We're headed into the time of year when all of the sweeping epics, historical dramas, and Oscar contenders start making their way to the screen. And some of your are likely excited about some of these big releases because of the grand trailers Hollywood has been pumping out over the last couple of months. Part of getting you hooked in, of course, is the score accompanying the trailers.
Composer and producer Yoav Goren is one of the people responsible for making sure that music works its magic over you. An Emmy-winning musician and president of Immediate Music, his work has shown up in trailers for everything from "Carlito's Way" to "Lincoln" to Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit".
With selections from Goren and Immediate's music getting collected in "Trailerhead: Triumph," we thought we'd talk to this veteran composer about his 20 years in the industry, why superhero movies are tricky, and the secret to the perfect epic score.
