This week it’s a slightly different show as i’m on my own. So to make up for that we have, not one, but two interviews!
First interview is with Ratchet & Clank composer Evan Wise. The animated feature is based on the famed action-oriented video game series, and follows the adventures of Ratchet (a feline-like character who is a mechanic) and Clank (a diminutive, sentimental robot) as they travel through the universe fighting evil forces. Rosario Dawson, Paul Giamatti and John Goodman star in the Kevin Munroe directed flick.
Ratchet & Clank is Evan’s first feature, and the self proclaimed “traditional symphonist” used a traditional orchestral approach to bring out the nuance of the characters while staying within the genre of an animated family film. The Ratchet and Clank Movie soundtrack, which is now available, guides listeners through the story with a fluid sonic palette that will has you on the edge of your seat with action one minute and overcome with emotions the next.
The Second interview is with Emmy and Grammy nominated Fargo composer Jeff Russo. Jeff has been on the show a number of times before, and we had a chance to catch up with him about his work on Fargo Season 2 (soundtrack is available here on Amazon, and here on Spotify), and on Fargo Season 3 which will star Ewan McGregor. We also talk about his work on Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s Power (now on Netflix), and the mini-series Tut, which aired on Channel 5 in the UK. Jeff is also worked on the pilot for Time After Time, one of the new shows to be picked up by ABC, about H.G. Wells pursuing Jack the Ripper in modern day New York.
In this weeks show:
- Interview with Ratchet & Clank composer Evan Wise.
- Interview with Emmy and Grammy nominated Fargo composer Jeff Russo.
- As usual, all the latest tv air date updates, and a look forward to tv in the next 7 days.
