Heitor Pereira Coaxes Emotion Out of Music

26 August 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Heitor Pereira was a boy growing up in rural, heavily forested Brazil, his grandfather — an avid birdwatcher — used to tell him, “Listen to the symphony of the birds and the life around us. Can you imagine a day without these melodies?”

Nowadays Pereira honors that memory within the context of moving pictures, whether mimicking nature or underscoring character and story.

“Melody is still where I start,” says the composer of such animated features as “Despicable Me” and “Minions,” and live-action films like “If I Stay” and “It’s Complicated.” “Even if it’s a birthplace for the score and then becomes textural. If I do that, I never get lost, because melodies have meaning. They are a musical conclusion of a conversation that we may have about a character.”

Pereira is among a long line of film composers — including Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer and Trent Reznor — who established themselves in the pop realm. »
