ABOUT THE FILMMAKERS: MYCHAEL DANNA (Music) is recognized as one of the pioneers of combining non-Western sound sources with orchestral and electronic elements in the world of film music. Danna has been scoring films since his 1987 feature debut, Atom Egoyan’s Family Viewing. He hails from Canada, where he has won five Genie Awards, the latest for his score for the Academy Award-nominated foreign language film Water, directed by Deepa Mehta. Danna received Genie Awards for his composing work on the Atom Egoyan films Ararat, Felicia’s Journey, The Sweet Hereafter and Exotica. LIFE OF PI marks Danna’s third collaboration with Ang Lee, having previously written the original music for The Ice Storm and Ride with the Devil. Danna collaborates regularly with such noted filmmakers as Bennett Miller, for whom he composed the scores for the multiple Oscar-nominee Moneyball starring Brad Pitt and the Oscar-winning drama Capote starring Philip Seymour Hoffman; Terry Gilliam on the Oscar-nominated The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Tideland; Mira Nair on Vanity Fair, Monsoon Wedding and Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love; and Billy Ray on Breach and Shattered Glass. Danna’s composing credits also include the Oscar-winning hit Little Miss Sunshine, for which he shared a Grammy® Award nomination for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album; Marc Webb’s acclaimed romantic comedy (500) Days of Summer; Robert Schwentke’s romantic drama The Time Traveler’s Wife; James Mangold’s Oscar-winning Girl, Interrupted starring Angelina Jolie; Neil LaBute’s Lakeview Terrace; Sony’s animated film Surf’s Up; Gregory Hoblit’s Fracture starring Anthony Hopkins and Ryan Gosling; Istvan Szabo’s Oscar-nominated Being Julia starring Annette Bening; Denzel Washington’s directorial debut Antwone Fisher; Scott Hicks’ Hearts in Atlantis; and Joel Schumacher’s 8MM. Danna received an Emmy nomination along with his brother, composer Jeff Danna, for Outstanding Main Title Theme music for their theme to “Camelot” starring Joseph Fiennes. Danna studied music composition at the University of Toronto, winning the Glenn Gould Composition Scholarship in 1985. He served as composer-in-residence at the McLaughlin Planetarium in Toronto. For LIFE OF PI, in addition to writing the original score, Danna co-wrote the film’s original song “Pi’s Lullaby” with singer/songwriter Bombay Jayashri, who performs the song in her native Tamil language. The film allowed Danna to draw from many chapters of his musical upbringing -- church choirs, piano, Indian music, electronic music -- in writing and recording the score. He traveled to India to work with Jayashri and other respected Indian musicians and also incorporated such notable Western influences as the accordion and mandolin, as well as a full Los Angeles studio orchestra. *** L’ODYSSÉE DE PI est le troisième film d’Ang Lee dont MYCHAEL DANNA (Compositeur) compose la musique, après ICE STORM et CHEVAUCHÉE AVEC LE DIABLE. Il a non seulement composé la musique originale du film, mais a aussi coécrit la chanson « Pi’s Lullaby » avec l’auteure-compositrice-interprète Bombay Jayashri, qui l’interprète dans sa langue natale, le tamoul. Le film a permis à Mychael Danna de puiser dans son expérience musicale éclectique en mêlant chœurs d’église, piano, musique indienne et musique électronique. Il s’est rendu en Inde pour travailler avec Bombay Jayashri et d’autres musiciens indiens respectés, et a aussi fait intervenir des influences occidentales comme l’accordéon et la mandoline, ainsi qu’un orchestre de studio complet à Los Angeles. D’origine