They just asked me to work on it, and that was pretty much it. It really was as simple as that.
No, I actually did some pretty thorough research. I like to read a lot, and I
knew the story. I was really interested in it from a dramatic point of
view. And I felt that the story expands with the third film. I did the
research and fell into a very interesting creative process. It was a
pleasure to work on.
And I found both guys’ scores to be very good. Carter’s was such a good score, and Alexandre’s was just beautiful.
How was the experience tracking for songs through ECLIPSE?
I worked with Emily Haines and James Shaw of the group Metric, and Metric was a group that I had researched
and felt that they would be good collaborators for this project. I asked
them if they would be interested in writing with me, and the three of
us created the song “Eclipse (All Yours).” I actually like the
collaboration of working with different artists.
And that is something that you see less and less of in Hollywood. Back during the
heyday of James Bond, you would almost always see a composer co-write
the movie’s theme song.
Yes, yes! I enjoy that very much.( More... )
