David Arnold and team were back at Air Studios again this week to record the score for the forth-coming
‘Hot Fuzz’. Directed by Edgar Wright who also wrote the script with Simon Pegg the film stars just about everyone; Nick Frost, Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Martin Freeman, Bill Nighy, Steve Coogan, Anne Reid, Billie Whitelaw (last worked with Billie in the 90’s when she starred in Film Friends and The Cloning Of Joanna May – both for TV). A very very funny film from the team who gave us Shaun Of The Dead. The Gothic Choir on the soundtrack is nothing short of spectacular!
James Newton Howard flew into London to record his score for this Ed Zwick directed thriller staring Leonardo DiCaprio. The score is a wonderful mix of styles with a strong African flavour. We had a real treat when we recorded with The African Childrens Choir –http://www.africanchildrenschoir.com – who were just awesome.
It’s great to read all the fantastic reviews for this film. David has had some real belters for his score – all fully deserved. If you haven’t seen it on the big screen yet you really should.
EMI and Demon/MCI have both had meetings with Roger Woodhead over the last couple of weeks to discuss some new albums for next year. More detailed news next time. Sales continue to do well – so many thanks for your support.
Everything is calming down for the holiday season so it just leaves it for me to wish you all a Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year. See you in 2007 when we’ll be able to say more about a very exciting new project in New Zealand.
