The original soundtrack for David Fincher's "THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON" is composed, conducted, and produced by Alexandre Desplat. Desplat has received Oscar and BAFTA nominations for "The Queen", and the International Film Music Critics Association's 2007 Composer of the Year and Best Original Score for a Fantasy/Science-Fiction film Awards for "The Golden Compass".
The double disc set includes an entire CD devoted to Desplat's Score, and a second to Jazz, Big Band, and '50s Classics by Bix Beiderbecke, The Boswell Sisters, Louis Armstrong, The Platters, and others.
Award-winning composer Alexandre Desplat's Golden Globe nominated score to film is said to have created a mesmerizing sonic mindscape that mirrors the unique emotional world of the movie's lead character, Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt). Based on F.Scott Fitzgerald's short story, the score and movie explore the life of some one who is born an old man and ages backwards.
