We Bought A Zoo - Music by Jonsi - "We Bought A Zoo (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)"
The original motion picture soundtrack for We Bought A Zoo features music by Sigur Ros front man and leading light, Jon Thor Birgisson, aka Jonsi. Composed at the personal request of We Bought A Zoo director - and huge Sigur Ros aficionado - Cameron Crowe, the soundtrack includes original music composed by Jonsi which plays an integral part to the film's heartfelt emotional landscape.
Among the original score and new songs is 'Gathering Stories', a song co-written by Jonsi and Cameron, in something of a collaborative first for the notoriously private Icelander. Orchestral arrangements on the score have been handled by previous Jonsi working partner, and 'Reader' soundtrack composer, Nico Muhly, who brings his quixotic genius to the string and brass sections.
