Composer Aaron Zigman Scores Battle of The Sexes Comedy
(July 27, 2009- Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release the original soundtrack for THE UGLY TRUTH, available digitally (iTunes and Amazon Digital) on July 14th and in stores on July 28, 2009. Aaron Zigman (Sex and the City, The Proposal) composed the music.
Aaron Zigman is a classically trained pianist who had an early foundation for writing melody and a command of rhythm and different styles. Zigman began his musical career as a producer and arranger for popular music stars, including Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, Oleta Adams, Phil Collins, Tina Turner, Patti Labelle, Chicago, Nona Gaye, Carly Simon, the Pointer Sisters, Huey Lewis, Christina Aguilera and Seal. His passion for orchestration also led Zigman to become an accomplished composer of concert works, having written numerous symphonic pieces. Among his works is a 35 minute-long tone poem divided into five movements, written as a tribute for Ytzhak Rabin, which was performed by the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony. The USC Symphony orchestra has performed Zigman's "Impressions," a suite for a wind ensemble.
Zigman got his start in feature films in 2002, composing the score for director Nick Cassavetes’ John Q. The two collaborated again on The Notebook, Alpha Dog and My Sister’s Keeper. Zigman’s other credits include Akeelah and the Bee, the dance film Step Up and its sequel Step Up 2: The Streets, Bridge to Terebithia, Sex and the City and The Proposal.
The battle of the sexes heats up in Columbia Pictures' comedy THE UGLY TRUTH. Abby Richter (Katherine Heigl) is a romantically challenged morning show producer whose search for Mr. Perfect has left her hopelessly single. She's in for a rude awakening when her bosses team her with Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler), a hardcore TV personality who promises to spill the ugly truth on what makes men and women tick
