A month after conducting in London the music of Jean-Jacques Annaud's Wolf Totem, James Horner continues with the recording of the Chilean film The 33, from Mexican-American director Patricia Riggen (Girl in Progress – 2012), who brings together on screen Antonio Banderas, Lou Diamond Phillip, Gabriel Byrne, Juliette Binoche, Martin Sheen …
The film is based on the mining disaster of 2010 in which a group of thirty-three miners have been trapped in the San Jose mine in Chile. The action will focus on the two-month effort to try to save them. The release is scheduled for 2015.
Armen Ksajikian, prolific and talented cellist of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, has shared with us a few photos taken on October 17 at the famous and historic 20th Century Fox Newman Scoring Stage.

He also spoke briefly to us about the music:
"A small string section, no woodwind, brass or percussion. More beautiful pipe solos by Tony Hinnigan and guitar solos by George Doering! It's a beautiful score!"
