David Arnold Talks about Scoring ‘Dawn Treader’

There’s a new interview that David Arnold pointed out on his Twitter, where he chats with Classic FM about writing the score for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

The art of film composing is a curious thing. The music is vital to the movie, but it’s very often composed after the action has been filmed:
“Which ever way you do it, it is entirely solitary. It’s a peculiar thing, you kind of crave company to a certain extent because you do have to spend about 90 per cent of your day in a room by yourself, just with the image for company.”

    How interesting, particularly his comment on how much harder it is to write "light sparkly" music than dark music. Does anyone know if Mr. Arnold will have a speaking part in the movie, as Mr. Gregson-Williams did as Pattertwig?
