Coming up: two composer interviews

Hey everyone, so as of yesterday I have completed two composer interivews, the first was with Scott Doherty, the composer for Orange is the New Black (an enlightening experience) and the second was with composer/orchestrator/performer Paul Henning, who, among other things, orchestrated The Force Awakens, performed in the orchestra that recorded Moana, Frozen and Rogue One and is currently scoring a documentary about George Foreman.

I learned SO much from these two composers and my appreciation of the film scoring process has risen to an entirely new level. I also learned a lot more about the actual recording process, and for the first time I think I thoroughly understand the scoring process from beginning to end.

Hopefully the first interview will be up early next week, as I will be spending this week transcribing the audio. But for now, here’s a little tid-bit that I learned from Paul Henning that blew my mind: when orchestras record for film scores? They’re completely sight-reading, which means no rehearsals, they’ve never seen this music before.

I can’t wait to share everything I’ve learned with you, until then, have a great Monday!!

There’s just about a week left to sign up for the 2nd Annual Remembering James Horner Blogathon here , it should be a great time!!
