The Truman Show is the original soundtrack, released on the Milan Records label, of the 1998 Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning film The Truman Show starring Jim Carrey, Ed Harris, Laura Linney, Peter Krause and Brian Delate.
The film was directed by Peter Weir, who stated that he selected music that the creator of The Truman Show itself, Christof, would have chosen. Based on the fictional Christof's musical taste, Weir selected music from composer Philip Glass, and recruited the young Australian composer Burkhard Dallwitz to complement those tracks with a score of his own.
The original score was composed by Burkhard Dallwitz, and the album won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score in 1998. The majority of tracks contained on the album were composed by Dallwitz, with other tracks selected from Philip Glass compositions, among others.
"Anthem - Part 2" was taken from Powaqqatsi, "The Beginning" and "Living Waters" were both taken from Anima Mundi, and "Opening" was taken from Mishima, all of which were soundtracks composed by Philip Glass. Glass also composed the original tracks "Dreaming of Fiji", "Truman Sleeps" and "Raising the Sail" for the film.
