Serj Tankian – 1915 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Label: Stage & Screen
Original Release Date: April, 2016

Serj Tankian's first full feature length film score the 1915 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack was released on April 22, 2016. The film “1915” was originally released theatrically in April of 2015. This soundtrack is being released around not only the anniversary of the film's initial release, but also the anniversary of annual commemoration and recognition of the film's subject matter; The Armenian Genocide that occurred during WWI.
In addition to the compositions that made it into the film, the 1915 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack includes 4 bonus tracks, including a track titled '100 Years', that Serj cocomposed with New Zealand composer John Psathas. A video for “100 Years” was released in April of 2015 to commemorate the centennial of the Genocide that affected Armenians, Greeks and Assyrians. Elements of the composition were used in various portions of the ‘1915’ film score, so when producing the soundtrack, Serj determined that it would be fitting to add ‘100 Years’ in it’s entirety into the album sequence.
