Composer Interview: Steven Price (October 18, 2013)

September 14, 2017

*NOTE: Spoilers, including the film's ending are discussed in this interview.

Steven Price may be a relatively new composer, but his score for the critically-acclaimed Gravity shows that he is a master at building a sonic narrative. We chat about how he got his start in the business and what ultimately led him to being hired for Gravity. Gravity's technical complexity provided great challenges and Steven shares how he and director Alfonso Cuarón approached what they wanted to achieve. We discuss the restraints the score needed to have, the emotional draw of the characters and how the score needed to act as more than just the score but as an integral anchor of the whole sound design. A fascinating interview with a composer who has proven his amazing abilities early in his composing career.
