Echoes of dad in Dhani score

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE ’N’ LOUD -

Har­ri­son’s mu­si­cian son Dhani (pic­tured with Paul McCart­ney) had an emo­tional ex­pe­ri­ence record­ing the Beau­ti­ful Crea­tures sound­track be­cause he made the al­bum in the leg­endary Abbey Road Stu­dios. When he was young, Dhani of­ten tagged along with his dad to the fa­bled Lon­don stu­dio, which be­came syn­ony­mous with The Bea­tles and even lent its name to the band’s 1969 al­bum. How­ever, it was only when Dhani’s band, the­newno2, was tapped to score the mu­sic for su­per­nat­u­ral movie Beau­ti­ful Crea­tures that he was pre­sented with his first op­por­tu­nity to record there. ‘‘I spent my whole life in and out of Abbey Road,’’ he tells Rolling Stone mag­a­zine. ‘‘Record­ing at Abbey Road was emo­tional. My first time record­ing there, my first time hear­ing some­thing we com­posed for an orches­tra of that size and my first ma­jor Hol­ly­wood film sound­track.’’ The 34 year old came up with soar­ing ar­range­ments for the orches­tra, and even re­cruited guests in­clud­ing Ben Harper and The Hol­lies’ Tony Hicks.
