Melodic Trek 83: We Don't Drive Expensive Cars / by Brandon-Shea Mutala

Matthew Hightshoe Interview.


In the eighties and nineties, buying a soundtrack usually meant an album full of hit songs that were used in a film, and every once in a while, you would get a track or two of the score included. Some labels would release an album of only score music, but, due to the costs involved with licensing the music, these albums would usually be 30 minutes in length. Over the last two decades, many new film labels have emerged and begun to release rare scores, and usually complete scores for films. But how do these releases come to be?

In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala interviews Matthew Hightshoe about his upcoming documentary. We talk also talk about the quipment he uses to conduct the interviews, crowdfunding, favorite composers, and his process of pre-interviewing guests.
