RT in a new guise as a maker of soundtracks to accompany a filmseries. Although his music was used before on Grizzly Man by Werner Herzog, I don't recall if this was made specially for the film. The music for The Cold Blue was. And what a difference with RT's music we knew before. And to a filmseries with a subject which I would not associate with RT right away..

Yes, Grizzly Man was definitely written specifically for the film. RT does have some form as a soundtrack writer, most notably the Australian movie Sweet Talker and a BBC drama series in the 80s called The Marksman both of which soundtracks were released on album.

Seems I've missed a few things over the years! He already started making soundtracks in the eighties. The man has a broader field of work than I knew.

Do you know the French Frith Kaiser Thompson albums?  Just brilliant....

Though some of what he used in Grizzly Man was a re-use of part of Strict Tempo.
