Speaking of Joker – Live In Concert, Hildur Guðnadóttir said: “I am delighted to see and hear Joker in the cinema with a live orchestra.
“When we recorded the music, the orchestra brought such depth and attention to the performances that we all literally held our breath during most of the recording sessions.
“It was a beautiful trip. I’m so happy to be able to go back and have an audience experience it as well.”
Director Todd Phillips said, “I speak for the entire Joker team when I say how thrilled we are to be working with SENBLA and Ollie Rosenblatt on Joker – Live In Concert.
“I think it’s a wonderful way for audiences to experience Hildur Guðnadóttir’s haunting and immersive score while witnessing Joaquin Phoenix’s descent into madness as Arthur.”
