Glasgow 5—7 Apr.

Question: What have the films 0 Brother Where Art Thou?, Being John Malkovich and Rob Roy got in common? Answer: Carter Burwell composed their soundtracks. His first score was for the Coen broth- ers' 1984 debut Blood Simple, and he’s provided the tunes for their films ever since. Burwell’s coming to Glasgow to speak at The School Of Sound, the fourth in a series of

high profile international sympo- siums examining the relationship between sound and vision in film.

When I phone him in his home city, New York, Burwell’s applying the fin- ishing touches to the Coens’ next film, working title: The Barber Project. ‘Half of it is made up of Beethoven piano sonatas, half is scores I’ve writ- ten for piano and strings,’ he says. ‘It’s introspective; not unusual for Coen

brothers’ films.’

What does the picture sound like?

What will Burwell deliver at the Glasgow event? ‘l’ll be showing clips from films before and after the music has been written for them,’ he says, ‘and show different musical approaches that were tried and rejected. 80 people have a sense of what the process is like, and what my criteria is for what makes a successful theme or cue in a film. I won’t use musical language, that’s so specialised. I’ll discuss music in the way I talk with directors, in terms of drama and emotion.’

Burwell’s going to be in good company. The symposium’s impressive roster includes filmmaker Nic Roeg, Atom Egoyan’s composer of choice Mychael Danna, jazz specialist Dick Fontaine and Peter Greenaway collab- orator Louis Andriessen, among others. Go treat your ears.
