The Twilight Impulse

My thoughts and impressions of the Twilight Saga, written by the fabulous Stephenie Meyer


Hey, I'm a massive Twilight Fan, and thanks to my friends being fed up with having to listern to my non-stop chattering about Twilight, i decided to create a blog for myself to just vent and document my twilight obsession!! I'm current studying journalism and have aspiration to become one, so why not write about something as awesome as the Twilight Saga!!

Alexandre Desplat's score

This was really cool!! Chris Weitz and Alexandre Desplat attended the Billboard Film and TV Music Conference. All they spoke about was the film, the score and the soundtrack. Nothing about trivial gossip, like "Robstern" and the actors. Yes!! Some actual technical important information into the making of the film and the composition of the score. I'm so glad! These are only a few details. Letter's to Twilight, is going to release more detail later!

Anyway, i found this really cool that Alexandre has created "themes" for different characters, so one for Edward, one for Bella, and one for Jacob, that is played while they are dominant in the scene. Plus, even more brilliantly, Alexandre has blurred and combined the themes of Edward and Jacob together, to portray Bella's confusion and being caught in between two guys. OMG! That is so amazing!! The music is going to be phenomenal, i just know it. Judging from "The Meadow," already released on the soundtrack, the score is going to be better than the soundtrack!! In the words of Edward, "unequivocally."

In Jacob's theme, Alexandre features an electric guitar that sounds very similar to an Indian sitar!! Awesome, even in the music, he tries to reflect Jacob's strong culture! The Quileutes have very strong connection with their tribe, their beliefs, and their histories. Which is great to see conveyed though the music, because it's such a huge part of the film. It just gives New Moon that added depth, that will make it a better film.That is so thoughtful and just plain cool. You can tell that Alexandre has put lots of though, and effort into the score.

Even better, the New Moon score will NOT feature any of Carter Burwell's music!! At all!! YES!!! Sorry, i know that is really mean, but i didn't like any of the compositions that he created in Twilight. The music wasn't that great. Plus, he totally butchered the lullaby, which i won't forgive him for. Thanks, Chris for getting Alexandre on board for the New Moon score. I'm pretty sure that i will be eternally grateful to you. Plus, I'll go see every single one of the films in the future, as an effort to show by deepest appreciation of you!!
