Ep 52: Clint Mansell

He is part of the reason I make this podcast and I am eternally grateful to Clint for his time and honesty when talking through just some of his wonderful work. I very much hope that this is just the first chapter that we get to do over the coming years. I know that I felt like we only scratched the surface. I hope you enjoy listening.

Ep 51: David Lowery

It’s still very early days in the career of David Lowery but what he has done with his new film, “A Ghost Story,’ is to make one of my films of the year. A touching and powerful look at human existence and how that transcends time and emotions and relationships. And that’s not even the half of it. The score to this film is divine and I had a blast chatting to him about this and his other works.

Ep 50: Sarah Bridge

Happy 1st Birthday to us. It seems fitting that we explore the wonderful world of the music supervisor with the fabulous Sarah Bridge. She’s worked across a number of hugely impressive and creative productions and it was a total pleasure to pick her brain and find out more about a role that definitely doesn’t get the recognition or celebration it deserves. I hope you enjoy.

Episode 49: Luc Besson

What a charming and infectious enthusiasm this man had. A total joy to talk to him about his new project but also hugely grateful for the insight he gave me into some of my favourite films. The Big Blue, Leon and recently Lucy. I hope you have as much fun listening to Luc as I had chatting to him.

Episode 48: Sofia Coppola

Here we are then, a real dream come true getting time with Sofia to talk about her incredible films and music. I’m such a huge fan and kind of geeked out in front of her but I hope you enjoy the results. Her latest film, The Beguiled is out now and thoroughly deserving of her Palme d’Or.

Ep 47: Edgar Wright Prt 2

I can’t thank Edgar enough for finding the time in his crazy schedule to talk to AGAIN. This time about his fantastic new film Baby Driver. He’s raised the bar and changed the dynamics of how contemporary music is used within the framework of a movie. Already looking forward to Part 3.

Baby Driver, the new film from Edgar Wright is bloody brilliant. He told us in his last Soundtracking Ep that we needed a whole session just to talk about the music in it. He wasn’t wrong. And with that comes some perks of the job.

Ep 46: Nicholas Britell

Barry Jenkins fabulous film Moonlight is out now on all Home Ents formats. I had the absolute pleasure of talking to composer Nicholas Britell about working on this film but also as part of the team on 12 years a slave with Steve McQueen. Top bloke, incredible talent.

Episode 45: Nick Broomfield

There is a very specific style to the films from Nick Broomfield, he’s brave and funny and as I discovered very much lets the film lead the narrative. A total joy to sit and listen to his stories, I hope you enjoy hearing them in this weeks new episode.

Episode 44: Alice Lowe

I have been desperate to share this one with you. Been a huge fan of Alice for many years. Her work on Sightseer both writing and starring is incredible. Her directorial debut film, ‘Prevenge,’ which she also wrote and starred in whilst 7 months pregnant is brilliant. Welcome to Soundtracking Alice, it was a joy to sit down and chat with you.

Ep 43: David Michod

I remember watching Animal Kingdom and being really impressed with everything about the film. David Michod was someone I wanted to see and hear more from. Then came, ‘The Rover,’ a dystopian tale of survival with fantastic performances from Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson and perfect scoring from Antony Partos. When I heard David had teamed up with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis to work on his new film, ‘War Machine,’ I immediately started hyper ventilating. Thankfully that subdued by the time I got to sit down with David.

Ep 42: Guy Ritchie

Look up the word Geezer and you more than likely find Guy Ritchie under it’s definition. I find him utterly tantalising and fascinating and very very funny. It was a lot of fun to catch up with him and talk about King Arthur Legend Of The Sword and working with Daniel Pemberton again.

Ep 41: John Madden

John Madden is a hugely successful film maker, his 1999 film Shakespeare in Love won 7 Oscars. One of those was for best Original Music for Stephen Warbeck. And Stephen is just one of a number of fantastic composers that John has worked with over the years. A relationship he feels it utterly central to the film making process.

I’ve had the pleasure of chatting to John Madden a number of times over the years so it was great to catch up and talk specifically about music. Which you will realise when you put up the full interview on Friday, he has not only a massive passion for but also is incredibly knowledgable.
