Innovative composer duo reinvent the music of blockbuster
video game movie franchise RESIDENT EVIL


LOS ANGELES, August 26th, 2010 - Composer duo tomandandy, best known for their edgy,
sublime sonic landscapes for movies such as P2, THE HILLS HAVE EYES, THE MOTHMAN
PROPHECIES, KILLING ZOE and pioneering soundtracks for numerous television commercial
campaigns, have created an original, hybrid genre score for RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE, the highly-anticipated fourth installment of the popular
film series based on the video games. Written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and
starring Milla Jovovich, RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE presented in 3-D will be released to
digital IMAX® theatres simultaneously with the film's worldwide release commencing
September 10, 2010.
"Our mission for the RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE score was to reinvent the sound of
the RESIDENT EVIL saga," said tomandandy. "At every turn, director Paul W. S.
Anderson encouraged us to avoid cliché. He encouraged us to explore the edges of
noise and modern sound synthesis. This was an amazing gift."
RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE depicts a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its
victims into the Undead. Milla Jovovich stars as Alice who continues on her journey
to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation
reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new
lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when
they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead - and Alice and her comrades
are about to step into a deadly trap.
RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE is a Constantin Film International GmbH, Davis Films/Impact
Pictures Inc. Production, written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, produced by
Jeremy Bolt, Paul W.S. Anderson, Robert Kulzer, Don Carmody, Bernd Eichinger and
Samuel Hadida, and executive produced by Martin Moszkowicz and Victor Hadida.

Describing their creative process of composing a unique music score for RESIDENT
EVIL: AFTERLIFE, tomandandy explain, "We developed an aggressive palette of heavily
distorted sounds and complex metric structures. At times the music is soft, gentle
and airy, a fusion of organic sounds and electronics. Bracketing the music world
with these two extremes: aggressive and distorted on one end and soft and dreamy
on the other, we framed a palette, one with tremendous range.

tomandandy have created original music for feature films by Academy Award® winning
filmmakers including Oliver Stone and Roger Avary, produced music with recording
artists, among them Lou Reed and David Byrne, and collaborated with such artists
as author William Burroughs, performance artist Laurie Anderson and visual artist
Jenny Holzer. In the early 90's tomandandy helped reshape the role of music in the
film, television and advertising industries by developing a new technology that
lowered music production costs to a fraction of previous levels. The new aesthetic
that emerged as a result was MTV's cut-up, non-linear, "look and feel." For more
