diabolical

I’ve taken a long break from the podcast but I’m back and in style with a really great discussion with composer Austin Wintory, who is the perfect podcasting guest because he has so many stories and is such an eloquent speaker. Wintory has just released a reimagining of his Journey soundtrack called Traveler. He re-composed the entire score and recorded it with the London Symphony Orchestra. It’s beautiful and brilliant and a wonderful way to celebrate Journey’s 10th anniversary. This is a public episode.

Interview with Austin Wintory - Part One

Cinematic Sound Radio - Soundtracks From Films, TV and Video Games

Welcome to another of our special continuing series of film, TV and video game composer interviews on the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO PODCAST NETWORK. On the program today, film and video game composer, Austin Wintory. Austin grew up in Denver and from the age of 10 was utterly addicted to film music. After teaching himself to compose, orchestrate and conduct in high school, he went on to study classically at NYU and USC. Following a whirlwind education in which he scored well over 150 student and small independent productions, he graduated and began working full-time in Los Angeles. In 2012, Austin’s soundtrack for the hit PlayStation3 game JOURNEY became the first-ever Grammy-nominated videogame score, also winning two British Academy Awards, a DICE Award, a Spike TV VGA, and IGN’s “Overall Music of the Year,” along with five Game Audio Network Guild awards, and a host of others. Excerpts from the score have been performed all over the world since its release, including by such ensembles as the National Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Colorado Symphony and Pacific Symphony. Austin’s score for FLOW made him the youngest composer ever to receive a British Academy Award nomination and also won him a wide variety of other game industry accolades. An orchestral version of this music has been performed at the Smithsonian Museum as a part of their “Art of Games” exhibit. Austin has also scored nearly 50 feature films, and his first major film score, for the Sundance Film Festival-winning film CAPTAIN ABU RAED, was shortlisted for the 2009 Academy Awards for Best Original Score by the LA Times. His next major film, GRACE, was also a hit at the Sundance Film Festival. Austin’s score, was also highly lauded, earning a notorious Fangoria Chainsaw Award nomination. His most recent films are writer/director Adam Alleca’s STANDOFF, starring Thomas Jane and Laurence Fishburne, and Amin Matalqa’s THE RENDEZVOUS, starring Stana Katic. Passionate about education, Austin is a regular public speaker at schools and events around the world, in addition to pre-concert talks and workshops. He also serves on the Board of Directors for the non-profit Education Through Music – Los Angeles, as well as the Board of Directors for the Society of Composers and Lyricists.

Cat Stevens vs. Boards of Canada (feat. Austin Wintory)

CrossFade: The Dueling Album Review Show

Composer Austin Wintory (Journey, ABZÛ, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, The Pathless, The Banner Saga, and countless other games and films) is one of the best-known names in video game music – but he didn’t know anything about music for the first ten years of his life. He brought Yusuf/Cat Stevens’ 1970 hit record “Tea for the Tillerman” to CrossFade because it reminds him of his dad, and of learning music, and of the pure emotional statements that can be made through musical storytelling. Matt’s pick, Boards of Canada’s “Music Has the Right to Children,” lets listeners find the story in between the samples, tones, patterns, and soundscapes the Scottish duo packed it with back in 1998. It was an early statement in the hauntological electronica movement that wrenched music from the world around them, reassembling sounds in a way that suggests melody and form without quite standing out.
