Composer Aldo Shllaku sits down for a great conversation about his score to the star-studded comedy The Comeback Trail! We discuss his childhood, his family having to escape communism, planting roots in a new country, finding his passion for music, and how he decided to go into composition.
We talk about Aldo's early days of his career, and how he got his foot in the door working with Christopher Young. Aldo also shares why being mentored or being part of a music team is the best education someone can have in the industry.
Aldo goes into great detail about working with writer/director George Gallo, and what goes into their lasting collaborative relationship. We also discuss how he approached scoring the comedy with a full orchestra with 100 musicians from around the world, and why the score needed to be thematic while homaging the classic sound of Hollywood. You can check out Aldo's score, which is out now!
Aldo shares so much insight here fueled by his passion for music and movies!
