And Fincher does believe in french composer Alexandre Desplat: "'Birth' is one of my favorite scores, as good as anything I've heard in 25 years. Alexandre's music is playful and witty. But I think it's the oblique nature by which he goes at things."
The article gives quite some room to describing the atmosphere and feel of the soundtrack-in-progress, and, I feel, holds some wise words and advice from David Fincher about approaching scoring from a director's point of view.
It definitely has me preordering the CD as soon as possible, ... and highly grateful to fincherfanatic Gould, who contributed the link! -- Thanks, man.
