It’s not often that film music is intelligently discussed – or discussed at all. In a way this is understandable as, if the music is doing its job, it often doesn’t register as a discrete element. However, those interested in how film is put together might like to delve a little. In this week’s edition of The Film Programme, film composer Neil Brand discusses, at the piano, Jonny Greenwood‘s score for The Master. What’s particularly interesting – in addition to his inventive bespoke music – is the use of ‘found music’.
Also very interesting is a chat with Chris O’Dowd about his latest projects.
