James Cameron's 'Avatar' Film to Feature Vocals From Singer Lisbeth Scott
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- "Avatar" Composer James Horner has added singer Lisbeth Scott to his creative musical lineup for the highly secretive film from director James Cameron. The singer, whose voice can be recognized from many of Hollywood's biggest blockbuster films of the past decade, will be featured on vocal tracks to be used in the film's anticipated breakthrough score.
In his recent interview with MovieScore Magazine, Fox Music executive Mike Knobloch described Horner's early music of "Avatar" as being "epic and hugely cinematic ... music that transports us to another world ... a brilliantly unique blend of traditional and contemporary, electronic elements that spans the entire spectrum of attitude and energy - from bombastic action to the delicate, romantic discovery of a new world." The addition of Lisbeth's vocals came about a year into the score's progress.
Lisbeth Scott's film and television repertoire is of an equally high caliber: Of the last 5 years' top-grossing movies, she's been a featured vocalist in almost half (Passion of the Christ, Narnia, Shrek 2, Transformers, and Munich). Through 2009 she will have made her mark on 2 of television's current top 10 shows as well, with her songs being chosen for both HBO's "True Blood" (a collaboration with composer Nathan Barr) and ABC's "Brothers and Sisters". Lisbeth's ninth studio album will be released on 11/10/09 via BFM Digital under the title "Hope is a Thing", as well as a new holiday release "Peace on Earth". Along with these new albums comes an innovative world-wide web-based campaign at www.hopeisathing.com, featuring children of all backgrounds and ethnicities who express what it is they hope for in today's world via holding up a hand-created sign, and an artistic new music video shot by Academy-Award winning Haskell Wexler. "Hope is a Thing" will be debuted at two concerts at the Edgemar Center for the Arts (11/7 and 11/8, www.edgemar.org), and on 11/20 at Berkeley's Rudramandir - a center for spirituality and healing (www.rudramandir.com).
