I’ve always been a fan of the sci-fi genre. I was a massive Star Wars fan as a kid (hell, even as an adult, I wrote and performed in a sitcom version of Star Wars at the Edinburgh Festival!), and as any self-respecting synth lover, I have huge admiration for Blade Runner.
So it’s a huge pleasure to know that some Omnisphere sounds of mine have been used on the score of a recent sci-fi hit, Passengers. And it’s even more fantastic to know that a Thomas Newman soundtrack would have some of my noises on it. Thomas is undoubtedly one of the finest, modern day film composers around.
A big thanks to Thomas’ long-time collaborator (and talented sound designer and musician himself), Steve Tavaglione, for letting me know about this.
