Return to: Home / Exclusive Interviews & Profiles


ALAN ARI LAZAR (composer / music producer) Podcast with Alan Ari Lazar (Gangster’s Paradise: Jerusalema, TV’s Sex and the City) regarding his scoring work, and the founding of the Film & TV Music Library site [MP3 file archived at Big Head]



CHRISTOPHER LENNERTZ (composer) Composer Christopher Lennertz discusses his Emmy-nominated score for Supernatural, writing dynamic music within the tight scheduling of a successful TV series, and his completed scores for Tortilla Heaven, and Shark Bait.



ANTHONY LLEDO (composer) When Sweden’s first vampire film, Frostbite, premiered at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival, audiences also got their first exposure to the film’s versatile composer, Anthony Lledo. Lledo’s music was a wonderful treat for genre aficionados, and film music fans in search of a refreshing voice in symphonic film composition. In our Q&A interview, Lledo describes the uniqueness of his breakthrough score, and his position in being one of the few Scandinavian composers whose work is slowly reaching international audiences.



ANDREW LOCKINGTON (composer) Composer Andrew Lockington discusses scoring Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012), the 3D sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008). plus his 3-week term researching ancient tribal percussion in the jungles of Papua, New Guinea.


ANDREW LOCKINGTON (composer) Way back in 2001, Andrew Lockington was orchestrating Jeff Danna’s exquisite score for The Kid Stays in the Picture (2002), and in the passing years he’s made the transition to composer, scoring a number of TV and theatrical projects, but New Line’s expressive Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D (2008) may be his best work – a richly harmonic, classically written fantasy/adventure score that is happily available as a downloadable album in North America, and as a CD and MP3 album via Europe’s Silva Screen. In our follow-up interview, the composer discusses his second big orchestral score of 2008, City of Ember.



JOSEPH LODUCA (composer) Joseph LoDuca’s current project is writing the funk / jazz music for TNT’s hit caper series Leverage, and in our lengthy conversation he describes the intricacies of crafting the show’s addictive, rhythmic sound.



JAYE BARNES LUCKETT (composer) Canidid, humorous and affable, Jaye Barnes Luckett has the right instincts to compose and perform music that transcends genre limitations, and in the primary works showcased in her CD – May, Sick Girl, The Woods, and Roman – she demonstrates a balanced use of original score and songs, and shows a rare gift in combining two components of a film that, when composed by disparate talent, often battle for dominance in the final mix: the original score, and songs.
