David Arnold In-depth Biography

Film composer David Arnold} seems to have risen to prominence with unnerving swiftness, but this is in fact an illusion, as Arnold} spent many years paying his dues by writing scores for English television and documentary film projects, many of them produced or directed by his lifelong friend Danny Cannon}. In between times, Arnold} tried out for the Clash} and the Waterboys}, but failed to get the gigs. Cannon} made the move to feature directing with the 1993 film The Young Americans}, tapping Arnold} to provide the score. Arnold}, in turn, co-wrote "Play Dead"} with Iceland's Bjork}, giving the film a British Top Ten hit. Cannon} went on to Judge Dredd}, while Arnold} visited Los Angeles with a copy of The Young Americans}. The net result of that visit was the assignment to score Roland Emmerich}'s Stargate}.

Arnold}'s grandiose score for Stargate} drew both positive and negative critical attention, in part because of Arnold}'s attention to traditional methods and styles of motion picture scoring. The music was created to be almost wall-to-wall, strong on melody. Arnold} went on to score The Last of the Dogmen} in a more sedate manner, following that with a score for Cutthroat Island} that ended up, like much else with that film, being thrown out. Going into 1996, he was once again working for Emmerich} and Dean Devlin} on a wall-to-wall orchestral score for Independence Day}, providing music that was delivered on an equal scale to the visuals of the film. 1997 saw him composing the theme to the short-lived The Visitor} TV series and acting as the music director and composer for A Life Less Ordinary}, a score that once again saw him writing more sedate music.

The big news for 1997, however, was Arnold}'s assignment to score Tomorrow Never Dies}, the second Pierce Brosnan}-starring {%James Bond} film. Arnold}'s score has drawn uniform praise, though the Sheryl Crow} title song, produced without Arnold}'s participation, has been derided. A second song, performed by k.d. lang} and produced/co-written by Arnold}, has received a great deal of praise and some degree of success. Arnold} also produced a {%James Bond} music tribute called Shaken and Stirred}, featuring Propellerheads} and others. In 1998, Arnold} worked on his next major score project -- the Roland Emmerich} remake of Godzilla}. ~ Steven McDonald, All Music Guide
