Geektown Podcast 04: Interview with Multi-Emmy Award-Winning Composer Trevor Morris
On this latest podcast, I talk to Multi-Emmy Award-Winning Composer, Trevor Morris, who has scored a huge array of music for TV, film and games.
His film work has taken him from the heights of Mount Olympus in ‘Immortals‘, to the White House in Gerard Butler’s blockbuster ‘Olympus Has Fallen‘. His game work ranges from the hard driving action of EA’s ‘Need for Speed: Carbon‘, to a more sedate drive through ‘Sim City‘, and into all out war in ‘Command and Conquer‘. His TV work has taken him through scifi, fantasy and horror with ‘Alphas‘, ‘Moonlight‘, and ‘666 Park Avenue’, and all over historical Europe, with ‘Vikings‘ (currently airing on LoveFilm), BBC’s ‘The Tudors‘, and Sky Atlantic’s ‘The Borgias‘.
From his studio in Santa Monica, Trevor’s ‘violent, yet elegant’ work has made him the most Emmy-nominated composer in the last 2 years, and he’s hoping to add to his current 4 Emmys and 2 Gemini Awards with his recent Emmy-nomination for the season finally of ‘The Borgias’.
In 2012, Trevor brought his music to fans all over the world, starting with participating in The International Film Music Festival of Cordoba in Spain. At the Festival, guests and fans from all over the world gathered to listen to several symphony concerts celebrating the best scores composed for film and television. In September 2013, he’s planning on repeating this experience at the Krakow Film Music Festival, where he will also be holding masterclasses.
Later in the year, 300-plus members from the World Soundtrack Awards nominated Trevor as Discovery of the Year for his work on “Immortals,” which took place in Ghent, Belgium. His music was also celebrated on a fan favourite Comic-Con panel last year, as well as at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, which held an event in honour of Morris’ body of work.
