Laurent Eyquem to Score “Copperhead” Soundtrack

Created on 12 July 2012

Eyquem100With every film comes the person that will compose its soundtrack, something I consider to be absolutely essential to a movie’s success, because it sets the tone and establishes the mood we are in throughout. There are only a select few movies that I consider my favorites that do not have a memorable score, so you can see how important the music is to me. The man who will be responsible for scoring Copperhead is Bordeaux, France-native Laurent Eyquem, who has 14 film credits as a composer to his name, all since 2008 (he has five that are in production as we speak, one of which is a WWII film about the USS Indianapolis).

Finished works include Winnie (2011), where he worked with Copperhead music supervisor David Franco (who has also worked on Gettysburg and Gods and Generals), and the popular French-Canadian film Three Seasons (2009). A classical pianist since the age of six, Eyquem has also been nominated for two awards, the Genie and Jutra, for best music for a film titled Mommy is at the Hairdresser’s (2008).

Having listened to a few music samples located on his official website, I think he is the right man for the job. Some of his tracks are very intense, which would be a fitting tone for this film. Check out “Victory” on his action/adventure playlist—I think that is my favorite piece so far. We may be a long-way off from hearing any samples of the Copperhead soundtrack, as music for films is usually written after the project has been completed and edited.

Other members of the music department crew include the above mentioned Franco, the music supervisor, and Peter Rotter, the orchestra contractor. Rotter has worked on films such as Avatar, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Angels & Demons, among more than 500 others.
