Amelia Warner, award-winning composer of Mr. Malcolm’s List, makes her debut on the Lakeshore Records Podcast! She discusses her process on how to capture the sound of love, mischief, and a busy mind; speaks candidly about how to be a composer if you’re not classically trained; composing for comedy (such as on Wild Mountain Thyme); elaborates on conceptualizing dialogue as rhythm, and so much more!
Lakeshore Records has released Mr. Malcolm’s List—Original Motion Picture Soundtrack featuring music by award-winning neo-classical composer Amelia Warner (Wild Mountain Thyme), available now digitally. Warner is adept at creating timeless sounding scores for films with expansive stories and for this historical drama, she balances gravitas and grandeur with playful, energetic cues.
“The score, by Amelia Warner, announces when to titter and when to swoon. In its cleverest flourish, it accompanies the ladies’ marital campaigns with a rollicking military march.” – New York Times
