Music to our ears: A little news about THE LIBERTINE

The Times Online reports that Michael Nyman, the composer of THE LIBERTINE’s musical score, spent the afternoon of his 61st birthday, March 23rd, working on the film. According to the Times, Nyman passed his birthday afternoon “in a studio in Barnes, recording the soundtrack for the film THE LIBERTINE, which stars Johnny Depp.” This is good news for Depp fans; since THE LIBERTINE was fully scored when it showed as a work-in-progress at the Toronto Film Festival last September, Mr. Nyman would only need to return to the studio if a re-edited version of THE LIBERTINE were now ready to have music added. That work on the film is continuing suggests a strong commitment to THE LIBERTINE’s eventual theatrical release, an event we all are eagerly awaiting. Thanks to Gilbert’s Girl for spotting the story and posting it on the News & Views forum. The Zone wishes a belated happy birthday to Michael Nyman; we hope to hear your music drifting over us in movie theaters before the year is over.
