LITTLE WHITE LIES
Little White Lies: Conductors Robert Ames and Hugh Brunt reveal how they helped bring Jonny Greenwood’s mesmerising score to Phantom Thread to life.
“Now is an exciting time for film composing, and the LCO have been central to this development over the last decade. But what has been the main factor in this trend? “It’s hard to pin the change in scores to one thing,” says Ames. “We spend most of our time performing live shows of really cutting-edge experimental music across genres. It’s really exciting to hear the sound world we inhabit becoming more and more part of mainstream film making. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Jed Kurzel, Mica Levi as well as composers such as Anne Nikitin, Paul Saunderson, Dan Mulhern and Ben Lovett. They have all really embraced the methodology of searching for new and interesting sound worlds which is what we live doing.”
