Craig Armsrong and A R Rahman

Both the composers are now feverishly working together in Galsgow (scotland) a Craig’s studio for the score of Golden Age. It’s fascinating to watch them interact. Two people with toally different backrounds and cultures. Because this is a predominently a western film, I am ecouraging Craig to lead it. But am looking to Rahman to inject some bold, ‘out there’ melodies and sounds into the score.

    Dear Shekhar,
    I agree with Vijay Iyer on this one. Please ensure that the music of these films is released in India and reaches the ears of fans like us who are thirsty for A R Rahman’s music!
    All the best!
    Love,
    Adi.

    Shekhar,
    I just saw the Elizabeth teaser trailer that was leaked online this week, and all I can say is “WOW, WOW, WOW!!!”
    The film literally looks extraordinary! The shots of the Spanish Armada were amazing, and Cate just looks absolutely stunning as Elizabeth again! I also thought the shot of her wearing full battle armor with her hair down on the horse was pretty darn cool.
    I don’t want to blow open too much more of the teaser trailer, since there are those on here who probably want to see an official release.
    Shekhar, you should be commended for creating what looks to be an amazing film. I am very excited over seeing the finished version of the film when it is released.

    I, too, have seen the teaser trailer, Shekhar. What’s amazing was a the amount of attention it got over the few hours that it was leaked online. Even after Universal had it removed, people are still talking about it, re-uploading it and viewing it over and over. The anticipation over this is quite intense.
    As for me, hearing Cate’s voice alone as Elizabeth gave me chills. It looks absolutely epic and I look forward to more trailers (longer next time) until its eventual release.

  12. jasmin says:

    hey Shekhar,
    i saw the trailer too, and i loved it,iam soooo excited to see it, I only wished the trailer was longer. I loved the shot of Elizabeth(Cate) on the world map at the end of the trailer it was sooooo beautiful.
    and you are right Putski, the trailer was available for less than a day, and the amount of attention it got was incredible, every message board I visited are still talking about, just look at Oscarwatch’s golden age thread it’s over 10 pages long.

    Shekhar, its majestic. Can’t wait for another 6 months. Cate is brilliant, surely another academy nomination to say the least. Great to see Clive Owen. BTW is that A R Rahman who has given the background score for the trailer?

  14. shekhar says:

    The music is what we call a ‘temp’ score. We have just finished recording the score, so hopefully the next trailer will have it. Thanx everybody, shekhar

  15. North says:

    I am disappointed to say, I did not see the trailer..
    But, after “Elizabeth” I anticipate with great hunger, TGA to become a classic duo… of all time!!
    Dear Shekhar, after this grande endeavour is completed.. what will be the first thing you aspire to do for yourself? Rest? Play? Another film? A book of your adventures?
    with loving kindness,
    North

    Dear Shekhar,
    I’ve seen the trailer several times now and every time I see it, I pick up another detail I missed the time before. Needless to say to me the trailer reflects ‘The Golden Age’ as a movie not to miss by any means.
    (Cate’s voice is really convincing, are you sure she’s really not Queen Elizabeth I?)
    Judy

  17. shekhar says:

    Judy, if history is interpretation (it is , is it not ?), then it seems to be that Cate Blanchette’s interpretation is the one that lives in the subconscious of the people most. In that case she is Elizabeth, I guess. Shekhar

    Dear Shekar,
    Is there a way to see the teaser trailer of the film whose music is believed to be by A.R.Rahman. Can anyone someone send me the trailer?

  19. UweB says:

    Wow Rahman and Armstrong together: AWESOME.
    Love their Work.

  20. DJL says:

    So who composed that temp score used in the original trailer?

  21. Bob says:

    Just saw the movie — outstanding!!! Well done and Cate was phenomenal again. I loved the music in the teaser trailer, but did not hear it during the movie — is it on the soundtrack to the movie or on a different album?
