As we prepare for our upcoming issue this Winter titled Dystopia, we are honored to wrap up 2012 with an interview with Looper composer Nathan Johnson.
[Looper - movie by Rian Johnson - came out this past Fall 2012 and it’s a time-travel dystopian story available on itunes now]
“So I found that for me, that ‘risk-nature’ comes from wanting to try to do something and realizing that there are restrictions that won’t allow you to do it the way everybody else does it. So then, you have to just go for it and try to still make something with what you’ve got.”
- Nathan Johnson
I love Amanda and Spirited Magazine! Looking forward to their next issue.
Some great extras on both versions, but the blu will have 17 deleted scenes versus just a few on the DVD. I didn’t count it up exactly but I think it’s about 40 minutes of stuff. Also included is a commentary track I did with Joe and Emily, Zach Johnson’s animated trailer in glorious HD, and Nathan Johnson’s vignettes on creating the score. We’ve also hidden a student short on there again.
This Sunday afternoon I’ll be on East Village Radio to do the very cool Morricone Youth show with Devon Levins. Devon is dedicating the entire 2-hour show to us, so this may be the most in-depth (and music-heavy) interview yet. We’ll be chatting and listening to a LOT of stuff from Looper as well as selections from my other projects. They’re planning to feature almost an hour of music. Cool, eh? So if you’ve got a chunk of time and want to listen to snippets from the last 10 years of my musical life, tune in!
