Behind The Scenes Peek: Making The ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ Soundtrack
  |  @   |  

At the end of last month, the entire soundtrack for Spike Jonze‘s Where the Wild Things Are by Karen O was up to listen to free of charge (Read: New “˜Where The Wild Things Are’ Images Set To The Full Soundtrack). You can still head over there and listen if you have not yet done so (it’s very good), and now you can peek at an equally good little video showcasing the making of said soundtrack.

The feature talks about how Jonze always had Karen O in mind for the music, and how her work with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs always had a that childlike innocence to it. You’ll see the movie’s young star, Max Records, in the studio to do some small voice recordings for the tracks; a peek a what looks like a really beautiful snowy scene using a Daniel Johnston (The Devil and Daniel Johnston) cover song; as well as their use of a children’s choir in some of the recordings.

Click on over to the other side to check out the video, it’s very much worth it, I promise.

Where the Wild Things Are tells the story of a young boy named Max (Max Records), who is punished and creates his own imaginary world to escape to. In this world, a species of large monsters crown Max as their king. The movie stars Forest Whitaker, James Gandolfini, Paul Dano, Catherine Keener, and Catherine O’Hara.

It is currently set for an October 16, 2009 release date.
