KQEK.com -- Interview with film composer Rob Simonsen

Since his debut in 2003 with the indie film Westender, Rob Simonsen has evolved into a composer in his own right with credits spanning a diversity of genres in film and TV, but his formative years were spent learning the intricacies of composing, collaborating, and the realities of the film scoring business with Canadian composer Mychael Danna.

With the Oscar for Best Original Score going to Life of Pi this past February, Simonsen’s career will further flourish, and in our discussion he describes his entry into film scoring, and the chance meeting with Danna which provided an important entry into Hollywood, and has resulted in several important collaborations including 500 Days of Summer(2009), Moneyball (2011), and the TV series Dollhouse (2009-2010).

Simonsen’s recent solo work includes TV’s Battleground (2012) and the films The Way, Way Back and The Spectacular Now (both 2013).

Released by on Sony Classical, the music from Life of Pi is available from various online vendors.
