One of your early projects was working on Neil Blomkamp’s breakthrough DISTRICT 9. Did you know when you were composing for it that the movie was something special?
You have several irons in the fire these days: COLONY, CODE BLACK, and the second season of THE EXPANSE isn’t far off. How do you go about balancing the musical styles of different projects all at once?
Fortunately, they didn’t all happen at the same time. For the first seasons it wasn’t too tough, but there was some overlap. It was refreshing to be able to shift gears throughout the year.
You have had several projects in both action and sci-fi. Is there something about those genres that you are drawn to?
I’ve always had a soft spot for Sci-fi, but ironically DISTRICT 9 was the first Sci-fi movie I ever scored. Since then I’ve been offered more, so it’s been pretty great.
You have worked in both film and episodic TV, what do you like about composing for each and what are some of the challenges?
Who are some of your musical influences in film or TV?
What’s the next thing that you are working on?
Well I have the second seasons of CODE BLACK, COLONY and THE EXPANSE coming up so I’m just prepping for that at the moment, but I hope to do a film before then.
