Biography

Austrian-born Paul Haslinger has secured a distinctive reputation for composing film scores, which incorporate both robust classical elements and compelling electronica. Formally trained in his hometown of Linz, Haslinger ventured to Vienna, where he continued his classical studies while exploring the new domain of electronic music. Auditions for the band Tangerine Dream led to a five year collaboration, four albums, and several films, including Miracle Mile, Near Dark, and Canyon Dreams.

After his “Dream” period, Haslinger released three solo albums and scored two landmark animated science-fiction films, Planetary Traveler and Infinity’s Child. He continued perfecting his film scoring skills as the programmer for Graeme Revell, supplying memorable textures and atmospheric style to Blow, the Negotiator, The Siege, Pitch Black, and Tomb Raider, to name a few.

Haslinger earned his first solo credit as a film composer for the 2000 movie Cheaters, directed by John Stockwell. Since then, he has worked on Stockwell’s Crazy/Beautiful, Blue Crush, and last summer’s Into The Blue, starring Jessica Alba and Paul Walker.
2002 found Haslinger composing and producing musical segments for Steven Spielberg’s thriller Minority Report. In 2003, Haslinger scored Len Wiseman’s Underworld, his first film to open #1 at the US box office. In recent years, Haslinger has made a conscious effort to expand and diversify his work.

    "World Without Rules" is very compelling material. Redolent of Ulf Söderberg - the tribal, often frenetic atmosphere - but far less Teutonic and more eclectic in its inclusion of global styles. I thought I would revile the electronica, but the confluence of dramatic African percussion and mid-90's post-rave techno is refreshing... the whole mélange co-operates assiduously to produce an exceptional whole. Cheers Paul. I absolutely loathe the Underworld films and all of Statham's generic braggadocio pictures, but what are the soundtracks like?

    The first part of eternity and a day (till 2:05) is one of the most epic pieces of music ever made.

    Not impressed with The Three Musketeers. The Venice Heist is the best track for me, but overall it is not remarkable.

    Just got Takers Amazon cd-r edition, and sadly I agree with Julia, something really missing... can't be compared with Paul's great usual work, in other way his score for the 2009 thriller "After Life" starring Liam Neeson is great ! Unfortunatly no label have published this music to the public, even in mp3 lossy format...
