I do not subscribe to or rad the Hollywood Reporter (despite having a certain fascination with film), but I caught this particular interview over at imdb.com. It is a roundtable interview with five composers, identified as being front runners for this up and coming Oscar competition. I am not as interested in the Oscars, but I do have a love of good music, and notably for music made for film.
I found the interview interesting. Among the two most notable participants are Danny Elfman (official composer for all things Tim Burton) and Howard Shore (composer for The Lord of the Rings trilogy). One interesting note that they bring up is that while directors, writers, and actors all seem to congregate together, work together, and meet regularly, composers generally do not. I guess that collaborative education is not a big part of learning to compose. 😉
