In 2008, Lakeshore Records sat down with composer Carter Burwell, who spoke about scoring the Academy Award® nominated In Brugesfilm. He said Bruges, Belgium, is very much a character in this surreal comedy and his approach is to “bring something that isn’t there in the film already.” Listen to the interview below.
Carter’s next album out on Lakeshore Records is The Family Fang (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), out on April 29 (pre-order here).
Starring Colin Farrell (who won a Golden Globe® for his role), Brendan Gleeson and Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes, the acclaimed film went on to garner over 20 other film awards and over 50 nominations.

The best films waste no time, and In Bruges hits the ground sprinting with this pin-sharp voiceover: “After I’d killed him, I dropped the gun in the Thames, washed the residue off my hands in the bathroom of a Burger King, and walked home to await instructions.” – The Guardian
