Predator (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Music Composed and Conducted by Alan Silvestri

It is with great enthusiasm that Renovatio Records brings you this new presentation of Alan Silvestri' classic action sci-fi score for the 1987 film Predator. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and brilliantly directed by John McTiernan, the motion picture tells the story of an elite special forces team venturing into the deep jungles of Central America to rescue hostages from guerrillas. However, their expertise is put to the ultimate test when coming across a technologically advanced extraterrestrial life form that starts secretly stalking and hunting them.

Composer Alan Silvestri was brought by Fox after proving how talented he was with an orchestra after Back To The Future. And he didn't disappoint. Silvestri introduced a plethora of motifs for the different situations in which the characters found themselves, plus providing an unforgettable military main theme with strong brass and a bombastic percussion section. Throw in a wonderful trumpet solo for scenes of mourning, and thrilling string passages for the otherworldly mystery lurking in the jungle and you get a score that has clearly helped the film establish itself as a cult favorite and one of the best action science-fiction films in cinema history.

The score was first introduced to the market in the form of several overpriced bootlegs, and at the turn of the century, it saw its first commercial release from Varèse Sarabande. Later on, Intrada Records took care of pleasing fans with two new edition including exclusive unreleased material. Now, Renovatio Records brings you this new presentation including the best moments of Silvestri's work, following the chronological order of the film, but without spoiling the listening experience as the previous lengthy and unstructured releases. Pure enjoyment is guaranteed here!
