Trevor Rabin Strikes Chord With Collaborators


Trevor Rabin

“He can do just about anything,” producer Jerry Bruckheimer says of composer Trevor Rabin. “That’s what you want: a composer who’s creative, who understands the musical rhythm and language of scenes, how to bring out the emotion that the director and actors were striving for.”
It was Bruckheimer who discovered Rabin’s facility with sports movies. “He can write those great anthems, those triumphant melodies that every athlete would love to hear as he’s making the last basket or the last goal or the last touchdown. It’s something that’s innate in his talent.”
Bruckheimer is not the only filmmaker to sing Rabin’s praises. Jon Turteltaub, who directed the “National Treasure” films, laughs about their initial musical encounter: “He played us a bunch of music with scenes. I so despised the instrumentation he used, I looked at him and said, ‘This sounds like European porn!’

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
