Composer Bryan E. Miller’s work on the docudrama America is already being noticed by no less than Variety which noted in its review of the film: “Tech values are polished across the board, with composer Bryan E. Miller earning special credit for his genuinely stirring opening theme.”
"America," historical docudrama from New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza, Academy Award-winner producer Gerald Molen (Schindler's List, Jurassic Park, Minority Report), and director John Sullivan (2016) was released nationally on July 2, 2014 through Lionsgate and earned an unusual A+ from Cinemascore, a poll taken of filmgoers. The team's previous film 2016: Obama's America, earned $33 million in 2012 becoming the second highest grossing political documentary in history.
Miller’s soundtrack carries the audience on a journey that spans continents, centuries, and musical styles—from orchestral, Americana, Mexican, Irish, Native American, Negro spirituals, electronica, to protest rock—which gave Miller a chance to showcase the depth and range of his musical expertise. Miller composed over 125 minutes of music for the film. As the delivery date approached and the film continued to be fine tuned, Bryan scored each scene and wrote extra sections and alternative endings which could be conformed to match picture once the film was locked. Miller's approach proved to be essential and provided an effective and emotional atmosphere throughout the film, which is unusual in this genre of filmmaking.
Miller hired over 50 musicians, vocalists, and orchestrators, including Emmy nominees and Grammy winning audio engineers. The score features some interesting instruments, everything from a 30 piece string orchestra, Mexican guitar, Charango, Irish fiddle, an antique washboard, and unique percussion ranging from huge orchestral drums to trash cans and metal pots and pans.
Milan Records released the soundtrack on all major DSP's including iTunes and Amazon mp3, and the album is rapidly rising on the iTunes soundtrack charts. Also featured on the soundtrack is a track by Dave Mustaine of Megadeth performing The Star Spangled Banner, produced by Mark Joseph.
“I’m deeply honored to have been entrusted with such an ambitious and visionary film,” noted Miller.