canadienne, Mychael Danna a remporté cinq Genie Awards, les Oscars canadiens, dont le dernier pour WATER de Deepa Mehta. Il a obtenu les quatre autres pour la musique des films d’Atom Egoyan ARARAT, LE VOYAGE DE FELICIA, DE BEAUX LENDEMAINS et EXOTICA. Mychael Danna entretient une collaboration suivie avec Egoyan depuis FAMILY VIEWING, remportant trois nominations aux Genies supplémentaires pour LA VÉRITÉ NUE et SPEAKING PARTS, et pour la chanson titre de DE BEAUX LENDEMAINS. Il a également composé pour Egoyan la musique de ADORATION et THE ADJUSTER, ainsi que celle des segments que le réalisateur a signés pour CHACUN SON CINÉMA et MONTRÉAL, VU PAR… En 2009, CHLOÉ marquait sa douzième collaboration avec Egoyan. Il a par ailleurs été nommé au Genie Award pour RENAISSANCE de Gillies MacKinnon, LILIES de John Greyson et COLD COMFORT de Vic Sarin. Mychael Danna est réputé pour avoir été l’un des pionniers de la combinaison de sons autres qu’occidentaux avec des sons orchestraux et électroniques minimalistes dans le domaine de la musique de films. Outre Atom Egoyan, il a travaillé avec des réalisateurs tels Ash Brannon et Chris Buck, Jonathan Dayton et Valerie Faris, Scott Hicks, Gillies MacKinnon, Deepa Mehta, Billy Ray, Todd Robinson et Charles Martin Smith. Il a composé pour Mira Nair la musique de VANITY FAIR, LA FOIRE AUX VANITÉS ; LE MARIAGE DES MOUSSONS et KAMA SUTRA, UNE HISTOIRE D’AMOUR, et ses segments de 8 et NEW YORK, I LOVE YOU. Pour Ang Lee, il a signé celle de CHEVAUCHÉE AVEC LE DIABLE et ICE STORM, pour Billy Ray celle de AGENT DOUBLE et de LE MYSTIFICATEUR. Il a aussi composé entre autres la musique de 8 MM de Joel Schumacher, UNE VIE VOLÉE de James Mangold, CŒUR PERDUS EN ATLANTIDE de Scott Hicks, ANTWONE FISHER de Denzel Washington, ADORABLE JULIA d’Istvan Szabo, TIDELAND de Terry Gilliam. Il a composé en 2006 la musique du film oscarisé LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE de Jonathan Dayton et Valerie Faris, pour lequel il partage une nomination de la meilleure compilation pour une musique de film. Parmi ses films plus récents figurent TRUMAN CAPOTE de Bennett Miller, LA NATIVITÉ de Catherine Hardwicke, le thriller LA FAILLE de Gregory Hoblit et le film d’animation LES ROIS DE LA GLISSE. Il a composé la musique de HEAVEN ON EARTH de Deepa Mehta, HARCELÉS de Neil LaBute, 500 JOURS ENSEMBLE de Marc Webb, L’IMAGINARIUM DU DOCTEUR PARNASSUS de Terry Gilliam et HORS DU TEMPS de Robert Schwentke. Plus récemment, il a signé les partitions de COOKING WITH STELLA de Dilip Mehta, TROP LOIN POUR TOI de Nanette Burstein, SEULE CONTRE TOUS de Larysa Kondracki et LE STRATÈGE, son deuxième film avec Bennet Miller, interprété par Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill et Philip Seymour Hoffman. Côté télévision, il a été nommé à l’Emmy Award avec son frère Jeff Danna pour la musique du générique de « Camelot », avec Joseph Fiennes. Il a aussi composé la musique des séries « Médium », « Dollhouse », « New Amsterdam », et « Les contes d’Avonlea ». Il a signé celle de « The Matthew Shepard Story » et a obtenu un Gemini Award. Mychael Danna a étudié la composition musicale à l’université de Toronto, où il a décroché la Glenn Gould Composition Scholarship en 1985. Il a été compositeur en résidence au McLaughlin Planetarium de Toronto de 1982 à 1992. Il a composé pour des compagnies de danse comme la Compagnie Carbone Quatorze de Gilles Maheu en 1996, et a créé « Gita Govinda » pour le Royal Winnipeg Ballet en 2001, d’après le poème millénaire indien, avec la chorégraphe Nina Menon. © 2012 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.
