It’s an industry that may appear to be tucked behind the curtains in lieu of the frontline actors, directors, and special effects of a project, but it remains consistent in its positioning. No matter how often the entertainment industry evolves over the years, there is always a need for a musical score to guide the end product to success. SOUNDTRACK NATION: INTERVIEWS WITH TODAY’S TOP PROFESSIONALS IN FILM, VIDEOGAME, AND TELEVISION SCORING includes interviews with representatives from every facet of the art and business sides of soundtracks, including composers, musicians, vocalists, music producers/ distributors, public relations representatives, journalists, and even the fans themselves. These interviews offer rare insight about the business for individuals who are seeking to get into the industry and those already in it. Whether you’re a budding composer looking to make strides in the field, a musician who wants to participate in recording film music, or a future publicist or manager, you’ll find great resources here. But you can also approach the book as pure entertainment--the interviews are a fun and informative way to connect with your favorite scores and movies. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
