From director Jay Russel’s official MySpace: Just a brief note to tell you how excited I am that I just signed James Newton Howard on to compose the score for “The Waterhorse.” I loved his scores for “The Sixth Sense” and “Signs.” I thought both pieces had a wonderful combination of tension and mysticism. Not the easiest musical feat to accomplish.
James Newton Howard is a favorite composer of mine. You’ll thank yourself if you buy any (ALL) of the following scores:
- The Sixth Sense
- The Village
- Lady in the Water
Even if you didn’t like the movie, the music is well worth the listen, and believe me, you’ll listen to it a lot. It is layered and complex, and beautifully poetic all at once.
