Tyler Bates and the Genre of Doom!  Interview
Tyler Bates and the Genre of Doom!

In our latest interview - Composer Tyler Bates talks about his recent project DOOMSDAY, paying homage to classic genre films from the 80s, his upcoming video game score, RISE OF THE ARGONAUTS, and two more film projects: THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL and WATCHMEN. - plus 3 sound clips from DOOMSDAY.

Here's an excerpt:

CC: With DOOMSDAY paying an homage to MAD MAX and ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, did it any pressure on you.

TYLER BATES: That, in and of itself, didn't add any pressure, but there is something interesting here. Because I tend to do films that span a broad scope of stylistic components or cultural components, I tend to approach them not always knowing exactly what I'm going to do. The pressure is really for me to find what is going to work this particular movie. I can't really look at other movies that might be considered classics. I can't compare what I'm doing or about to do with those films. There's no way I can compete with that. There are just so many great, historical scores that have come before my work. I don't expect to "best" any of those. I try though! [laughs]
