The Sunday Times: 'Bel Ami' Composer Shares All
The Sunday Times has an excellent interview with the man who created the music for Bel Ami. Composer Lakshman Joseph de Saram talks extensively about the process of writing the music that you will hear in the theater:
There are two visits to London, the first to meet the film’s two directors, Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, to discuss “the tone” the music should take. The second visit is to attend the recording sessions of Joseph de Saram’s film score. The orchestra is assembled at Angel Studios and is composed of members of leading British orchestras. Both experiences – meeting the directors, meeting the musicians playing his music – are cruel tests of nerve. The completed, much revised, score is ready by December 2010.
Don't miss the rest - The Sunday Times also spoke to the film's producer on what inspired him to make the film. Read it all at The Sunday Times. The soundtrack is now available for pre-order with a scheduled release date of March 20th.
