William Ryan Fritch’s original full-length OST for GoPro, titled, 'Eagle Hunters In A New World' releases worldwide on March 3, 2017. The vinyl and CD edition of the album arrive in the ever stunning physically and sonically minded fashion that LTS has become known for. Eagle Hunters... takes form with a lush 180 gram audiophile grade vinyl housed in a heavyweight reverse printed jacket (limited to 500). This lacquer was masterfully cut by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering in NY. The CD edition (limited to 150) is a panoramic handcrafted and hand-numbered case with glass mastered CD. Both formats come with a download coupon featuring an extended digital bonus edition of the OST featuring 3 exclusive songs: “Goshawks II”, “Distant Hooves”, and “On Strong Winds”, plus a 22 page full-color PDF booklet showcasing many of the breathtaking scenes from the GoPro films.
For those that have followed the evolution of GoPro’s impressive video and film output over the last 3 years , William Ryan Fritch’s music will be immediately recognizable. From product launches, viral videos, heartwarming character studies to captivating short films; his music has helped punctuate some of GoPro’s most memorable stories with his beautiful, sweeping compositions.
With Eagle Hunters in a New World, GoPro has forged ahead into new and exciting territory with the breadth of its film making and has partnered with Fritch to create a singular and engrossing sound world that underscores both the otherworldly beauty of Mongolia and the unique social and cultural changes that are affecting age old traditions and ways of life. Drawing its rich colorful sound world from both traditional Mongolian instrumentation and modern orchestration, the music of Eagle Hunters.. captures both the almost alien vastness of Mongolia’s landscape, still largely undefiled by modernity, and its jarring juxtaposition with the rampant growth and startling change its cities are undergoing.
In its most ambient moments, immersive, otherworldly choirs and strings envelope plaintive and pastoral calm like unencumbered winds sweeping across vast plains. At its most bombastic, the rhythms race and rumble like beating hooves in pursuit. And in its most soaring moments, the music emanates an aura of the surreal grace and power these golden eagles display with reverence, awe and a melancholy of knowing the world they fly over is changing so fast.
