama Criminal Minds; and co-composing the new Walt Disney Pictures logo.
Other projects include the Oscar-winning Training Day, for which he provided a benchmark score that expanded the boundaries of scoring street-wise drama and is widely used as a temp track, while his breakout score for Speed influenced the sound of subsequent action movies. His scores for Twister, Bad Boys, Tarzan and Moll Flanders are among his favorites.
In addition to his work as a film and television composer, Mancina added Broadway to his list of accomplishments when he co-wrote songs, produced and arranged the score for the musical production of The Lion King. In his role as Producer of Music for the Stage, Mancina collaborated with Lebo M and director Julie Taymor to create the distinctive musical atmosphere of the Tony-award-winning show.
Mancina continues to expand his repertoire and his instrument collection. His studios are in Santa Monica.
