KQEK.com -- Interview with film composer Jeff Toyne (2013)

Since his debut in 1999 with Maxwell's Demon, Jeff Toyne's scored a diversity of feature films, gliding between studio (Hall Pass) and independent visions (Abel's Field), and working steadily as an orchestrator - most prominently for mentor Brian Tyler on the Final Destination films.

In our interview, Toyne discusses his collaborations with Tyler, and scoring Rogue -  DirectTV's first foray into original programming, starring Thandie Newton and Marton Csokas.

In Seaon 1, Toyne's music (set for a commercial release later this year) is both strategic and stealth, fluidly gliding between each episode's sound design and the profanity-laced dialogue. The fragmented life and identity crises of central character Grace - undercover cop by day and night, barely functional mom when time permits - is nicely complimented by an incomplete theme which periodically expands and recedes as Grace experiences the extreme vicissitudes of her quest for rogue justice.

Also available: a 2014 interview with Toyne on the horror film The Privileged, and a 2007 print interview regarding one of his early film scores, Shadow in the Trees.
