Music For 3:10 To Yuma

11 12 2007

There’s a great piece on Marco Beltrami and his score to this James Mangold film up at the Lion’s Gate web site for the film.

He and Mangold talk about the value of silence as well as music during crucial scenes.

I’ve been working on a book about shaping storytelling and this makes complete sense to me. As editors know, if every scene has a high pumping energy, then nothing feels like high pumped energy. If every scene is sad, then no scene is sad.

Thanks to folks over at Film Sound Daily for calling my attention to this piece.
