Carter Burwell talks about preparing 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' piano scene
Over the course of a 28-year career, the film composer and Amagansett resident has written music for more than 75 feature-length films including “Twilight” and nearly every film ever made by the Coen Brothers.
At what point in the filming process will you come onboard? Is the film usually finished by the time you see it and set the score?
Generally, I don’t actually write anything until a film has actually been shot. But, there are some exceptions.
In the movie I’m working on right now, which is “Breaking Dawn: Part II,” they needed Rob Pattinson and the actress who plays his daughter to play piano onscreen. I had to write this duet before they shot the film so they could actually learn the parts. Rob is a musician, so he prides himself on working out the fingering for these correctly.
Burwell confirmed the fact that Pattinson would be playing the music on-screen for Part 2 last February, when blogged about finishing "Renesmee's Lullaby."
Carter Burwell was, of course, the composer for Twilight in 2008, so he was responsible for creating "Bella's Lullaby" for that film - a piece which was also performed by Pattinson on camera for the film.
*Carter Burwell gives an Artist talk at the Ross School’s Senior Building Lecture Hall (18 Goodfriend Drive, East Hampton) on Friday, January 20 at 7 p.m. A screening of the film “Twilight” will follow.*
