This bright, virtuosic score by Alain Mayrand for the Jackie Chan film was the best reviewed independent score of 2010 (link). It made numerous top 10 lists from critics and fans alike and got Alain named “Composer to Watch” by L.A.’s Film Music Magazine.
“Alain Mayrand has composed one of the most delightful scores of the year. In tracks like “The Fantastic Highway Chase” and “The Flying Bus,” Mayrand’s compositional skill comes through in full force. He deconstructs his themes, pulling rhythmic and melodic motifs from wherever he can to serve the needs of the cues, creating thrilling musical set pieces. SILKBOY is a rich, thematic score that still feels fresh and contemporary. THE LEGEND OF SILKBOY is one musical tale that deserves to be spun over and over again.” ~ Film Score Click Track
“Mayrand is clearly a composer to watch for in the coming years. His talents are on display with his work for Silkboy. His themes are memorable and his action writing superb. You get a lot of music for your money – and none of it feels like filler material or dull atmospheric puff. Mayrand’s music is exhilarating, full of energy and just… well, bloody fantastic to be honest.” ~ Darren Rea, Review Graveyard
“Mayrand clearly knows a thing or two about action writing and I really do hope that he gets to expand his writing to a fuller scale action film some day. “Saying Farewell” is another highlight, as we get one final triumphant statement of the flying theme alongside Silkboy’s theme. Mayrand is clearly a composer to watch for in the coming years. His talents are on display with his work for Silkboy. His themes are memorable and his action writing superb.” ~ Film Score Reflections
