Thomas Newman

A second-generation member of Hollywood's preeminent musical dynasty, composer Thomas Newman carried on his family's legacy through a series of Academy Award-nominated film scores. Born in Los Angeles on October 20, 1955, he was the son of Alfred Newman and the nephew of Lionel and Emil Newman, all three renowned composers and conductors from Hollywood's golden age; Thomas' brother David also followed in the family business, as did their cousin, the sardonic singer/songwriter Randy Newman. Thomas studied piano and violin as a child, following a two-year stay at the University of Southern California by earning a master's degree in music from Yale. Although his early musical theater project Three Mean Fairy Tales was championed by Stephen Sondheim, Newman spent the better part of the late '70s playing keyboards in the rock band the Innocents and the improvisational combo Tokyo 77. In 1983, he broke into the film industry by orchestrating a John Williams cue from Return of the Jedi, composing his first full score, Reckless, the following year.

Newman's ethnic-inspired score to the 1985 Madonna vehicle Desperately Seeking Susan proved his breakthrough, and he further honed his distinctive electro-orchestral approach on subsequent projects including 1987's The Lost Boys and Less Than Zero. Films including Fried Green Tomatoes, The Rapture, and Scent of a Woman followed before Newman earned a pair of Oscar nominations in 1994 for his work on The Shawshank Redemption and Little Women; a year later, he received another Academy Award nomination for Unstrung Heroes. Newman's fourth Oscar bid arrived with 1999's American Beauty, which did not win the composer an Oscar for best score, but the soundtrack album, released by DreamWorks, did win the Grammy Award in its category. Newman received further Academy Award nominations in successive years for his work on Road to Perdition (2002), Finding Nemo (2003), and Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004). He won another two Grammy Awards for his theme for the television series Six Feet Under, best instrumental composition and best instrumental arrangement. His eighth Oscar nomination came with The Good German (2006). ~ Jason Ankeny & William Ruhlmann, Rovi

I just watched White Oleander, I KNEW I RECOGNIZED THOMAS NEWMAN!!! love him��
love
Yeah I remember this from Six Feet Under
This is either from nemo or halo
A light and airy sound is Thomas Newman's trademark. All of his scores consist of a sweeping orchestra with either piano, flute, or marimba almost always taking lead melody, blending sweetly together in an ambient, almost dreamlike quality. Whether it is dark like Road to Perdition or a whimsical children's film like Finding Nemo, Newman never fails to create a score that tugs my heartstrings !
Road to Perdition with Tom Hanks
Does anyone else think this sounds like Nemo? When the whale eats Marlin and Dory. Or when Marlin finds out Coral died and he sees Nemo in the beginning.
I know this is partly from Halo but it sounds like it should be used in Zelda
Actually, that Youtube video states:
The Halo 3 ending, edited slightly to go with the song Any Other Name By Thomas Newman. Enjoy Halo fans! :)
Yep, at least a portion of this song was definitely used in halo:https:/ / w w w . y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v = D C 9 c 2 L f A 2 U Y

Love Thomas Newman! He scores the best films. Any Other Name played on Trent Reznor/Attic u s Ross Radio dubbed Movie Sounds.
It sounds like the show H2o: Just add water!
This has also been used in a few episodes of Six feet under as well
vlcancino
Beautiful melody, heard it in White Oleander too <3
Thomas Newman's music is very good but as many have eluded to, EXACTLY THE SAME in most of his movies
This song is from a lot of movies. It sounds so familiar
HOUSE
Wow, the son of Alfred E. Newman. I bet he never worries.
This sounds so familiar
I am certain this is from 'Shawshank Redemption'.
fantist
This song sounded so familiar I had to switch back to Pandora and see the title of it. Was this in one of the games from the Mass Effect trilogy?
Wasn't this at the end of the movie "blow" with Johnny Depp?
Shawshank
American Beauty... That's the movie for which was first written.
blackcoffeeo w l
Definitely from House.
Finding Nemo! Very depressing but inspiring at the same time.
I heard this and was like NEMOOOOOO. I love this song. It's beautiful.
Meet Joe Black, one of my all time favorites!!!
I'll plan to post on Sunday...
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it works
