Season 1 Episode 9 | John Powell, The Inside Track with Dr. Siu-Lan Tan & Name That Score


DON'T MISS OUR BONUS CONVERSATION AVAILABLE TO PODCAST SUBSCRIBERS.​​

Score: The Podcast welcomes composer John Powell, Academy Award nominated composer of How To Train Your Dragon and How To Train Your Dragon 2, the Bourne franchise of films, Shrek, Antz, Happy Feet, Ice Age series, Rio, and many more.

Robert and Kenny begin the show talking about Deadmau5’s new comments about wanting to become a film composer and how often popular recording artists can cross over successfully. Robert gives examples of artists who’ve broken out into film music success immediately, including Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg), Daft Punk and Joseph Trapanese and others.

Then John Powell enters the studio to talk about his new score for Solo: A Star Wars Story and working alongside John Williams. Plus, the groove of the Bourne series and why Powell says he thanks “Matt Damon’s backside” for making the music work.

A new episode of The Inside Track with Music Psychologist Dr. Siu-Lan Tan explores the musical foundation of film scores and how rhythms of twos and threes are the building blocks for great music.

Then John and the guys talk about How To Train Your Dragon and sitting next to Hans Zimmer when Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ The Social Network beat him for the Academy Award. Plus, his approach for getting multiple cues “spinning” until the last minute on an animated film where things can change until the very end, and his work with Blue Man Group and Rio.

Lastly, John and the guys play an animated film score edition of Name That Score, where you — yes, you! — could be a winner! Plus, John teases the unique sound of vuvuzelas he recorded for Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Hosts: Robert Kraft and Kenny Holmes.

Executive Producer: Matt Schrader.
