  • Tom Twyker talks about The Perfume Soundtrack

    18 Jan 2008, 20:38 by AMusicAddict


    00:10 - Intro - Hollywood Reporter's contributing editor Jeff Bond interviews Tom Tykwer, the German director, writer, and composer of such works as, "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" and "Run, Lola, Run." Tykwer talks about the drastic differences a film composer can make in a film or TV project if they are involved early on in the production process and how and why his own history as a director and film composer for all his movies has created this stance.

    1:23 - Tykwer discusses composing the music for all of his films since the beginning of his film career and even for his first feature film, "Deadly Maria." Also, he explains why he wanted to join up with Reinhold Heil and Johnny Klimek, co-composers who have created original music scores for such films as "George A. Romero's Land of the Dead," and "One Hour Photo" and have created original music for the television series "Deadwood," among others.

    5. 25 Or 6 To 4 - Beginnings

    Comments: Not that bad... From these five Tykwer, who is also a movie director, is actually surprisingly good with music. Beginnings, that's a cover band, quite a good one too.

    Comments: I could easily drop Carly Simon out from this group, although that song is not that bad as pop music. Chris Cornell - that song of his is pretty close to the best Bond songs.

    I have a few friends that I know for listening to soundtracks a lot. I never was a big fan of them, though occasionally there would be one or two that I'd love. (Like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.) But now I think I'm really beginning to get into soundtracks on my own. Which I find a bit surprising for a band geek like myself. I wonder why it took me this long.

    The first for me would be when I saw Perfume way back at the beginning of January. I'd read the book the previous month and I did liked the movie, but was slightly disappointed at the same time. The one thing I did love though, was the soundtrack by Tom Tykwer. I found it very creepy and beautiful at the same time.

    The other one that I really really loved was Pan Labyrinths's soundtrack. I think Javier Navarrete's score to that film was amazing and was completely shocked he didn't get 'Best Score' at the Oscars. Oh well. All I know is that nearly two months after seeing the movie I still find myself humming that lullaby from time to time.
