KQEK.com -- Interview with film composer John Debney

John Debney is one of the few composers able to drift between various genres and apply his gift for strong themes and craft either richly melodic orchestral works or large-scale works featuring orchestral dissonance with deft touches of electronics.

Although he's been scoring film and TV projects since 1980, he's perhaps best-known for the hugely successful score for Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ (2004), plus a long string of popular comedies (Liar Liar), family films (The Ant Bully), sci-fi (Predators), and horror (I Know What You Did Last Summer), and the release of The Call features a unique fusion of heavy electronica and light orchestral elements for Brad Anderson's 2013 thriller.

In our podcast, Debney also disscusses his classic horror score for The Relic, recently released in an expanded CD by La-La Land Records, and the Emmy Nominated music for Hatfields & McCoys, co-composed with Tony Morales (also interviewed), and released by Silva Screen Records.
