Life of Pi

00115938Canadian composer Mychael Danna  won Best Original Score for Life of Pi, the movie.  The story of a 16 year old boy lost at sea with a Bengal tiger for 227 days was  written by Yann Martel, and adapted for a  movie directed by Ang Lee.  The piece “Pondicherry” is about the town that Pi came from.  By the sound of it, it seems that Pi was happy there.  “First Night, First Day” has plenty of tension in it, pretty, but surreal, with the occasional clash of seconds and sevenths.  If you’ve seen the movie, you know where that tension comes from!  A total of fifteen pieces are in this collection of sheet music.  The final question for this story seems to be, “Which Story Do You Prefer?”, which is the next to last piece in this collection. So, which story do you prefer?  For more information about this collection of movie music or others, call  us at 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at, or visit our website,  Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
