the final product. But Pierce Brosnan is back in a spy role and
hopefully the music is supporting that. It’s more of an action-y
type score. There’s nothing really that unusual about what I did for
it. There’s some guitar stuff that we recorded here but most of the
rest of it is strings, brass, percussion and synthetic elements. I
guess it’s a conventional score."

"This is such a crazy
year with really varied projects. THE GIVER is a teen drama based on
a popular book, and THE HOMESMAN is a period drama that we recorded
outside and created aeolian harps and a water tank piano for. They
are currently shooting GODS OF EGYPT. From what I understand it is a
4-6 month shoot and then they’ll be in post for a year before we
score! That must mean a massive amount of visual fx!! Anyway, Buck
and I saw some of the storyboards because we had to come up with
some music for them to shoot to, and apparently it was in the right
direction. I’m really looking forward to this one."
