Five Questions with Steve Molter

Jasha Klebe is a film and TV composer, former professional gymnast, and a childhood opera singer. Some of his career highlights include The 84th Annual Academy Awards, Winter on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom, Diana: In Her Own Words, and BBC's Planet Earth II which he co-composed with Jacob Shea, and has worked closely with one of my personal favorite composers of all time, Hans Zimmer.Jasha invited me to his home studio in West Hollywood and we chatted about collaboration, what it feels like to leave home with a mission, parallels between sport and art, how being in love with music makes him a little bit crazy, and the motivation of creation. He was also kind enough to give me a bottle of wine which was absolutely delectable. And of course I asked him Five Questions. Meet Jasha.
