We're happy to announce that Chris' acclaimed music to the Disney short "Paperman" has officially been released on iTunes! Click here to check out the single.
The buzz is building for Disney's latest animated short "Paperman", which Beck scored and will be premiering in front of "Wreck-It Ralph", starting November 2nd. Sound clips available soon!
"Symphony of Hope" will be performed LIVE as a part of the Grand Performances "Music, Movement, and Meaning" program in downtown Los Angeles.
“Symphony of Hope” is a musical fundraising project which was originally designed to help the people of Haiti in their desperate time of need. A year after the terrible earthquake which has destroyed the lives of thousands of Haitians, the need for assistance is even greater than ever. “Symphony of Hope” is a collaboration by 25 of today’s leading Oscar, Tony, Grammy and Emmy winning composers to benefit Haiti Earthquake Relief. The “Symphony of Hope” begins with an original Haitian melody, then each composer contributes an additional 8-32 bars of music to the piece and then passes it along to the next composer. This is symbolic in the way that one lending hand passes on to another lending hand and so on and eventually a beautiful outcome is achieved.
In preparation for Oscar Sunday, ABC News is airing small segments on different aspects of the film making process. They came to Beck's studio to discuss the music side of movie magic.
Christophe is featured this week in Variety's special edition "The Billion Dollar Composer". Variety's Jon Burlingame profiles Christophe on everything from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to this year's upcoming releases of Tower Heist and The Muppets.
