Paul Grabowsky recently recorded his score for the upcoming drama The Eye of the Storm. The film is set in a Sydney suburb, where two nurses, a housekeeper and a solicitor attend to Elizabeth Hunter as her expatriate son and daughter convene at her deathbed. The movie stars Charlotte Rampling, Geoffrey Rush, Dustin Clare, Judy Davis and is directed by Fred Schepisi. The director worked with Grabowsky on his last three projects Last Orders, It Runs in the Family and Empire Falls and is best known in the film music community for his collaborations with Jerry Goldsmith on such movies as The Russia House, Mr. Baseball, I.Q. and Fierce Creatures. The Eye of the Storm marks the director’s first Australian production in over 20 years. No release date has been set yet for the movie, but it is expected to premiere later this year.

Grabowsky collaborated with saxophonist Branford Marsalis on the score for the film. Marsalis previously performed on Jerry Goldsmith’s score for Schepisi’s 1990 thriller The Russia House starring Sean Connery. Also performing on the score are Australians Niko Schauble on drums and Frank Di Sario on bass. Visit The Australian to find out more about the collaboration. The score for The Eye of the Storm will have its world premiere at a live performance at this year’s Melbourne International Jazz Festival in June.
