Paul Haslinger began as a classical musician but migrated to electronica when he joined the German electronic music group Tangerine Dream in 1986. Three years later, he moved to Los Angeles and began a successful career as a musical composer for film and television productions. His computer-generated music can be heard most commonly in action movies. These include the bank heist film "Takers" and the no-holds-barred "Shoot 'Em Up," which (naturally) features copious gunfire (though that doesn't deter rugged British thespian Clive Owen from delivering a baby mid-shoot-out). The first movie scored by Haslinger to open as No. 1 at the weekend box office was the 2003 horror film "Underworld," which recounted the saga of an internecine war between vampires and werewolves. He also scored the film's sequel, "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans." Haslinger's most frequent Hollywood collaboration has been with director John Stockwell, the majority of whose productions (such as the slasher/torture film "Turistas") have made use of Haslinger's music.
