Glaso’s Music production in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit, has been described as a “gigantic, multi-layered, multi dimensional music project”.
However, in a new interview, the Glasgow-based music producer has revealed he doesn’t think it’s the most accurate description.
Glasgow-based producer Alex Stiles, who produced the theme for the Hobbit film, said he was never given the title of “Music Producer” when he was first introduced to the project, and that the title has since changed.
He told Radio Scotland’s Top Gear podcast: “I’m a producer, so I was never told that I was going to be the producer.
I wasn’t even told that it was going be a music project.”
I was never in a position to say that, so that’s where the confusion lies.
“Glaso told Radio Scottish that he was initially given the label, “Music Production” but said that it wasn’t until a few months after the film was finished that the project changed.”
At that point in time, I didn’t have any information to go by,” he said.”
The film was just coming together and we were working on it.
We were working through all the other stuff, but I wasn’st really involved in that.
“We were just working through the film.”
Glasses producer, Mark Stoll, who also worked on the soundtrack for the Lord Of The Rings trilogy and was instrumental in helping to finish the film, told Radio Glasgow: “Glas is a huge city, with so many different people and so many interests.”
There’s so much to be done here.
“It’s not just about making movies, but actually making a living.”
Glasko said that while the film itself was still in the making, it was also “an experience” that would have a lasting impact.
“You could imagine how a lot of people are going to react to it,” he added.
“As a producer and as a filmmaker, you have to have a certain level of self-awareness.”
Some people can’t see it, but if they saw it, they would probably say, ‘I would definitely make the film’.
