It is time once again to talk about a composer we’ve barely mentioned on the show. Join Will & Wend in San Ricardo for their score guide to the 2011 Dreamworks animation Puss in Boots and it’s amazing film score by the talented English film composer Henry Jackman.
Produced by Guillermo del Toro and directed by Chris Miller, this spin-off prequel to the Shrek franchise features music which plays to the comedy, excitement, adventure, spirit and magic of this imaginative fairytale. Inspired by one of the most important Spanish composers of the 20th Century, Manuel de Falla, Henry Jackman used folk instruments from Latin America and blended the incredible guitar talents of Mexican duo Rodrigo y Gabriela with an orchestral palette influenced by Debussy and Ravel to create the score.
It is our pleasure to guide you through this under-appreciated and rarely talked about underscore, so sit back, relax, tap your feet and enjoy our 12th Score Guide as we explore the highly rhythmic and melodic instrumentation on show here, discussing all our favourite themes and musical moments whilst providing you, our attentive and gracious listener, with an entertaining and informative accompaniment to one of our favourite Henry Jackman scores.
