Carter Burwell (born November 18, 1955, in New York City) is a composer of film scores. He graduated from King School in Stamford, Connecticut, and Harvard College.
As a film composer, Burwell has had a long working relationship with the Coen Brothers, providing music for every film they have made. He enjoys working with left-field directors and has also scored Spike Jonze's films. Among his best known non–Coen Brothers film scores are And the Band Played On (1993), Conspiracy Theory (1997), Hamlet (2000), The Spanish Prisoner (1997), Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007), and In Bruges (2008).
In April 2005, Burwell composed and conducted music, performed by The Parabola Ensemble, for the plays "Sawbones" written and directed by the Coen Brothers, "Hope Leaves the Theater" written and directed by Charlie Kaufman and "Anomalisa" written and directed by Francis Fregoli. This was a segment of the sound-only production Theater of the New Ear, which debuted at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn, NY with support from Sirius Satellite Radio, United Talent Agency and Sony Pictures.
He recently created a track called "Bella's Lullaby" for the film Twilight (2008). The soundtrack released on November 4, 2008.
Burwell married Christine Sciulli in 1999.
