Film scoring career[ edit ] At first, Newman was more interested in musical theater than in film composition, working with Sondheim in Broadway plays. Newman said that he thought "it was a tough job, at first" for requiring him to "develop vocabularies and a sense of procedure", only getting comfortable with writing scores "and not fraudulent in my efforts" after 8 years. InNewman composed the score to Sam Mendes ' first feature film American Beautycreated using mainly percussion instruments.
Newman believed the score helped move the film along without disturbing the "moral ambiguity" of the script, saying "It was a real delicate balancing act in terms of what music worked to preserve that.

Newman received two Oscar nominations: He was nominated in the Original Score category with two other veteran composers, James Newton-Howard and Danny Elfmanboth of whom have also been nominated for several Oscars but each time unsuccessfully.
He also scored the 23rd James Bond movie Skyfalldirected by his longtime collaborator Sam Mendes, which celebrates the film franchise's 50th anniversary.
Thomas Newman is known for his piano solos and he never disappoints in this category. This theme is gorgeous. I don't use that word a lot when it comes to music.
Some is pretty, some beautiful, rarely is music gorgeous. Thomas Newman has a set chord progression he sticks to, like Williams' 7th in his early years. My wife is a Flutist and the solo flute in this track weaves nicely as a prelude to the strings.
Listen to Meet Joe Black (Soundtrack) now.
There are two very distinct sections to this track. I am a fan of the former more than the latter. Ever have one of those moments where you wanted to say something to someone and then you don't and regret it? Now picture two people doing this but missing each other when they turn around to say it. Life is too short.
I love a good French Horn solo but adore a full, dark French Horn call. No spoilers for what happens in the film, it works a little weird for what it intends vs what should've happened but this score ends like most Thomas Newman scores of the 80's and 90's, with a boisterous finale.
I do not own any copyright music from Meet Joe Black, just ownership of this suite. I purchased this score from a Hastings the day after I watched the film one time. That's all it took. It was April in Russellville, Arkansas.
There are a total of 20 tracks on the album and I only used score from 8 of them.
This is my favorite score from Thomas Newman and my favorite film from Martin Brest. Also my favorite film with Brad Pitt. As always, comments are welcome and encouraged. Our kids give us great inspiration for our music.
When Jon's year-old daughter said how much she loved this song, Jon decided to try it. He experienced a flood of inspiration.

Never has a piano part come together this fast, Jon says. Steve experienced similar inspiration while composing the cello parts.

Since the lyrics suggest a bride walking towards the groom in a ceremony we thought we would include a quote from the Bridal Chorus by Wagner in the climax of the song. It is carefully disguised. As it seems to always go, Paul and Tel didn't find the spot until they spent 9 hours driving around southern Utah the day before the shoot looking. After getting a little discouraged by not finding anything that great, they just happened to check out a little-hidden spot right near Baker Dam and thought it was perfect for the song.
The next morning we all loaded up the piano and headed out there to film, but after getting the Truck and Trailer stuck and waiting for the sun to move, we didn't get started filming until that evening having about 3 hours of light.
It was so fun to film and play in the middle of the trees! A Thousand Years - Christina Perri: Original Motion Picture Score' and the bag That track is similar to this one, but it plays at the end of the film. It was one of those days, when it's a minute away from snowing, and there's this electricity in the air.
You can almost hear it, right? And this bag was just dancing with me, like a little kid begging me to play with it, for fifteen minutes.
That's the day I realized there was this entire life behind things, and this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know, but it helps me remember.
I need to remember.
