Mychael&Jeff Danna's The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus
25-Jan-2010 - Silva Screen Records and Lions Gate Records have released the score for The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus. Director Terry Gilliams’ Worlds of candy canes, mile high ladders, giant cobras come and go and transform into other wonders. To underline the dream-like states and fantastical elements of Gilliam’s cinematography, Jeff and Mychael Danna produced a breathtaking and surprising post-modern score. Tangos, Waltzes, Tibetan monastic chant, Mediaeval Music and a greasy noir-ish saxophone tune for Tom Wait's characterization of Satan all mix together with a full orchestra and a couple of show-stopping songs. The brothers last collaborated with Terry Gilliam on his 2005 film Tideland. “In writing the score for Terry Gilliam’s Doctor Parnassus we sought to create music as timeless and archaic as the immortal Doctor himself,” says Mychael Danna. The score is performed by the Budapest Film Orchestra and conducted by Nicholas Dodd.
