Carter Burwell Q&A for “Carol”November 14, 2015 at 10:29 am
New York-based composer Carter Burwell flew out to L.A. to talk about his score for director Todd Haynes’ new film Carol. We did an on-camera interview that is now on SoundWorks Collection, but Friday night we also did an audience Q&A after a screening sponsored by the Society of Composers & Lyricists. Burwell — who is well-known for his scores for many Coen Bros. films including Fargo, as well as two in the Twilight series — was, as always, thoughtful and articulate. The Carol score, written for a small ensemble including strings, piano, harp and a few woodwinds, may well be a contender in this year’s awards season.
