Check out this great feature over at Tracksounds:
Likely the most appreciated, analyzed, and awarded scores of the new millennium has been HOWARD SHORE’S epic, original score for Peter Jackson’s LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY. Years after the some of the most complete soundtrack releases ever, comes the lost awaited book and CD release, THE MUSIC OF THE LORD OF THE RINGS – A Comprehensive Account of Howard Shore’s Scores. This unique volume was researched, compiled and written by author DOUG ADAMS alongside Howard Shore and his creative team. The result is an even more detailed look at, not only the music, but it’s evolution.
Tracksounds is proud to bring you this in-depth look “behind the score” of The Lord of the Rings. In this edition:
– SoundCast Interview with author Doug Adams
– Book review by Peter Nickalls
