A To Z is here and man I am falling behind on my visits. If I have not been to you yet, I am so, so sorry. I've been working a lot and a couple of projects that needed finishing, but I am trying like mad and I will visit. As always I direct you to the top of my side bar to visit the other amazing participants in this wonderful challenge.
I'm so very happy that you all are enjoying my theme and leaving such wonderful comments. For the letter G, I've chosen Lisa Gerrard, musician and composer. She has collaborated with some of the giants in movie music, working Hans Zimmer on the Gladiator soundtrack for which she won a Golden Globe, but because the Academy only allows one person to accept, she was not able to get a gold statue. She also helped score Mission Impossible II again with Zimmer, The Insider and Ali with Pieter Bourke and Fateless with Ennio Morricone. Her score for the Whale Rider consisted of all her own compositions and won a Best Score at the New Zealand Film awards in 2002. She has also scored films such as Layer Cake with Ilan Eshkeri, Balibo, and Playing For Charlie.
In addition to scoring, Lisa has contributed innumerable pieces to various soundtracks including "The Host of the Seraphim" for Legend of the Guardian: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, "Amergin's Invocation" for King Arthur and "Elegy" for the upcoming Man of Steel. Future projects include the horror thriller I, Frankenstein. She is also an accomplished vocalist with a contralto range and formed the group Dead Can Dance with Brendan Perry and Paul Erickson. The group recorded 8 albums and split in 1998, but has since reunited for a world tour and a new album Anastasis.
How was your weekend? Mine's been wicked busy and I'll need to go to work to rest up. LOL.
