Editors’ Notes

Carter Burwell is well known for his work with the Coen Brothers — his debut effort was the score for 1984’s Blood Simple — but he has written music for dozens of other films as well. He often incorporates rock elements into his work, and that influence is on display in his score for Catherine Hardwicke’s adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s popular vampire novel, Twilight. Much of the music is striking for its tasteful restraint, considering the movie’s charged material. Two of the key tracks, “Bella’s Lullaby” and the closer, “Edward at Her Bed,” possess a strong romantic quality — the former, with its lush orchestration and striking piano melody, bristles with mystery, while the latter cut possesses a sense of melancholy tranquility. Some of the score is big and loud; a number of pieces feature tribal, almost ritualistic, percussion and piercing electric guitar tones. (The guitar parts, played by David Torn, Kaki King, and Mitch Dalton, bring to mind art-metal.) Burwell not only composed this effective score, he conducted, orchestrated, and produced it as well.

Customer Reviews

and so the lion fell in love with the lamb...

I went and saw this movie a few days ago and it blew my mind!! Not only is it enjoyable but the music helps tie everything together and helps tell the story. Carter Burwell has done a great done with this album... It's a must have for all the Twilighters out there!

Don't think twice - JUST BUY THE ALBUM!

Don't worry - I am not writing this to confess my love for a fictional character (even if Rob Patterson IS gorgous). When I bought this a album, I thought 'hmm, maybe I should have bought the soundtrack instead. ' Think again, my good friends (other twilighters)! Take the time to listen to the pieces, and you will find that music can sound great even if a person isn't being torn apart in the scene it's being played in. I love Bella's Lullaby (as any true twilighter should), I know what you are, Bella is part of the family . . . but I'm running out of space. So lets just say ALL OF THEM.


These songs really capture each moment in the movie and i can instantly relate to the feelings of the characters with each different song. They're very well done and are good to listen to. GREAT *thumbs up*

By turns haunting and dark or quirky and experimental, Burwell's eclectic music has graced films in a wide variety of genres, and he's used the occasional big-studio project to finance his work on a number of groundbreaking independent films. Born November 18, 1955 in New York, Burwell took piano lessons...
