The “Twilight” Soundtrack Compilers Talk

A recent article from NME has revealed how the great new music is picked for each Twilight soundtrack.

Music supervisors Paul Katz and Alexandra Patsavas have claimed that choosing songs from big artists, plus smaller acts such as Fanfarlo and Bombay Bicycle Club, doesn’t stem from an attempt to cash in on bands’ cool factors.

“We have forward-thinking directors and they have a progressive music taste,” Patsavas said. “It’s completely natural.”

And some hints as to why they picked the music they did this time around:

Patsavas said an important factor was the tone of each scene. “This is the battle movie,” she said of Eclipse. “So there should be some conflict in the music, so we have a band like The Dead Weather there.”

The rest of the mini-article is here at NME, but you can buy the magazine now.
