NEW YORK — Warner Music has tapped veteran producer Danny Bramson to run a newly created division, Warner Music Group Soundtracks, to consolidate the various soundtrack operations at the music giant’s constituent labels under one roof.
Bramson, who runs the soundtrack department at WMG flagship Warner Bros. Records, will now oversee soundtracks and other music for film and television projects for the major’s Atlantic, Elektra and Maverick divisions as well.
Exec will be based in WMG’s Burbank offices and report to Warner Strategic Marketing prexy Scott Pascucci.
“Soundtracks are not only an increasingly important source of revenue for the Music Group, but a critical component of cross-divisional initiatives within AOL Time Warner,” said Warner Music chief Roger Ames. “Danny’s reputation is simply unmatched in this field.”
Exec has produced a host of well-received soundtrack projects over the past several years, including music for the Cameron Crowe projects “Almost Famous,” “Jerry Maguire” and “Singles,” the second installment of the “Austin Powers” franchise and “Nutty Professor II: The Klumps.”
Over the past year, Bramson produced and/or exec produced three soundtracks — “A.I. Artificial Intelligence,” “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” and “Vanilla Sky” — that received Oscar nominations. He was also exec producer of “Vanilla Sky.”
