The music, be it the score or the soundtrack, for a film is of critical importance.
You don't always realize how much thought and care goes into the songs and sounds that accompany scenes and sequences in a film. But the right music enhances, elevates and supports the action.
Out of the Furnace composer Dickon Hinchliffe (Tindersticks), director Scott Cooper and Relativity Music Group President Bob Bowen sat down for this incredibly informative interview about the music in the film, offering a keyhole view into the sounds of this film, reminding us just how important music is to our movies.
Cooper explains who and what he listened to, and he reveals that he truly thought about what his characters would listen to and what music they would relate to, as well as what songs would fit the narrative. So when you go to see this film, keep that in mind. Every sound was handpicked for a reason.
Clearly, Cooper is an artist that is truly connected to every element of his craft. Bowen asks Cooper some incredibly interesting questions throughout the interview. Along with Hinchliffe, they shed a lot of light on the process. It's intriguing and compelling stuff, especially for music fans.
The interview gives the viewer a real sense of how the score and the music supports the on screen action and the actor's performances.
