David Arnold James Bond Composer

 David  Arnold James Bond Composer


David Arnold composed, arranged and produced the score for Casino Royale, his fourth James Bond film, following Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day. As composer for Casino Royale, Arnold collaborated with Chris Cornell to write the title song “You Know My Name.”

Hailed as one of the most successful young British composers, Arnold began his film career making short films with fellow enthusiast Danny Cannon, teaching himself to write, orchestrate and compose the scores for their films. In 1993, he scored Cannon’s feature film debut The Young Americans, combining lush orchestration with Bjork’s vocals for the title song “Play Dead,” which earned critical and commercial success. This led to the offer to score Stargate, Roland Emmerich’s sci-fi film, which enjoyed box-office success and earned Arnold his first BMI Award.

Winner of seven BMI Awards for his music for Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Stargate, Independence Day, Godzilla and 2 Fast 2 Furious, he also won a Grammy for Independence Day and recently won the Royal Television Society Award for the title music of the UK comedy series “Little Britain.” In addition, he won the Ivor Novello Award for the music for The World Is Not Enough. He has been recognized by the film industry as a talented and diverse composer, arranger and producer, whose scores include Shaft, Changing Lanes, 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Stepford Wives and, most recently, Michael Apted’s Amazing Grace, Venus directed by Roger Michell, and Hot Fuzz directed by Edgar Wright.

A great piece of work by David Arnold. His first Bond soundtrack and he does a wonderful job. I really prefer the soundtrack to the movie itself. The theme song is just ok, "Surrender" is classic bond, "Backseat Driver" is my favorite track, "James Bond Theme" by Moby isn't that impressive, and the rest of the soundtrack is great, Arnold does a good job in bringing Bond back to his musical roots. Recommended.

Tomorrow Never Dies is the soundtrack of the 18th James Bond film of the same name.

David Arnold composed the score of Tomorrow Never Dies, his first full Bond soundtrack. Arnold came to the producer's attention due to his successful cover interpretations in Shaken and Stirred: The David Arnold James Bond Project — which featured major artists performing classic James Bond title songs.

The theme tune was chosen through a competitive process. There were approximately twelve submissions; including songs from Swan Lee, Pulp, Saint Etienne, Marc Almond, Sheryl Crow and David Arnold.[1] Arnold's entry--"Tomorrow Never Dies," sung by k.d. lang--a bold, brassy number in the classic John Barry/Shirley Bassey vein, was chosen as the official theme, and Arnold heavily incorporated elements of the song throughout the film's score. However, similar to the last-minute theme song switch that occurred with Thunderball three decades earlier, shortly before the film's release, the producers replaced Arnold and lang's theme with Sheryl Crow's, as Crow was a much bigger name at the time; Arnold's theme was re-titled "Surrender" and moved to the end credits. [2]

The score itself follows Barry's classical style in both composition and orchestration, together with modern electronic rhythms present in most cues. Because the title song was changed so close to the film's release date, there was no time to work Crow's melody into any of the score. As a result, melody patterns from "Surrender" appear prominently many times in the score, mainly in the action cues, but it can also be heard in the dramatic "All in a Day's Work" track.

The DVD version of the film has an "isolated music track" allowing the viewer to watch the film with just the background music.

Scoring of the film had not been completed when the soundtrack was released so on January 11, 2000 (2000-01-11) a second album was released by Chapter III Records which removed the theme songs, Moby's Bond theme remix and "Station Break", and had additional music, as well as an interview with David Arnold.[3]

3. Come in 007, your time is up 
4. Access denied 
5. M's confession 
6. Welcome to Baku 
7. Casino 
8. Ice bandits 
9. Elektra's theme 
10. Body double 
11. Going down - the bunker 
12. Pipeline 
13. Remember pleasure 
14. Caviar factory 
15. Torture queen 
16. I never miss 
17. Submarine 
18. Christmas in Turkey 
19. Only myself to blame (performed by Scott Walker) 

First off I want to say that David Arnold has done a magnificent job at capturing the spirit of 007 for the new millenium. His blend of traditional Bondian jazz blended in with techno is perfect. This is very similar to what John Barry did for THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS sountrack. Unlike Eric Serra (GOLDENEYE) he stays in familiar territory instead of going somewhere totally new and foriegn. As for Garbage's title track, WOW. This song also captures the spirit of the great title songs with excellent lyrics, vocales, and instrumentals.
The soundtrack album has one major flaw.... missing cues. While I was satified with the amount of coverage the soundtrack album had (unlike TOMORROW NEVER DIES which left out the entire second half of the film), I was upset that essentials like the gunbarrel cue and the entire end title track (which sounded awesome) did not make the CD. Someone needs to let the producers of these soundtrack albums to make the entire CD complete.

    Single releases

    • "Die Another Day" (Madonna) 
    • Comment: Actually the "The James Bond Theme - Bond Vs. Oakenfold" Music Video is included in the Bond Bonus Extras Section what means that these contents are not on the disc itself but only can be accessed via internet. Madonna's music video and the making of are directly included on the CD. They are available in mpg format and have an acceptable quality (of course still far from DVD quality). The pictures in the galleries are nice although they only have medium resolution (not watchable as full screen) what is a little bit a pitty for the posters as many details can not be seen.
