FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LAKESHORE RECORDS TO RELEASE
WE ARE LEGION: THE STORY OF THE HACKTIVISTS – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK

Features Original Music by John Dragonetti

(November 19, 2012 – Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release We Are Legion: The Story of The Hacktivists – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on November 20, 2012. The soundtrack features original music composed by John Dragonetti (Surfwise, Freeloaders). The film was an official selection of Slamdance, SXSW, and was named “Best Picture Documentary”, at the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival.

“After I met with Brian [Knappenberger, director] and got a strong feel for what the film was about,” said Dragonetti, “I immediately started brainstorming. The first thing that intrigued me was the juxtaposition of 8bit - or chiptune - elements from 70's and 80's video game music and the warmer, more ‘human’, instrumentation of strings and other more traditional film score elements.”

John Dragonetti is a music composer and producer living in Los Angeles, California. In the past few years John has the scored the music for several award-winning TV shows which have aired on HBO, Showtime, Sundance Channel, NBC and E!. He also composed the music for Doug Pray’s documentary film, Surfwise, the AMC series Small Town Security, and the upcoming Broken Lizard produced comedy feature, Freeloaders.

John is also a founding member, along with Blake Hazard, of the band The Submarines. The group has released three critically acclaimed albums and continues to record and tour internationally.

In recent years, the radical online community known as Anonymous has been associated with attacks or “raids” on hundreds of targets. Angered by issues as diverse as copyright abuse and police brutality, they’ve taken on child pornographers, the Bay Area Rapid Transit system and even forced a standoff with Mexican drug cartels. They’ve hit corporate targets like Sony, cyber-security firms like HBGary Federal and would-be web controllers like the Church of Scientology.

They shut down Mastercard, Visa and Paypal after those groups froze financial transactions to Wikileaks. Along with other hacktivist groups like Telecomix, they’ve launched cyber attacks against foreign governments in support of the Arab Spring. They served as tech support for the Occupy movement and have put their mark on countless uprisings around the world. One participant described their protests as “ultra coordinated motherfuckery.”

So who is Anonymous?

We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists, takes us inside the complex culture and history of Anonymous. The film explores early hacktivist groups like Cult of the Dead Cow and Electronic Disturbance Theater, and then moves to Anonymous’ own raucous and unruly beginnings on the website 4Chan.

Dragonetti described:
“There's scene in the film where tens of thousands of Anons (members of Anonymous) come together for protests simultaneously in different cities around the world. This is a huge deal for these guys - they'd been until this point, well, anonymous. Their acts of civil disobedience had always been done online from the safety of their homes or in parents' basements. This is the moment when their movement becomes humanized and they feel an incredible sense of empowerment. We were looking for something anthematic here. Not in a John Williams sort of way - more punk rock. I always thought of this piece as the ‘Theme Song’ (The cue is actually titled ‘You Meet Your Own People, Finally’) and had this fantasy that it would become part of the actual movement - not just a film cue.”

Luminant Media presents We Are Legion: The Story of The Hacktivists, in select theaters now and available on DVD and BluRay on November 23, 2012. We Are Legion: The Story of The Hacktivists -- Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on Lakeshore Records will be available digitally on November 20, 2012.
