Thomas Newman

A second-generation member of Hollywood's preeminent musical dynasty, composer Thomas Newman carried on his family's legacy through a series of Academy Award-nominated film scores. He was born in Los Angeles on October 20, 1955, the son of Alfred Newman and the nephew of Lionel and Emil Newman, all three renowned composers and conductors from Hollywood's golden age. (Thomas' brother David also followed in the family business, as did their cousin, the sardonic singer/songwriter Randy Newman.) Thomas studied piano and violin as a child, following a two-year stay at the University of Southern California by earning a master's degree in music from Yale. Although his early musical theater project Three Mean Fairy Tales was championed by Stephen Sondheim, Newman spent the better part of the late '70s playing keyboards in the rock band the Innocents and the improvisational combo Tokyo 77. In 1983, he broke into the film industry by orchestrating a John Williams cue from Return of the Jedi, composing his first full score, Reckless, the following year.

Newman's ethnic-inspired score to the 1985 Madonna vehicle Desperately Seeking Susan proved his breakthrough, and he further honed his distinctive electro-orchestral approach on subsequent projects including 1987's The Lost Boys and Less Than Zero. Films including Fried Green Tomatoes, The Rapture, and Scent of a Woman followed before Newman earned a pair of Oscar nominations in 1994 for his work on The Shawshank Redemption and Little Women; a year later, he received another Academy Award nomination for Unstrung Heroes. Newman's fourth Oscar bid arrived with 1999's American Beauty, which did not win the composer an Oscar for best score, but the soundtrack album, released by DreamWorks, did win the Grammy Award in its category. Newman received further Academy Award nominations in successive years for his work on Road to Perdition (2002), Finding Nemo (2003), and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004). He won another two Grammy Awards for his theme for the television series Six Feet Under, best instrumental composition and best instrumental arrangement. His eighth Oscar nomination came with The Good German (2006). ~ Jason Ankeny & William Ruhlmann, Rovi

This sounds like one of the soundtrack music in one of the Halo games. Oh the good old days...��
This is beautiful! I love this for when I am studying, it is very musically interesting. . .
great makes you think
Reminds me of the Meet Joe Black soundtrack, which Mr. Newman did. This title doesn't show in soundtrack list though.

I agree @paigejudith 4 4 as soon as it came on I knew I head it before

I'm pretty sure this song is in the soundtrack for The Last Song with Miley Cyrus
I am almost positive I heard this tune a few days ago when I re-watched Phenomenon (John Travolta). It's kind of eerie, but beautiful.
This tune affects me very weirdly, and I can't put my finger on why...remind s me of the WTC for some reason...
John Williams is the best. Newman is very talented with a style all his own.
If anyone deserves an Oscar it is this man. He is the greatest composer alive today.
This came out in Halo !
Love any other name so soothing☺️
Was this used in the hunger games movies??
This song is my FAVORITE sleep melody, works like magic EVERYTIME. THIS is my Nyquil EVERY NIGHT.
Seriously Halo Reach. I don't know how.
Sad song but very good song reminds me of the end of American Beauty

This reminds me of Finding Nemo

Sunny June day. Heat rising off the late afternoon sand. Cool drink at my lips. Young again.

This sounds similar to something from Greys Anatomy, House, Criminal Minds and American Beauty. lol. like ithough.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in two days now you've started reading so don't it's so scary put this on 5 songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters.
I love this movie!
This definitely sounds like the halo soundtrack
