According to Film Music Reporter, Oscar nominated, Owen Pallet, will score Anton Corbijn’s Life.

Owen Pallett is composing the music for the upcoming drama Life. The film is directed by Anton Corbijn (Control) and stars Robert Pattinson, Dane DeHaan, Joel Edgerton and Ben Kingsley. The movie is inspired by the true story of a friendship that developed between Magnum photographer Dennis Stock and actor James Dean when Stock was commissioned to photograph the actor for LIFE magazine in 1955.

Pallett received his first Oscar nomination in 2014 for the film, Her, by Spike Jonze and starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson. Check out the score in the playlist below. Fun trivia: Pallett has worked with Arcade Fire before, contributing to some of their albums including their most recent one, Reflektor.
