"Eric..Re' Writing Music For Films"!


Recommended Posts

Very very cool. Carly paints it as tough to fit a song to a film Kenny, was in a zone for awhile with soundtracks, and I heard him say, live in concert, that for him soundtracks were easier. He grew up about 30 minutes from Seattle. To paraphrase (I think this is EC's process too) you come up with melodies, they can be ballads or uptempo,works either way, am I writing for Wallly's guitar or to make people cry in the middle of a movie. Kenny said they hand you the song on a silver platter, motive, emotion, tempo, and you simply fit the melodies already in your head to what they want, and get busy on writing/adjusting thematic lyrics.

ABM was used in the "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" trailer but wasn't in the movie...will it be on the soundtrack album? My son said the movie was hilarous but I doubt the soundtrack could get anywhere near Footloose and Dirty Dancing sales.
