JOKER SOUNDTRACK

WaterTower Music has announced the digital release of the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to Todd Phillips' film Joker, which centers around the director/co-writer/producer's original vision of the infamous villain, indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix.

The Joker soundtrack album features an original score by composer Hildur Guonadottir, whose composition features the cello as the centerpiece of the score, leading string-based melodies played by a symphony orchestra of 90 musicians. WaterTower Music will release the picture disc and colored vinyl editions of the soundtrack on Dec. 13.

To interpret the many themes explored throughout the film, director Todd Phillips very early on turned to the composer. "Hildur was writing music as far back as pre-production. I was sending her script pages and she was writing music before we even shot, and what she did for the film is so unique," Phillips said.

Guonadottir said, "Todd asked me to write some music based on my feelings from reading the script, which I was inspired to do because it truly resonated with me."

She sent him a sample and recalled, "The film is a gritty character study, which to me translated to melodies that are very simple and monotonic, because thatfs kind of the way Joaquin's character Arthur is seeing things. Then I tried to expand within that simplicity the orchestration around Joker's evolution not with chords or any complicated music, but with texture that I felt resonated with the melancholia of this character."
