INGRAM MARSHALL's Music Featured in "Shutter Island"
Those being scared out of their wits by Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" can thank Ingram Marshall's Fog Tropes for helping create the opening mood. Also heard is the Prelude to his work Alcatraz. Both include sounds recorded around the San Francisco Bay (the latter from the now-abandoned Alcatraz Prison). Mark Swed writes about Fog Tropes and the other contemporary classical works in this groundbreaking soundtrack on the L.A. Times' arts site Culture Monster.
