Continuing my tribute to James Horner, here’s All Love Can Be from the film A Beautiful Mind. This haunting song was recorded by Charlotte Church for the film and she described it as one of the most haunting and beautiful songs she had ever performed.
To convey the beauty of mathematics, Horner focused on the idea of a kaleidoscope which constantly changes patterns, some patterns moving quickly and other patterns moving more slowly underneath. He conveyed this in the music with the chord progression and the build up of the counter melodies and harmonies. I hope you enjoy this lovely song.
