Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy-winning composer Howard Shore joins us for a short chat about his new score to the film Funny Boy. Directed by Deepa Mehta, Funny Boy is a character-focused coming-of-age story set amongst the backdrop of the Sri Lanken Civil War.
Howard talks about how he got involved with the film, and how he took a light approach to the score to make sure the music worked with the picture. Howard discusses working with director Deepa Mehta, he goes over how the film was spotted, and he talks about the thematic structure of the score. Funny Boy is currently streaming on Netflix at the time of this interview. Howard also talks about some of the projects he has coming up on the horizon.
We end our chat with one of the most pressing questions that Howard needed to answer: Who would win in a band battle, Howard Shore And His All-Nurse Band or Howard Shore And His All-Bee Band?
*Due to Howard's busy schedule we only had time to discuss his most recent score.
