In retrospect: A year after ‘Tumbbad’, composer Jesper Kyd recalls his entry into Indian film

In retrospect: A year after ‘Tumbbad’, composer Jesper Kyd recalls his entry into Indian film | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

Remember Tumbbad? The beautifully shot, rain-drenched period horror film tells of Vinayak and Hastar, the forgotten son of the goddess of prosperity.

The film, directed by Rahi Anil Barve and Adesh Prasad was released last October and won many awards for cinematography, special effects and sound design. But the music by Jesper Kyd, most say, is pretty memorable too. Hailing from Denmark and based in Los Angeles, the composer and sound designer won a BAFTA (British Academy Film Award) Games Award in 2005 for Best Original Music for the Hitman: Contracts video game. Works such as this is what attracted a willing ear from India.

The significants of a composer who has been very successful.
Cay Rich's curator insight, November 17, 2019 11:01 PM
Jesper was a music designer that was extremely dedicated in his passion and creativity which turned out to be a major success. With his influencing team and hard work, he was able to put together a unique film that was on the top charts which to me is remarkable. The source that I got this information from stated that,”Jesper has been writing music everyday since he was 13 years old; he says the music industry and being a composer demands a vast amount of work ethic and creativity and with more projects coming out soon, he’s nowhere near slowing down”. This is a major informational resource for audio industry professionals to rely on because it shows the struggles, dedication, and success that comes with perfection in something you believe in and have a vision of success for.

Ludwig Göransson -  How The Mandalorian Composer Felt About Facing Automatic Comparisons To Star Wars' John Williams | Soundtrack | Scoop.it

The Mandalorian introduced a number of fresh elements into the Star Wars franchise, one of which was its impeccable score from composer Ludwig Göransson. Creating music is no easy task, especially when doing so for a franchise like Star Wars, which is known for its iconic beats. With this, it was inevitable that fans would compare and contrast his work with that of the great John Williams. But Göransson seems to be taking the comparisons in stride.

�Tonight we had planned to be sat beneath the big screen at the Royal Festival Hall, performing the score to Anthony Minghella’s multi-award winning romantic blockbuster, The English Patient. Music is at the centre of this passionate story, and the evocative score earned composer Gabriel Yared an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA and a Grammy Award.
