Interviewing Brian Tyler at PMCSeptember 10, 2015 at 12:55 pm
Yesterday was a fun day at the Directors Guild of America building on Sunset: The Production Music Conference invited me to collaborate with composer Brian Tyler on a “keynote address” that was really more of a Q&A about his music and his career. We opened with a spectacular five-minute montage of his big movie scores (including Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, the Fast and the Furious franchise and others). The Q&A was wide-ranging, covering his rise from small indies to huge studio films; his love of drumming and piano, which he still does himself on many scores; and how he runs his business. About 300 composers and music publishers attended.
