A Score to Settle

A Score to Settle Podcast

I was recently interviewed by the podcast A Score to Settle, which is a podcast and blog about music composed for film and TV. The show notes are:

In this episode, I am joined by talented composer, songwriter and music producer David Das. We talk about his background in studying music, arranging and composing and how George Gershwin’s inimitable concert work “Rhapsody In Blue” provided him so much inspiration and direction. Other topics include writing music for all forms of visual media (trailers, games, dramatic projects) as well as his efforts as president of the non-profit group The Academy of Scoring Arts, which is an organization devoted to the study of influential classical, jazz and film music and is also a way for creatives in the industry to network. Lastly, we discuss various concert classical works, from Mozart to Debussy to Schoenberg and Stravinsky, and their collective influence on movie music, both compositionally and philosophically. You can find David and his work at http://daviddas.com and The Academy of Scoring Arts at http://www.academyofscoringarts.org. As a side note, there are few electronic glitches that crop up very briefly in this episode, so my apologies in advance!

An amazing synth deconstruction of @tearsforfears's Everybody Wants To Rule The World. I miss the synths of the 80's and bring them back whenever I can. https://t.co/cXaKd8DnuS

Any of my LA friends have guitar repair places to recommend? My wall mount fell, and my Gibson electric hit the floor. :( Body's fine, but the pickup is out of place.

Well, the air quality is poor and I can't go outside so I guess I'll just upgrade to 128GB RAM instead. https://t.co/WwUEyxpnvz daviddas photo
