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.

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.

Episode 40: Michael Apted

When you list the films that Michael has worked on over the years, not only is it hugely impressive but vastly diverse. A gentle and charming man to spend with who talked with such warmth and enthusiasm about his work. As we hit our 40th Episode of Soundtracking, it’s an honour to share it with such a talented man.

Episode 39: James Gunn

If anyone knows how to use music to maximum effect on screen it’s James Gunn. For James is the man behind both Guardians Of The Galaxy films, which are as celebrated for their hugely successful Awesome Mixes as his sharp, fun and witty interpretation of the Marvel franchise.

Episode 38: Warren Beatty

I say it at the start of this weeks podcast that he needs no introduction, Mr Warren Beatty. He’s been in the industry for such a long time but from the very start saw the importance to be part of the production, not just in it. We only really skimmed across his massive body of work but It’s a start. I hope you enjoy.

Episode 37: John Ridley

It was hard to know where to start with Writer, Producer, Director John Ridley, he’s a creative carousel. An award winning one at that. His new project Guerrilla was a pretty good place to start, that led onto so many wonderful insights and opinions. I hope you enjoy listening.

Episode 36: Ben Wheatley Part 2

It was an honour to have Ben Wheatley as our first ever Soundtracking guest in August last year. His new film, Free Fire, is fantastic, it’s funny, loud, and packs a punch in more ways than one. He’s also pulled in Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury to do the score, just one of the things we caught up about.
