Composer Interview: Christopher Lennertz (September 26, 2013)

September 14, 2017

The always great Christopher Lennertz chats about some of his newest scores like Thanks For Sharing and Revolution. Thanks For Sharing is a drama about sex addiction, but it also has a lot of light life moments. It's a film that will make you laugh and cry at the same time so we discuss all the challenges that came with it. It's also a deeply psychological film requiring a lot from the score to get into the head of the characters. We discuss in depth the psychology of film music. Especially how composers need to be able to analyze characters well in order to know what the music needs to do in order to evoke an emotional connection. Chris shares how 20 years ago he wouldn't have had the life experiences needed to be able to properly write a score like Thanks For Sharing, and how living life is the best way to become a better storyteller. We also discuss Revolution and what his method and approach is for a huge broadcast drama. A truly fascinating and insightful interview with an amazing composer. It was great to chat with Chris once again.
