It’s official! Sigur Rós lead singer/guitarist, Jónsi (Jón Þór Birgisson) is composing the score for We Bought A Zoo.  Here’s Cameron on the choice:

“Jónsi has been a part of the making of We Bought A Zoo from the very beginning, as we played his Go album often for inspiration and scene-setting for the performances.  It seemed only natural to ask him to join us officially, as our composer.  He said yes, and we’ve been cheering our good forture ever since.  The movie is brimming with his new music, and his one-of-a-kind sonic heartbeat.  He’s a natural at film composing, and we can’t wait to share it with you in the coming months.”

    Excellent.  “Vanilla Sky” made great use of the music of Sigur Ros.  The final scene of “Vanilla Sky” with truly great use of “The Nothing Song” is one of the best marriages of music and film ever conceived.

    I wish I could be happy about this.  I was just such a fan of what Nancy Wilson and Cameron Crowe did together. I know the marriage is over, but I feel like a divorced kid wishing the parents would put all their problems aside and keep doing whats best for the kids…collaborate!!!! That said, maybe it’s that Nancy wasn’t available, since Heart is on tour. 

    Either way, I’m a Cameron Crowe fan and I’m quite sure the score will be a beautiful addition to the movie.

    It’s All Happening,Andrea
