The Happening Score Recording Soon

In a recent interview, Donald Foster mentioned that recording for James Newton Howard’s score to Shyamalan’s triller The Happening will start in the next two weeks. Who is this Donald Foster you say? Well, Foster is a professional clarinet player who has performed on scores like: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, I Am Legend and Indiana Jones and the Kindgom of the Crystal Skull. Recording should start sometime during the 3rd week of March, with recording sessions lasting anywhere from 5 to 10 days. Stay tuned for updates.

  1. I can't wait to hear James Newton Howard's score for The Happening. I love all of his work. Both M. Night Shyamalan & James Newton Howard!

  2. I'm almost as excited for this score as I am for the movie itself. JNH does such great work… his Village, Lady in the Water, and King Kong scores are genius.

  3. I don't know, if you ask me “Signs” is his best work by far! I listen to it everday religously! The three note motif is spine-tingling perfect!

  4. Oh, and yes, I can't wait for this score either! MNS + JNH = One of the greatest movies of all time! :laughing:
