KQEK.com -- Interview with film composer Darius Holbert

Composer Darius Holbert discusses his entry into film scoring, composing the music for Jason Eisener's grisly and fun Hobo with a Shotgun (2011), the sounds of vintage synths, scoring the series Quick Draw (2013) in the domain of original programming by online film / TV providers, and the music of Oh, the Places You'll Go! (2012), Teddy Saunders' clever translation of Dr. Seuss' final book.

Special Thanks to Darius Holbert for his generous time and candor, and Shoshie Aborn at Big Picture Media for facilitating this interview.

KQEK.com -- Interview with film composer Jeff Toyne

Busy composing music for TV series such as DirectTV’s Rogue, Jeff Toyne’s latest project is the suspense film The Privileged, his third score for writer / director Leah Walker.

The film score also offered Canadian composer Toyne a plum opportunity to score a film set in his home province of Ontario, and use its premiere at the Canadian Film Fest in March of 2014 to discuss the recent talks regarding an alliance between the Canadian Directors Guild and Composers Guild.

The soundtrack to The Privileged is available as a digital album from Jagged Edge Music. Also available: a prior interview with Jeff Toyne discussing the music for Season 1 of Rogue.

Special thanks to Jeff Toyne for making time during his busy schedule, and Chandler Poling at White Bear PR.

KQEK.com -- Interview with film composer Ronen Landa

In early February, composer & musician Ronen Landa spoke to KQEK.com about his latest scores: the comedy Cavemen(2013), and Home (2014), his second feature film score (after The Pact) for horror director Nicholas McCarthy.

Landa’s skills extend to scoring comedies, dramas, documentaries, and horror, but one of his major influences remains Ennio Morricone, whose work with the famed Gruppo di improvvisazione nuova consonanza inspired the more experimental aspects of Home.

Songs and two score cues from Cavemen are available from Lakeshore Records, whereas Landa’s Home will be released later this year. His prior score for director McCarthy, The Pact, is available from Moviescore Media.

Special thanks to Ronen Landa for his time, and Beth  Krakower at CineMedia Promotions.
