It’s the end of December, which means we’re knee-deep in the annual awards season. The nominations for the Golden Globe Awards came out earlier this week, and the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards nominees were announced this morning. Though the Academy Award nominations won’t be announced until February 2, the Oscars have sent out the list of the 63 original songs from films that will be eligible for a nomination in the Best Original Song category. There are a handful of soundtrack tunes from blockbusters (like Linkin Park’s “New Divide,” from “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”), plenty of foreign fare and a ton of Miley Cyrus tracks.

But there’s one song that really stands out: Lykke Li’s “Possibility,” which comes from the soundtrack to “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.” The moody piece is one of the standouts from the excellent soundtrack (which also features Death Cab for Cutie, Thom Yorke and Muse) and could be the best shot that “New Moon” has at Oscar gold.

Chris Weitz and Alexandre Desplat Share Musical Secrets

14345_164562615673_8526405673_2795718_4264547_n

“The Official Twilight Facebook page and Twilight Source were on hand to experience two panels devoted to a behind the scenes look into the making and popularity of the series’ soundtrack and instrumental score. The first discussion involved Alexandra Patsavas (Chop Shop Music), Livia Tortella ( Marketing, Atlantic Records) and Paul Katz ( Music Consultant, Summit Entertainment, LLC.) These “masterminds” behind the multi-million selling soundtrack to “Twilight” discussed how exactly they put together the newest ensemble of songs for the film’s sequel, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.” Production of the soundtrack started back in December of ‘08, which gave the team roughly 8 months to put together another best-selling product. The main priority for this soundtrack was that the group wanted to find artists who would embody the “Twilight” culture, work with the franchise and bring everything they have back to the fans. Paramore did it with “Twilight” and the likes of Death Cab for Cutie, Thom Yorke, Lykke Li complete that notion with “New Moon.” Patsavas and Tortella also commented that with “Twilight” they did the artist and band searching, but this time around there were so many offers from mainstream bands to “Twilight-inspired” artists. Twenty CD’s worth of material were submitted by artists for consideration to be a part of the project. The producers worked with Chris Weitz, the film’s director and the bands/artists up for feature on the soundtrack with showing them certain scenes and then asked them to write a specific song to coincide with that emotion. With this, the music producers felt it would bring more of a personal aspect to the song because the song was truly designed to encompass the range of action and emotion in a scene. According to Patsavas, “the reason why the music on this (soundtrack) fits so well is because Chris Weitz sat down with the artists telling them how he would like the scenes to feel.”

RS Magazine Review: New Moon OST

b7a6322d82e4

Rolling Stone Magazine has a pretty neat review of the NM OST. First time I ever agree completely:

 

The genius of the Twilight saga is the way it celebrates the passion of the all-American fang hag, with Robert Pattinson as the perfect plasma-slurping pinup boy: He’s hot, he’s sexy, and he’s undead. So New Moon is a movie soundtrack, but it’s also a concept album about the bond between teenage girls and their imaginary bloodsucker boyfriends.

HisGoldenEyes Exclusive Interview with Hurricane Bells

his golden eyes had an exclusive interview with hurricane bells

15fkk28

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

here it is

We had a great opportunity to interview Steve Schiltz, the member of the one man band Hurricane Bells and the artist of Monsters on the New Moon Soundtrack!

1. We’re just going start with the most basic question fans usually want to know. Did you ever heard about or perhaps even read the series before you became involved with the Saga? If so, what was your first encounter with the twilight world?

i really was pretty unaware. i had heard of “twilight”, but i had never read any of the books or seen the movie. i found out about my song being selected for the soundtrack, and my friend gave me the first two books and said, “you need to read these”. i am halfway through “new moon” now.

2. As you probably have guessed by now, the twilight fandom is pretty intense (in the best possible way). Have things changed for you at all after track listing came out?

a little bit, yep! i have a record called “tonight is the ghost” that i have been planning to put out, and the soundtrack has changed those plans…i think we may release it sooner now, and perhaps with a real label, as opposed to my putting it out myself. so it’s very exciting.

3. The soundtrack for the first album was very successful. An anomaly in the music business, if you will. How did you get involved with the New Moon soundtrack? Were you contacted by the music director or did you directly pursue the project?

well i have a publisher that pitches songs of mine for me. it was basically done through them. i am not sure how much work went into getting it done. i don’t like to know about those things until they are certain….it can be heartbreaking otherwise, if things don’t actually happen.

but i do know that a lot of people i know were also trying to get songs into the movie, as well…

4. As for the song itself, is there anything you can tell us about it? For example, was it written exclusively for the movie or if you were inspired by certain characters, relationships etc.

no, i had it sitting around for awhile. i left it off of my record because i didn’t feel like it fit somehow. the song is a kinda catchy, up feeling song with some darker lyrics. there is a lot of fuzzed out guitar, and a pretty ripping guitar solo. it was only after i thought about it a bit that i could see how it might fit into the movie.

another thing about it was that i recorded it myself, in my band rehearsal room and my apartment. i mixed it in my friend’s basement. so there were no big studios, and no one else involved except me. no record label. i played all of the instruments, it was like an obsession. so it is pretty amazing to me now that it sits on a record alongside the killers and thom yorke, etc.

5. Were you inspired by anything non-twilight related for the song?

hmm, i just liked the idea of the words, some downer words with this happy little melody.

6. Could you give us a little teaser of the lyrics to your song?

sure, the main line is, “wait, you gotta look before you go, deep into the darkness where i hide”. the song is called “monsters”.
