Sounding Off: Burwell to finish what he started; composing BREAKING DAWN
The one thing that has stayed consistent throughout the three installments of the TWILIGHT saga so far (TWILIGHT, NEW MOON, and ECLIPSE) has been the principal cast (way to hang in there, Taylor) while the directors (Catherine Hardwicke, Chris Weitz, and David Slade) and composers (Carter Burwell, Alexandre Desplat, and Howard Shore) have changed as the story has evolved.
As the final segment of the series, BREAKING DAWN, is officially in production, it has been announced that Carter Burwell will be returning to the series to compose the score for the final two films (BREAKING DAWN PART 1 and 2).
I became a fan of Burwell’s work after seeing TWILIGHT and it was due largely in part of the score he created for that film that I became a fan of the series. One of the most highly anticipated moments in the first TWILIGHT film was the revealing of “Bella’s Lullaby” as written for her by vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson). Burwell created what became the underlying theme of the first film that carried through each the segments that followed, despite the fact that Burwell himself was not the composer on those films.
Both Desplat and Shore are amazing composers in their own right and created beautiful scores for both NEW MOON and ECLIPSE respectively, but I always felt Burwell was the heart the world of TWILIGHT and I am excited to have him back to complete the story.
