Composer Max Aruj sits down for a brand new Film.Music.Media conversation!
From getting his start working on Lorne Balfe's team to scoring hit thrillers like Crawl (co-scored with Steffen Thum) and his recent score to The Tank, Max has quickly stood out for his incredible versatility and unique voice as a musical storyteller.
For this chat we explore Max's background and path to composing, getting his foot in the door, working with Lorne Balfe, early lessons learned, branching out and scoring films on his own, finding his storytelling voice, and co-composing some projects with Steffen Thum.
For The Tank we look at what it takes to successfully create tension and score a creature feature, and why we as a society love the genre so much!
