Cast and Crew

How did you meet Sean S. Cunningham?

I met Sean through a mutual friend of Steve Miner's. My friend, Gary Templeton is also film maker, and I have scored all of his Children's Films. At the time, Steve was the film editor for Sean, and Sean was making a Children's film.

I subsequently scored that film "Here Come the Tigers", and then another "Kick" before we embarked on "FRIDAY 13th".

Growing up, who did you admire most musically?

Now that's a great question. I was influenced on two separate fronts. Italian Opera, and Jazz. That was playing a lot in our house, and my brother played a lot of Stan Kenton, which influenced me a lot. People say they hear a lot of Kenton in my music. When I got to college, I was introduced to the rest of the world of music. That's when I began to really get into Stravinsky, Bartok, Copland, Hindemith, Webern, Berg, Schoenberg, Ravel, Boulez, Berio, Foss, and a myriad of other composers.

Of course, where would House be without that chilling opening cello theme? The music to House has long remained a favourite score of mine for it's intensity, it's memorable themes, and the way it fuses comedy and orchestral instrumentation, with horror and synthesised nightmarish sounds.

You can find a detailed description and actual downloads from the score at the Soundtrack & Score section of Roger Cobb's House.
