A new Jim Dooley Interview
The website Xanga.com has released an interview from Jim DOOLEY who speaks from his past, current and futur works. Extract...
Clark DOUGLAS: What do you have coming up in the not-too-distant future?
Jim DOOLEY: Well, I'm working on "The Da Vinci Code" with Hans Zimmer right now, that'll keep me busy until about March. I do have a video game I'm scoring from March to July, but I can't say which one that is, because it hasn't been announced yet. I have a German animation film which they'll be releasing in Europe in May. It's got some really interesting songs.
CD: For "The Da Vinci Code"... that's a storyline with a lot of varied and different elements involved. What sort of direction are you and Hans taking musically with that film?
JD: Hans has all ready... pardon the pun... cracked the code, so to speak. Before I came in to lift a finger, he'd written a 700-bar suite for this score, it's pretty breathtaking, my participation in this is not so much the upfront writer, but more the extension due to the slightly accelerated schedule of production, we've been scoring four weeks from yesterday, so it's pretty tight.

Zimmer, Harvey & Dooley to compose THE DA VINCI CODE
According to West One Music, British composer Richard Harvey has joined the music team on The Da Vinci Code, ?co-writing the music score? with Hans Zimmer. Harvey and Zimmer has worked together before on Beyond Rangoon. Also, James Michael Dooley is writing additional music for the film. Recordings of the music for is scheduled to take place at London?s Air Lyndhurst Hall this month. Hans Zimmer?s much anticipated original score for The Da Vinci Code will be released on CD by Decca Records on May, the 15th.
The score composed by James Newton Howard & Hans Zimmer is nominated for Best Score by the Academy of Science Fiction Fantasy & Horor Films(The Saturn Awards). Also nominated, John Williams for two scores (no, it's not Memoirs of a Geisha, no it's not Munich !) : War Of The World & Star Wars III ...And Patrick Doyle's Harry POTTER & the Goblet of Fire, Danny Elfman's Charlie & the Chocolate Factory & john Ottman's Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.
James Dooley got his foot in the door, in regards to film, television, and videogame composition, by becoming a protege of noted Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer. Under the tutelage of Zimmer Dooley worked as an additional composer, arranger, and orchestrator on several of Zimmer's film projects. Since then he's successfully branched out into the niche realm of composing music for theatrical trailers (he's crafted scores for the previews of Elf, Man on Fire, and King Arthur). > Read more...
decade after he left his native England for Los Angeles with little more than hand luggage, a visitor?s visa and but the vaguest of career prospects, Harry Gregson-Williams counts himself extremely fortunate to be amongst Hollywood?s most successful and in-demand film composers. Working from his sprawling new state-of-the-art scoring/recording complex just blocks from the Venice Beach boardwalk, Gregson-Williams has just completed director Andrew Adamson?s adaptation of author C. S. Lewis? The Chronicles of Narnia, and is already preparing to resume longstanding collaborations with directors Tony Scott and Joel Schumacher in 2006. > Read more...
