MONSTER is Rated R. 111 minutes

MONSTER, written and directed by Patty Jenkins, stars Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci. MONSTER is a shockingly moving film that burrows deep beneath the tabloid-sized headline stories of Aileen Wuornos (Theron), the drifter prostitute executed last year in Florida for murdering seven men. MONSTER premiered in November as a close to the AFI Film Festival, and was one of the most sought after tickets at the festival.

BT went on location in Florida to gain a true sense of the story. The score was recorded and mixed over a period of four months at BT's The Buddha Room, as well as several live record rooms to track additional drums, guitar and stand-up bass. Different to BT's past scores such as The Fast and the Furious, which amalgamated his 80-piece orchestral compositions with electronic music, his score for MONSTER blends roots Americana-like organic, melodic sensibilities and non-traditional acoustic instrumentation to garner a complex, powerful and darkly beautiful sequence of music. Throughout the recording and mixing process, BT worked daily with Jenkins and Theron to capture the story's yearning, passion, loss and tragedy. The entire score was conceived and recorded completely in 5.1 surround sound. An extended 5.1 mix of the score featuring over two hours of original music, will be released on DVD next month by DTS Entertainment, and will include special audio and video enhancements not available anywhere else. BT scored The Fast and the Furious, Go and Driven, produced for notable artists such as Britney Spears, *NSYNC and Sonique, remixed for artists such as Madonna, Lenny Kravitz, Korn, Seal and Sarah McLachlin, and worked with Sting and Peter Gabriel. Earlier this year, he released his fourth full-length release, Emotional Technology (Nettwerk America), featuring the single, Simply Being Loved (Somnambulist).
