MTV interview with Shore on ‘The Hobbit’
MTV recently interviewed composer Howard Shore about his involvement in Guillermo del Toro’s and Peter Jackson’s Hobbit prequels to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Shore confirmed that he has indeed started composing – as was the case with Lord of the Rings, a lot of the musical elements is being sketched out even before there is any footage available. Right now, according to Shore, much of the focus is on the on-screen source music that needs to be created for the films. About scoring The Hobbit as a part of a larger piece of art and referncing music that has already been established in the trilogy, Shore said: “Certain things will have to be referenced really, possibly in a more simple way, a less complicated way. So that you feel that The Hobbit is a part of this [larger] story.”
