If there has been one thing equally fantastic about each and every single film from the mind of Terrence Malick, it is his brilliant collaborations with his composers. Ranging from Ennio Morricone to Alexandre Desplat, Malick has been able to nab some of the greatest composers of their respective days, and now, he may have struck gold once again.
With the film bowing at TIFF in a matter of weeks (as well as Venice), Malick’s new film To The Wonder has finally found a composer, n the form of Hanan Townshend. Not at all the name one would expect to find next to others like Hans Zimmer and James Horner, Townshend is an odd but intriguing choice to score the film, and he’s not new to Malick’s world, as he did actually have a track featured within the soundtrack to Malick’s last feature.
I myself am not overly familiar with Townshend’s work, but this is definitely the way to introduce the world to a composer. His work on Tree of Life was solid, so with such a quick turnaround between films, this should be one of 2012’s most interesting pieces, if not it’s most anticipated.
