adlı resmi bir sayfa var facebook'ta. bu ay bond soundtracklerinin üzerine yoğunlaşılacağı söylenmişti, öyle de oldu. bu arada david arnold'la da bir soru-cevap yapmışlar.
david arnold answers your questions
we asked you for your questions for david arnold. we chose the best ones and put them to the bond composer...
q travis mcclain: are there any specific instruments you try to find a way to use in your scores? ıf so, what are they and where would we notice where you've sneaked them in?
a david arnold: ı love the sounds of deep low strings... cellos, low violas and low violins... it’s a velvety rich dark sound, and alongside dark trombone chords and french horns gives you that foreboding but sensual bond sound. ı also love the sound of harp and alto flute. most notably, all of these sounds are in "night at the opera" from quantum of solace
. the flute/harp combination is something john barry
made famous in his work for the bond films that he scored.
q ricardo elorza bobadilla: what turns any score into a bond movie score beyond the use of the theme here and there? thank you.
a david arnold: you'll get a million different answers to this question... but for me it's a sense of danger, mystery, an undercurrent of violence and a slightly perverse sense of romanticism. to represent those elements in a musical form should get you close to the sound of a bond score.
q sebastian johnson: what was your favourite scene to score?
a david arnold: ı liked the scene between bond and elektra (in the world ıs not enough
) when they're in the bedroom and being tender with each other... probably because ı liked the theme ı came up with for her and it played well in this scene. “a night at the opera” from qos and “surrender” from tomorrow never dıes
q matthew soberman: not counting your own, what's your favourite bond theme?
a david arnold: on her majesty's secret servıce
q andres quiroga: what made you approach chris cornell
for the song "you know my name
"? that was a match made in heaven.
a david arnold: we wanted a singer who sounded like daniel craig
looked and moved. chris has the power, grit and, when needed, sensitivity to welcome the audience into the world of casıno royale
q richard grant: what piece of music that you wrote for the bond series are you proudest of?
a david arnold: ı like quite a lot of cues over the years, it's difficult to say which is a favourite... but ı suppose as it was the theme that got me in to the eon/bond family in the first place... ı'll go for "surrender" from tomorrow never dıes.
q juha mäkinen: who is you favourite composer, in other words a "hero to you"?
a david arnold: john barry... who else????
ayrıca sonradan şöyle bir bilgi daha paylaşılmış.
composer david arnold faced a challenge with the score for casıno royale as ‘the james bond theme
’ wasn’t to be played until the end credits. arnold co-wrote ‘you know my name’ with former soundgarden frontman chris cornell (who also sang the song). “when we start the movie bond isn’t that person yet. he isn’t the totally confident, swaggering person that he will become,” says arnold.
the james bond theme'in neden başta çalmadığını filmi izleyenler anlamıştır zaten, ama ilk etapta bunu düşünerek müziğin kurgulanması muhteşem.
işini çok iyi yapan adam.
