Theater Premier "The Fourth State" - Music: Heiko Maile
(2012/03/07) After "The Wave" and "We Are The Night", "The Fourth State" is now the third collaboration between Heiko Maile and director Dennis Gansel. The goal was to create music that was modern, suspenseful, and atmospheric, but that would also convey a certain sense of Russian melancholy. Along with a mix of orchestral strings, electronic instrumentation and guitars, additional instruments including cymbals, accordion, and numerous isolated flute sounds were implemented.
Starting tomorrow, March 8, 2012, the film will play in German theaters with Moritz Bleibtreu taking the main role in the film. The Original Soundtrack composed by Heiko Maile will be released on Friday, March 9, 2012 and will be available on CD and as a digital download. Heiko devoted an additional 3 weeks to mix and optimize the score as a stereo version. The Mastering was completed separately by Sven "Samson" Geiger of Neckarklangwerke. For the final technical sound polish, the completed digitally mastered recordings were copied to an analog one inch wide stereo tape reel. The result is a very fine and natural sounding auditory impression.
