In Person: David Arnold


90 min

SAT 24 June 13:15

Filmhouse 1

PRICE: £12.00 (£8.00 concs)

Scoring his first feature film The Young Americans in 1993, which included Björk’s breakout hit Play Dead, award-winning composer David Arnold is responsible for the lavish scores for five of the most recent James Bond films, including Die Another Day and Casino Royale. Writing music for Independence Day, Godzilla and Hot Fuzz, Arnold also provided the scores for Little Britain and Sherlock, and worked with Danny Boyle as Musical Director for the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony. We are thrilled to welcome David Arnold to Edinburgh to discuss his myriad accomplishments and collaborations; perhaps with some impromptu live musical accompaniment! [U]

I used to listen to his Independence Day and Stargate scores long before David Arnold came to Bond.  And Godzilla, horrid movie that it is, actually sports a nice big bombastic score which was impossible to get until a comprehensive 3 CD set came out a few years ago.  I wish one of the comic book powerhouses would throw some work his way.  It might even entice me to see a Transformers movie.  :D
