Paul Haslinger On Film Composing

Posted in Advice, Composers, Interviews by Higher Density Blog on July 10, 2013

ArtistsHouseMusic·2,298 videos

In this clip from http://www.artistshousemusic.org – Equally adept at computer generated music and classical orchestral elements, Paul Haslinger has established himself as a unique musical voice in the world of feature films. Classically trained in Salzburg and Vienna, he eschewed his classical roots to become a member of the pioneering electronic band, Tangerine Dream, in which he left his distinctive fingerprint on four highly successful albums and several films, including ‘Miracle Mile’, ‘Near Dark’ and ‘Canyon Dreams’, which earned him a Grammy nomination. Upon venturing out on his own, Haslinger had three critically acclaimed solo albums and scored two ground breaking animated science-fiction films, Planetary Traveler (1997) (V) and Infinity’s Child (1999) (V), for director Jan Nickman. He honed his film scoring skills for several years as the programmer for ‘Graeme Revell’ , providing the musical textures and atmospheres for such movies as Blow, The Negotiator (1998), The Siege (1998), Pitch Black (2000) and Tomb Raider, to name just a few.
