We have an opportunity to interview Trevor Rabin. If we have enough questions from you we will proceed with it.

Quote:
Get Smart's film composer Trevor Rabin has established himself as a leader in both Rock and film music. As a founding member of the band Yes, he penned hits songs including "Owner of a Lonely Heart." As a composer he has written such visceral scores as Armageddon and Remember The Titans. He is more than simply a musician. In his native South Africa, he toured with an Anti-Apartheid band challenging the government. Okay as talented as he is, Trevor continues to broaden his range. He has scored the upcoming Get Smart movie. When the director asked him, "What do you know about writing music for comedy?," Trevor responded, "I scored Steven Seagal movies." Also, he will be performing next month in the Canary Islands (June 23 - 29th) with several film composers as part of the Tenerife Film Music Festival.

Ok, so I'll set the ball rolling:

If you could recommend one of your scores for someone to listen to for the first time, what would it be and why?

If you could have written the score for any film (including ones you have scored) which would it be and why?

Which other composer do you most admire and why?

When you begin writing music for a film do you have ideas for themes before you see footage or do the themes come from the images?

How would you like your music to be remembered?

Is there a director you want to work with, but have not worked with before?

*Borrowed from one of my other interview questions*

The digital age has had an enormous impact, for better or worse, on the music industry. What are your thoughts on digital media and their effects on the composition, production, and distribution of music?

What are the similarities and differences (philosophically, emotionally, practically) in the way you approach composing a pop tune vs. an orchestral piece?

On that note, please, please contribute questions, folks. These are tremendous opportunities SST has to interview these composers, but it's up to US to contribute!

*BUMP!*

I'm disappointed to see that we haven't added any questions here since 5th June! Has this opportunity now passed us by?

You have collaborated with some other composers earlier. How did that come about? Were you asked to collaborate or did you propose collaborations? Would you collaborate again with someone in the future?

How quickly do you normally work?
How much time is usually provided for composing a score for a feature film?

Do you draw inspiration from some periods of the history of music?

Do you get any feedback from film music fans? If yes, what kind?

You have composed for big orchestras but is there any one instrument you especially like and try to use or would like to use more in your work?

What made you decide to score films rather than play guitar in a band?

Did the experience of playing guitar for Yes help or hinder your work in films?

Which film did you find hardest to score?

How have you found scoring films when you have worked collaboratively with other composers (like Armageddon)?

You said in a recent interview that you gravitated towards films that provide opportunities to write heroic or memorable themes. Is that something you would like to move away from as your career develops?

What genre do you like most for composing the score?

If there is a vocal song needed in a movie, who do you want for singing that song?

Thanks for the attention to this, Sirius, but the interview questions have already been sent to Trevor Rabin.
Now waiting for his reply. Very Happy
