Breaking Dawn Part 1 Soundtrack Influential Music Supervisor Shines Spotlight on Little Known Rockers
Inspired by Stephanie Meyer’s love for bands like Muse and playlists posted on her website before the movies even came out, soundtrack supervisor Alexandra Patsavas worked her magic.
Out of the 15 acts of the bands on the Breaking Dawn Soundtrack, four are unsigned. How were the songs picked?
For the latest installment, Ms. Patsavas says she and her Chop Shop team of seven people weeded through 2,000 song submissions, then worked with director Bill Condon and editor Virginia Katz to decide on the best fits. Coloring the overall sound: the climactic wedding between the vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) and his mortal love Bella (Kristen Stewart). Ms. Patsavas says she hunted for numbers that could be used (and now undoubtedly will be) at real-life weddings.
I’m incredibly impressed by the Breaking Dawn Soundtrack after hearing it during the exclusive event. I’ve already pre-ordered the digital version from but wish they had a a version on vinyl for collectors!
