Season 1 Episode 13 | Mychael Danna, The Inside Track & Name That Score

June 12, 2018

 

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

 

Score: The Podcast welcomes Mychael Danna, Academy Award-winning composer of Life of Pi, and a film music pioneer known for his cross-cultural blending of musical stylings for breakout hits, including Monkeyball, Little Miss Sunshine, The Good Dinosaur, 500 Days of Summer, The Ice Storm, and nearly 100 other film and television scores.

 

Robert and Michael begin the show talking about the new Halloween trailer, why the horror genre isn’t generally as widely respected for its music, and why some directors want to score their own movies.

 

Mychael Danna comes in to discuss Ang Lee stumbling into his music and collaborating on The Ice Storm, a score Elmer Bernstein originally slammed. Then Robert and Mychael recall working together on Life of Pi, and how Mychael was nearly fired before Robert and Mychael added a “shaker” sound to the score, and later won Danna his first Academy Award for Best Original Score. 

 

In The Inside Track, music psychologist Dr. Siu-Lan Tan breaks down how sound design, including the “cocktail party effect,” can alter our perceptions in film and television, using examples from several classic films.

 

Then, Mychael talks about working with his brother Jeff Danna, and how they complement each other’s styles and approaches, and the music of The Good Dinosaur.

 

Lastly, Mychael joins Robert and Kenny to play a “Academy Awards” edition of Name That Score, where you — yes, you — can be a winner!
