Some interviews with Howard in regards to the music he had to score for the Lord of the Rings movies. Huge undertaking and wonderfully epic, a great look at what it took to score so much music.

2001 FotR Interview

Two Towers Interview

2003 RotK Interview

And here is a running blog on the music of LOTR, not run by Howard but its a good overarching source for all things concerning the music Smile also if you want to see the music in concert this keeps track of dates!

A short interview back in September of 08 about Howard's work on the Hobbit score, not given too much detail since it is just begun at that point, but still interesting Smile

looks like it was taken from a longer video...but here is a short clip of Howard as he talks a little about needing to write more music for LOTR then a quick look at the scoring session...kind of random, but its still cool to hear the opening notes of the concerning hobbits track Very Happy

Here's an article talking about Howard Shore being signed on to compose for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse due out this June.

Howard Shore to compose Eclipse

I have to say I'm pretty stoked about this! I for one loved Burwell's score and Desplat did a pretty good job with New Moon. I can't wait to hear the epic-ness Shore will come up with for Eclipse!

CARPENTIER AND ALFRED MUSIC PUBLISHING ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF
THE MUSIC OF THE LORD OF THE RINGS FILMS
BY DOUG ADAMS

In-Depth Journey into Howard Shore’s Academy Award®-Winning Score

(July, 28, 2010—New York, NY) Carpentier and Alfred Music Publishing are pleased to announce the release of The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films, a comprehensive account of Howard Shore’s score for the trilogy, by Doug Adams. The book will be available in the European Union on September 28 and in the U.S. and worldwide on October 5, 2010.

The culmination of almost a decade of writing and research, The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films is an unprecedented look at Howard Shore’s Academy Award®-winning score, with extensive music examples, original manuscript scores, a rarities CD, and glimpses into the creative process from the composer, himself.

The 416-page full-color volume features a Foreword by Howard Shore, an Introduction by The Lord of the Rings screenwriter/producer Fran Walsh, original sketches by John Howe and Alan Lee, and numerous images from the films. Also included in the book, courtesy of Howe Records, is “The Lord of the Rings: The Rarities Archive” a CD presenting 21 tracks of previously unreleased music created for the films, and an audio interview with Howard Shore.

The score for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy has been hailed as some of the greatest film music ever written. Sweeping in scope, it is a musical interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth—an operatic tapestry of cultures, histories, languages, and people.

“Howard Shore’s [LOTR] music has touched millions of people the world over,” said Adams. “It’s been my great pleasure to assemble a piece that chronicles the creation of this music, and examines exactly how it tells this classic story.”

“Doug was a detective uncovering clues, tracing how one theme or character related to another,” said Shore. “He not only shows the themes and motifs for characters, cultures, objects, and their connection to Tolkien’s work, but also the ideas that were sometimes buried deep inside the writing.”

“Researching Shore’s music has been a true adventure,” described Adams. “His work is every bit as intricate and passionate as Tolkien’s Middle-earth.”

Doug Adams, a Chicago-based author and musicologist, was invited in 2001 by Howard Shore to observe and document his work on Peter Jackson’s motion picture trilogy. Adams attended recording sessions, examined the original scores, and was given complete access to the composer’s archives. As an acknowledged authority on Howard Shore’s music, Adams has become a regular fixture at concerts and events across the globe. He runs the popular blog, www.musicoflotr.com, which documents his work on this project and brings fans together in ongoing discussions.

September 27 Book signing and Q&A with Howard Shore and Doug Adams (Chappell of Bond Street, 152-160 Wardour St. London,UK)
