Filmtracks: Elliot Goldenthal (1698 words)
In May 1954, Elliot Goldenthal was born in Brooklyn, New York, and as a child he studied piano.
Arguably Goldenthal's most acclaimed project is 1996's "Fire Paper Water," an oratorio commissioned by the Pacific Symphony Orchestra in honor of the 20th anniversary of the Vietnam War; the Sony Classical recording of the piece featured soloist Yo-Yo Ma.
After reuniting with Taymor on a limited New York stage adaptation of the Carlo Gozzi fable, "The Green Bird," Goldenthal was commissioned in 1997 by the American Ballet Theatre to compose a ballet inspired by Shakespeare's "Othello." It debuted at the Metropolitan Opera that year and was eventually released on DVD in 2003.
"JULIE TAYMOR AND ELLIOT GOLDENTHAL: United in Their Love of the Outsider," by Don Shewey (1490 words)
Goldenthal's scores for other movies; the idea was to approximate the rhythms and emotional tone that she wanted for each scene requiring music.
Goldenthal said, "I wanted to compose music that could be played by the number of musicians who could fit in the room, as if they're serenading her.
Goldenthal's melodic, guitar-based score is tuned to the intimacy of the characters' emotions rather than to the drive of the story's events.
