The Sound of 'Brokeback Mountain'

Producer Derek Rath speaks with composer Gustavo Santoalalla, the man behind the music for the upcoming film Brokeback Mountain.

The film follows the lives of two cowboys who share a physical and emotional relationship that haunts their lives.

In an unusual reversal of how a film is commonly scored, Santoalalla says the music was created first and used as an inspiration for the film's shooting and for the actors.
