When you hear as many film scores as I do, it's remarkably easy to become jaded. The same old composers write the same old music for the same old films in the same old style; there is so little innovation or originality these days in the mainstream film music world that listening to the most banal new releases becomes more of a chore than a pleasure, something to be endured rather than embraced. It is for this reason that scores like The Red Canvas must be embraced and celebrated, and why young, massively talented composers like James Peterson need to be lauded; debuts as good as this don't come along very often.

I freely admit I know next to nothing about James Peterson. He grew up in Southern California, graduated from UCLA, and wrote music for commercials, video games, short films, and for the South Bay Ballet Company, prior to scoring this, his first theatrical film. Directed by Kenneth Chamitoff, The Red Canvas is an action drama set in the world of underground mixed martial arts. Ernie Reyes Jr. (who fans will remember as the karate kid from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II back in the early 1990s) stars as Johnny Sanchez, a talented fighter who gets in trouble with the law, and who is forced by a crooked prison warden (John Savage) to take part in brutal illegal fights overseen by the evil Krang (George Takei). While the film itself sounds like a rather run-of-the-mill actioner - had it been made in the 80s it would have undoubtedly starred Jean-Claude Van Damme - the music is something else. It is utterly transcendent, rising above its low-budget roots.

As a break with convention, I'll start at the end with the thing that everyone is talking about: "Ballet for Brawlers".
