Howard Shore and the LOTR score

April 15, 2001 at 1:44 am by Tehanu  - 

The soundtrack is still being recorded in the next few weeks by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra – those rumours come from a few directions including the players, who know they have the time blocked out in their schedules for that gig. No more details than that have reached me.

More intriguing, somebody told me that there is a group of composers in Wellington called ‘Plan 9’ – mostly members of the group Six Volts – who is in some way involved with Shore and the score. My contact said that sometimes large film scores use a number of collaborators to fill out the details once the main themes and orchestration are set up by the ‘name’ composer. Not every Hollywood composer does this, and some do more than others. We didn’t have any information on how Shore works, but we had some speculation that the Plan 9 composers are involved with setting Tolkien’s songs to music.
