The original motion picture soundtrack for the Turkish blockbuster drama The Butterfly’s Dream was released on CD and digitally in the United States on November 7, 2013. Composed, arranged and produced by celebrated Turkish feature film, TV, and video game composer Rahman Altin, the film’s epic soundtrack immediately became No. 1 on Turkey’s music charts following its release and has since won the World Soundtrack Academy’s ‘Public Choice Award’ for 2013. Altin’s score is earnest and majestic, an emotionally provoking rainbow of orchestral textures and lyrical motifs, both introspective and exhilarating in its often quiet beauty and spacious appeal. Performed exquisitely here by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Miriam Nemcova, the solo piano parts are played subtly and expressively by the composer himself.
Award winning composer, arranger and producer Rahman Altin is a dynamic presence in the world of music creation, successfully scoring for film, TV and video games. Along with his recent scoring of The Butterfly’s Dream he’s worked on numerous campaigns, trailers and projects, including Iron-Man 3, The Amazing Spiderman, The Green Lantern, Monsters vs. Aliens and the miniseries The Pacific. Additionally, the venerable Lucas Film company licensed his music for the Star Wars BluRay campaign and Rahman has also won several "Best Film Music" awards for his brilliant score for the feature film Waiting for Heaven.
Rahman Altin's interest in music manifested itself at an early age, influenced by his father, a musician, and his mother, a poet and painter. During his college years he started to explore merging work on a synthesizer and computer with his classical education. After finishing music conservatory he sang as a tenor at the Ankara State Opera, while composing and arranging his first projects. Now living in both Los Angeles and Istanbul, he is the first and only musician from Turkey to participate in the Film Scoring Workshop sponsered by ASCAP and Fox. He is also dedicated to nurturing young talent by serving on numerous juries for international film & TV awards.
Renowned Director/Writer/Actor Yilmaz Ertoğan’s The Butterfly’s Dream was released in February, 2013, and was subsequently selected to represent Turkey as its entry for Best Foreign Language Film for 2014’s Academy Awards and Golden Globe Awards. The Butterfly’s Dream is the most expensive film ever to be produced in Turkey and this commitment is reflected in its impeccable production values, epic music and sensational response at the Istanbul Film Festival.
