Season 1 Episode 6 | Steve Jablonsky, Behind the Score: Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross & Name That Score

April 24, 2018

​​Score: The Podcast welcomes Steve Jablonsky, award-winning composer of Michael Bay films such as the Transformers film franchise, The Island and Pain & Gain; Peter Berg films such as Battleship, Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon; Keanu; Netflix's Game Over, Man; and the upcoming Dwayne Johnson summer blockbuster Skyscraper. He is also the composer of television shows such as Desperate Housewives and video games including Gears of War: Judgment, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, The Sims 3 and Transformers: The Game.

 

Robert and Kenny begin the show discussing Ready Player One and how Alan Silvestri's score samples iconic music from the 1980s, true to the story's nostalgic subject matter. Silvestri is also scoring Avengers: Infinity War which releases this Friday. Robert shares a story about a mistake he made with Ennio Morricone and Warren Beatty while recording a score with a full orchestra in Rome.

 

Steve Jablonsky joins to talk about his work with Michael Bay on five Transformers films, The Island and Pain & Gain — and how Bay communicates his elaborate visual style and explosions, sometimes before the special effects even exist. 

 

In Behind the Score, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross discuss how David Fincher led to a thriving career scoring films after being in the recording and live performance industry with Nine Inch Nails.

 

Then Steve talks about the first cue with his name on it — "The Jablonsky Variations" from Tears of the Sun — and how Hans realized then Steve was destined to become a great film composer in his own right. 

 

Lastly, Steve and the guys play a sports movie edition of the game “Name That Score,” where you — yes, you — can be a winner!

 

Hosts: Robert Kraft and Kenny Holmes.

Executive Producer: Matt Schrader.
