Carter Burwell - "Carol: Opening Theme"
Carter Benedict Burwell is an American composer of Film Scores, whom in my opinion, has never been given his due credit. His scores are intense and delicate and able to lure in the listener without them knowing what is being done.
He has frequently collaborated with the Coen brothers, having scored 15 of their films. Burwell has scored three of Todd Haynes' films, receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Score for Haynes' Carol (2015). He has also scored all the films of director Martin McDonagh with In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Other notable films scores include the Spike Jonze films Being John Malkovich (1999), Adaptation (2002) and Where the Wild Things Are (2009), David O. Russell's Three Kings (1999), Olive Kitteridge (2014) and Anomalisa (2015).
He's got a type of meditative symphonic melody that makes the listener think of their own lives and connect subconsciously to the lives and stories they see onscreen. He is a musician, a magician, a oracle that can see the raw elements of a film and weave them together in melody.
So today, standing out in the crowd, I choose Carter Burwell's "Carol: Opening Theme" as my, dare to be different, you're the only you I know, open up to change, song for a, walk into the wild unknown, you've got the magic in you, lift, Friday.
