Welcome

1M1 Recordsí new release is a double film score release. It will be available in a month or so, put back a few weeks from the originally announced date of late April. Keep watching the site and the newsletters for confirmation of these details and the exact release date for ordering. The scores are "Tom Sawyer" and "The Last of the Mohicans", both composed by Simon Walker, based on the classic novels.

This year, so far, 1M1 has been still developing the projects announced in recent newsletters. We have also been concentrating on keeping customers and visitors up to date with current releases of all new Australian and New Zealand films and their soundtracks. Although making these new non-1M1 releases available, we have also been adding a few older Australian soundtracks to the 1M1 website every month as well.

This month we have made available the new orchestral score by the Polish composer Klaus Badelt for the current Australian box-office success, with Heath Ledger and Orlando Bloom, "Ned Kelly". Also, this month we making the soundtracks available for "Young Einstein" (William Motzing/Martin Armiger/Tommy Tycho), "Hotel de Love" and the acclaimed Australasian film, "The Piano" (Michael Nyman).

In recent months we have also added "The Monkey's Mask" (Single Gun Theory with the Sydney Alpha Ensemble); "Sirens" (Rachel Portman); "Sample People" (Rafael May), "Risk", (Don Miller-Robinson); "Cut" (Guy Gross); the award-winning score by Peter Gabriel for "Rabbit-Proof Fence", (which won the AFI award for Best Score, and was nominated for the Golden Globe award for Best Music score for a Feature Film); "Bootmen" (Cezary Skubiszewski); "Paradise Beach" (the official tv-series soundtrack); and the New Zealand feature film "Rain" (Neil Finn/Lisa Germano).

During the next month we will also be adding the score for the New Zealand film "Whale Rider" by Academy Award-winning composer Lisa Gerrard. Keep an eye on the More Soundtracks page during the next three weeks for the listing of this new score.

There is an update on some recent scores by Australian composers as well.

Your feedback is always welcome. Please email me at info@1m1.com.au.

Thatís it for this month, but we look forward to having you back here for updates in the July 2003 Newsletter.

Collectors Items; rare 1M1 CDs priced in the premium range because of the difficulty in sourcing them, containing 1M1 CDs like "Devil in the Flesh / We of the Never Never", "Roadgames / Patrick", "Race for the Yankee Zephyr / The Survivor" and "Harlequin / The Day After Halloween": items which have very few soundtracks left in stock and are quite unlikely to become available again in the foreseeable future.
