The scores of Carter Burwell are featured in the latest CD review by Daniel Schweiger, now at Film Music Magazine. Daniel shares his thoughts on Carter’s collaboration with filmmaker Todd Haynes on this “transcendent” movie (The Atlantic).
The composer has previously worked with Haynes on “Carol,” “Velvet Goldmine,” and “Mildred Pierce,” and this time around he creates a lovely music box of sounds to accompany Haynes’ new movie. – Edward Davis, The Playlist
Listen to the latest track off the Wonderstruck soundtrack entitled, “Dioramas” by Academy Award®-nominated composer, Carter Burwell (Carol, Fargo) now only at The Playlist! The album is out Friday on Lakeshore Records!
Lakeshore Records will release the Wonderstruck (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) digitally October 20 and on CD/LP later this year. Simultaneously, a second version of the album, containing three bonus tracks, is also being released as an Amazon Exclusive Special Edition. Both releases feature original music by Carter Burwell (Carol, Fargo).
“The script specifies that Rose’s segment of the film would be silent because her character is deaf, so music was going to play a large role,” said Burwell. “Because of the lack of dialogue and the lack of sound effects in Rose’s section, we presented it as a silent film, with wall-to-wall music. I don’t believe there’s ever a moment where we actually go completely silent. That was a new challenge for me.”
