Listen to the scores from ‘Changeling’ and ‘Frost/Nixon’

Posted by · 8:30 am · October 4th, 2008

Fresh on the heels of Paramount Vantage’s annual Vantage Guilds unveiling, Universal Pictures has launched its For Your Consideration site this season.  The five films featured are “Changeling,” “Flash of Genius,” “Frost/Nixon,” “Mamma Mia!” and “The Tale of Despereaux.”  Currently you can check out portions of the  scores from “Changeling” and “Frost/Nixon.”

By the way, Vantage has added some more content since we first pointed toward Vantage Guilds on Thursday.  Stills and a screenplay for “Defiance” and “The Duchess,” as well as score samples for the latter to go along with a behind-the-scenes featurette.  Nothing much for “Revolutionary Road” yet, though this pic is new to me:

By the way, I’ve been told the poster for “Revolutionary Road” that dropped a few weeks back is indeed a teaser and that a final one-sheet is still to come.  Looking forward to that.

    Guess this makes Zimmer another contender right?

    Oh and add Eastwood for the music too. The End Credit track reveals probably the meat of the score, which is great. Clint is such a complete artist.

    I doubt the notoriously insular Music branch would ever nominate Eastwood.

    I must admit, I’m not entirely sold on his work as a composer — his scores are always delicate and immaculately tasteful, but I can’t help thinking turning over the job to another composer would result in more striking work. (Thomas Newman would be a good fit for his films, I think.)

    Eastwood’s scores are adequate but never striking. I still wonder why he writes them (ego? economy?). Zimmer’s work on Frost/Nixon sounds surprisingly fresh for him, with his grinding and pounding taking a back seat.
