The previously reported Atlantic Screen Music company, a newish investment fund investing in the production of original music scores for film and TV projects, has teamed up with the Metropolis Group to form a new label, to be called Metropolis Movie Music, which will release soundtracks created by Atlantic’s investments, most of which will be recorded at Metropolis’s London studio complex.

The new company will be headed up by Metropolis Group MD Ian Brenchley and Atlantic Screen Music’s founders and CEOs Tim Hollier and Simon Fawcett, and work with Universal’s Fontana on international distribution. The first release will be the official soundtrack to the recent David MacKenzie film ‘You Instead’.

Hollier and Fawcett told CMU: “We are currently producing and funding some 40 plus film scores per year, to be able to offer our clients an immediate and hands on soundtrack release coupled together with our close relationship with Metropolis Recording Studios gives us a significant advantage over our competitors, be they major publishers or individual record companies”.
