Disney Releases Paperman Soundtrack


Disney Releases Paperman Soundtrack

Walt Disney Records has just released the soundtrack for the award-winning animated short Paperman on digital format. The music was composed by Christophe Beck, whose past credits include The Muppets and The Hangover Part 1 and 2. The release of the soundtrack coincides with the announcement that the film has been included in the shortlist of films being considered for an Academy Award nomination.

“I tried to combine some traditional musical colors (like strings and harp) with more modern electronic elements in a way that felt sonically unique, while still evoking romance, longing, and a hint of magic,” said Beck. This was a great way to complement the mixture of old and new techniques in the animation.”

Paperman tells the story of a lonely man in mid-century New York City, whose life takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Event though he has resigned himself to the fact that the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across his office. The short originally appeared as a lead in to the theatrical debut of Wreck-It Ralph on Nov 2, 2012.

Beck described, “with no dialogue, and a black-and-white period setting, it was a great opportunity for music to shine and take center stage in the story-telling.”
