Meet the composer for Eclipse


Via the Twilight Examiner
, we’ve learned about the composer for Eclipse:

According to MovieScore Magazine, Eclipse‘s composer will be Howard Shore.

Shore has served as the composer for dozens and dozens of films, including (but most definitely not limited to) The Fly, Big, The Silence Of The Lambs, Single White Female, Prelude To A Kiss, Sliver, Mrs. Doubtfire, The Client, Ed Wood, Se7en, Philadelphia, Crash, That Thing You Do!, High Fidelity, Dogma, Panic Room, The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring, The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers, The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King, The Aviator, The Departed, A History Of Violence, Doubt, Eastern Promises, and, most recently, Edge Of Darkness.

Shore has also won three Oscars and received dozens of further accolades for his work. He follows as the third composer in the Twilight series (behind Carter Burwell for Twilight and Alexandre Desplat for The Twilight Saga: New Moon).

See the rest here.

I think this is a GREAT pick … his music is so cinematic in scope, and I think it will be a great fit for Eclipse.

  1. OMG, I *love* “The Lord of the Rings” soundtracks! They’re so haunting and beautiful, and capture the moods of each sequence so perfectly. Oh, that makes me so excited to see what he composes for “Eclipse”!

  2. Fascinating that he did the score for Kristen’s first movie…
