Cannes 2013: T-Bone Burnett Teases Live & Studio Versions Of 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Soundtrack, And Further “Events,” Plus New Photos From The Film

The Playlist By Jessica Kiang | The Playlist May 19, 2013 at 11:15AM

Following its almost uniformly rapturous reception yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival (you can read our take here) today the ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ team showed up in force for the press conference. With Joel and Ethan Coen, Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Garrett Hedlund, T-Bone Burnett and cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel comprising the panel it really felt like of the principals, only John Goodman and perhaps “Doogie Howser” alum Max Casella (who incidentally, is totally having a moment right now) were absent. It wasn’t perhaps the most illuminating press conference ever, with hard-hitting questions ranging from “How much did you laugh on set?” to “Oscar Isaac, you were amazing, how did you manage to be so amazing?” but one tiny detail caught our attention.

Inside Llewyn Davis

Following its almost uniformly rapturous reception yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival (you can read our take here) today the ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ team showed up in force for the press conference. With Joel and Ethan Coen, Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Garrett Hedlund, T-Bone Burnett and cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel comprising the panel, it really felt like of the principals, only John Goodman and perhaps “Doogie Howser” alum Max Casella (who incidentally, is totally having a moment right now) were absent. It wasn’t perhaps the most illuminating press conference ever, with hard-hitting questions ranging from “How much did you laugh on set?” to “Oscar Isaac, you were amazing, how did you manage to be so amazing?” but one tiny detail caught our attention.

The most interesting moment came, as these things inevitably go, as the answer to the very final question, posed by the moderator, about whether and how soon we might see the songs as performed by the actors in some sort of album form. Burnett demurred a little initially, but did say, after claiming that finding Isaac for the part was “like a 1 in 17 million chance -- I haven’t done exact calculations,” that there is plenty of material already laid down from the many, many rehearsals they did. “There were a lot of recording rehearsals... You wanna know you’ve got it down before you [go on set] especially when you’re going live… So we recorded the whole show in advance in studio and we recorded the whole show live too, so we have two different libraries of material to work with.” But perhaps more intriguingly he referred to other stuff that might happen with the film’s standout music.“But there’ll also be other events…we basically did all this ourselves” he said, going on to insinuate that the level of everyone’s personal investment in the project meant they were going to do whatever they could to get it out there.

Time frustratingly ran out before he could say anything more concrete, but perhaps we should be looking forward not just to studio and live versions of the soundtrack’s songs when the album does come out, but also a concert or two? Maybe? We should find out closer to the release of "Inside Llewyn Davis," on December 6th.
