Since we are huge fans of horror soundtracks, when the opportunity presented itself to get an interview with composer Wandmacher, we jumped at the chance. Wandmacher is the composer of one of our favorite scores, Cry Wolf. But he has also done a lot of work in the horror and sci-fi genre, as well as just about all other genres out there.
I’ve been a fan of movie music, so I figured I knew a little bit about it. But after this interview, I was amazed how little I really knew about the process. Plus, it doesn’t hurt when the composer is a big fan of the horror and sci-fi genres to begin with. That just made the interview even more interesting for everyone.
This interview was conducted on Dec. 13th, 2008.
