Conrad Pope, the orchestrator for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I soundtrack, has provided another update via his Facebook page. The score, which is composed by Alexandre Desplat, is due for release on November 16th. Recording began in September.
Back in L.A. after working on HP7 for Alexandre Desplat. The score adds a new dimension to Potter. Wish I could be more specific and share all my thoughts and news but I’ve promised the producers my silence until the picture is released. So, everyone with questions: please know they’ll be all answered soon enough. For me, it’s on to the next panic…. I mean project! (Actually HP was a delight, as these things go)
Last month, Pope also provided information regarding some of the themes we should expect in the score.
27 August: Working on Alexandre Desplat’s new score for the next “Potter”. Exciting, vigorous music! Harry flies, fights and conjures. All accompanied by the distinctive, definitely non-generic voice of Desplat. Those who love melodies, harmonies and emotions in their film scores should be pleased. Reminds one of the old days. Stay tuned.
24 September: Just finished the first week with the LSO of recording Alexandre Desplat’s score to “HP7”. Harry Potter now occupies a new musical universe. For Lovegood AD has written a charming, “groovin'” theme. Dobby, too, is given a new “voice”. The emotional music reaches its climax in Ron’s speech in the “wilderness” where the poetry of AD conveys the emotion in a single chord’s voicing. Stay tuned.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I will be released on November 19.
