Composers

Below-the-Line Impact Report 2012

HARRY GREGSON-WILLIAMS

Gregson-Williams scored the remake of “Total Recall,” wrote a theme for “Prometheus,” created an ethnic sound for Andrew Adamson’s “Mister Pip” with Tim Finn, reunited with Aardman for “Arthur Christmas” and hit two genres on “Cowboys & Aliens.” “A Day in the Life,” his first doc score, offered challenges: In a documentary “it’s a fine line the composer will cross — if he crosses it at all — to tweak the emotions of the audience.”

 

 

JAMES NEWTON HOWARD

In 2012 alone this prolific composer has been the driving force behind the scores for “The Bourne Legacy.” “The Hunger Games” and “Snow White and the Huntsman.” As one of the most sought-after artists in Hollywood, his action scores are as anticipated as the films themselves. He has the ability to comple ment the tempo, tone and intensity of directors he works with. Up next: M. Night Shyamalan’s sci-fi thriller “After Earth,” starring Will Smith and his son, Jaden.

 

 

BRIAN TYLER

Tyler scored “Final Destination 5,” a film whose unseen enemy placed an unusual burden on the score, “Battle: Los Angeles” and “Fast Five,” his third score in that series. For television, he rounded up as many of the original “Hawaii Five-O” theme’s musicians as possible for the remake, and used a full orchestra on “Terra Nova.” Games work includes “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.” Coming up: “The Expendables 2,” the first time Tyler will write a sequel to a franchise where he scored the original.
