Walt Disney Records: "ARTEMIS FOWL" music by Patrick Doyle

 

Walt Disney Records has released the original motion picture soundtrack for “Artemis Fowl,” now streaming only on Disney+. The digital album features original music by Patrick Doyle (“Murder on the Orient Express,” “Cinderella,” “Brave”) marking the fifteenth time Doyle has collaborated with director Kenneth Branagh.   The Artemis Fowl soundtrack is available here.  

Recorded at AIR Studios in London, the score was conducted by James Shearman and produced by Maggie Rodford.   Branaugh also serves as Executive Soundtrack Producer

Doyle’s long-time creative collaboration with Branagh began in 1989 with “Henry V.”   The film’s song ‘Non Nobis Domine’ was awarded the 1989 Ivor Novello Award for Best Film Theme.  In 1991, they re-teamed for “Dead Again,” which earned Doyle a Golden Globe®-nomination. Subsequent collaborations include “Frankenstein,” “Much Ado About Nothing,” “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” “As You Like It,” “Hamlet” (for which Doyle received an Oscar® nomination for Best Original Score), “Sleuth,” and “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.”

Doyle has scored over 50 international feature films, including “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” “Gosford Park,” “Sense and Sensibility,” “Indochine,” “Carlito’s Way” and “A Little Princess.” His work has led to collaborations with some of the most acclaimed directors in the world, including Regis Wargnier, Brian De Palma, Alfonso Cuarón, Ang Lee, Chen Kaige, Mike Newell and Robert Altman.

Disney’s “Artemis Fowl,” based on the beloved book by Eoin Colfer, is a fantastical, spellbinding adventure that follows the journey of 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he desperately tries to save his father who has been kidnapped. In order to pay his ransom, Artemis must infiltrate an ancient, underground civilization—the amazingly advanced world of fairies—and bring the kidnapper the Aculos, the fairies’ most powerful and coveted magical device. To locate the elusive object, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.

“Artemis Fowl” is directed by Kenneth Branagh and stars Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Josh Gad, Tamara Smart, Nonzo Anozie, with Colin Farrell and Judi Dench. Kenneth Branagh, p.g.a. and Judy Hofflund, p.g.a. are producing with Matthew Jenkins and Angus More Gordon serving as executive producers. Conor McPherson and Hamish McColl wrote the screenplay.
