JAMES CAMERON’S “AVATAR” FILM TO FEATURE VOCALS
FROM SINGER LISBETH SCOTT

Composer James Horner to use sought-after singer’s ethereal voice for anticipated film, set to release December 18, 2009

Lisbeth-Scott-Hope-Is-A-ThingAvatar” Composer James Horner has added singer Lisbeth Scott to his creative musical lineup for the highly secretive film from director James Cameron.  The singer, whose voice can be recognized from many of Hollywood’s biggest blockbuster films of the past decade, will be featured on vocal tracks to be used in the film’s anticipated breakthrough score.

In his recent interview with MovieScore Magazine, Fox Music executive Mike Knobloch described Horner’s early music of “Avatar” as being “epic and hugely cinematic… music that transports us to another world… a brilliantly unique blend of traditional and contemporary, electronic elements that spans the entire spectrum of attitude and energy – from bombastic action to the delicate, romantic discovery of a new world.”  The addition of Lisbeth’s vocals came about a year into the score’s progress.

Lisbeth-Scott-ConcertLisbeth Scott’s film and television repertoire is of an equally high caliber: Of the last 5 years’ top-grossing movies, she’s been a featured vocalist in almost half (Passion of the Christ, Narnia, Shrek 2, Transformers, and Munich).  Through 2009 she will have made her mark on 2 of television’s current top 10 shows as well, with her songs being chosen for both HBO‘s “True Blood” and ABC‘s “Brothers and Sisters“.  Lisbeth’s ninth studio album will be released on November 10, 2009 via BFM Digital under the title “Hope is a Thing”, as well as a new holiday release “Peace on Earth”.  Along with these new albums comes an innovative world-wide web-based campaign at www.hopeisathing.com, featuring children of all backgrounds and ethnicities who express what it is they hope for in today’s world via holding up a hand-created sign, and an artistic new music video shot by Academy-Award winning Haskell Wexler.  “Hope is a Thing” debuted at the Edgemar Center for the Arts (November 7 and 8, 2009, www.edgemar.org), and will debut on November 20, 2009 at Berkeley’s Rudramandir – a center for spirituality and healing (www.rudramandir.com).

Avatar” is an upcoming 3-D science fiction epic film directed by Titanic’s James Cameron, and due to be released on December 18th, 2009 by 20th Century Fox.  It is expected that Avatar’s stereoscopic 3D and sound techniques will revolutionize the technology used in modern-day filmography.
