    More Score #58 | Pinar Toprak (Thursday Night Football)

    Composer Pinar Toprak dives into her performance with Billie Eilish and Finneas at the Oscars, and her process creating a theme suite for the NFL and Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime Video. Then, why the music for SLUMBERLAND is some of the most personal she’s ever written. Interview by Kenny Holmes and Matt Schrader.

    More Score #57 | Gabriel Mann (A Million Little Things, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series)

    More Score #57 | Gabriel Mann (A Million Little Things, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series)

    Composer Gabriel Mann talks through his decision to leave Pre-Med in college to become a musician — and why his parents fully supported him. Then, how working with David Schwartz led to him leaving composer altogether — and why David brought him back to collaborate on ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT. Later, we talk about writing lyrical melodies for A MILLION LITTLE THINGS, why Disney's musical machine is so vast, and a top-secret musical stage play in the works now (based on an 1980s classic) from Gabriel's band, The Rescues, coming in 2023. Interview by Matt Schrader.

    More Score #56 | Tyler Strickland (Edge of the Earth)

    More Score #56 | Tyler Strickland (Edge of the Earth)

    Composer Tyler Strickland breaks down his career journey from touring rock musician to Emmy-winning composer of documentaries like HBO Max's EDGE OF THE EARTH and many more. He shares his love for rock climbing, which helped him relate to the extreme-sports athletes that he scored in EDGE OF THE EARTH, and talks about mixing the score for his first film at legendary Skywalker Ranch (which karmically led him to other scoring opportunities). Interview by Robert Kraft.

    More Score #55 | David Newman

    More Score #55 | David Newman

    The great David Newman has been scoring memorable and iconic films since the mid-1980s, and after his own prolific career has found himself being a part of a unique world — live film music concerts. From conducting John Williams concerts at the world-famous Hollywood Bowl, to conducting orchestras live-to-picture at Walt Disney Concert Hall, David has stumbled into a world of new opportunities. We talk about why film music concerts feel more like rock concerts than classical ones, and why experimenting with the performances can trigger massive audience responses. This is everything you wanted to know about the experience of seeing a film music concert! Interview by Kenny Holmes and Matt Schrader.

    More Score #54 | Henry Jackman (The Gray Man)

    More Score #54 | Henry Jackman (The Gray Man)

    Composer Henry Jackman joins to talk about THE GRAY MAN, his musical relationship with the Russo brothers, how the birth of his son during the pandemic changed his perspective, and what kind of obsession it takes to truly make something meaningful. Interview by Kenny Holmes and Matt Schrader.

    More Score #53 | Dave Palmer (The Greatest Beer Run Ever)

    More Score #53 | Dave Palmer (The Greatest Beer Run Ever)

    Composer Dave Palmer breaks down his Dallas-based recording artist career journey that culminated in his home studio in Ojai, California, and meeting Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Farrelly to score THE GREATEST BEER RUN EVER starring Zac Efron. Dave talks about the key to a piano cue packing a heart-wrenching punch, meshing original score with songs of the Vietnam War era, and why this film feels different tonally than any other you’ve seen before. Interview by Kenny Holmes and Matt Schrader.

My favorite podcast!!

I stumbled into this podcast, and it has quickly become my favorite!! I am a fan of movie scores, and each episode has intrigued me, even when I am not at all familiar with the episode guest. Every guest has a unique story, background and perspective, and the show hosts bring it all to the air. I cherry picked episodes at first—now I am going back and catching up on all seasons, not skipping a single one!!
Keep up the great show!!

“More” Score?

I used to really enjoy this podcast. But they’ve completely abandoned it in favor of the paid version “More Score.” It feels weird to have something called More Score when the actual Score podcast doesn’t exist anymore. I hope they go back to producing episodes of Score The Podcast and turn More Score back to the thing it was intended to be - bonus material and additional interviews to supplement the free podcast.

Disappointed Huge Fan with Hope

I am a huge fan of the show for sure. The guests are amazing. I’ve mostly enjoyed the hosts when they dive deep into the heads, processes and passions that help us understand the people behind the music, their personal and professional lives, inspirations, gear, and studio life. However, since we are now paying for this podcast, there seems to be less and less each month in regards to the rich content that they once offered, both in frequency and length. Also, they may have pioneered this topic very well, including the awesome documentary, but now there are many great podcast out there discussing this very topic with a variety of composers from all genres and disciplines, including many successful indie composers. Not a fan of paying for less. I hope they go back to more substance that paved the way for this format. I don’t write many reviews, but because I loved this show so much, I feel it was necessary before canceling my subscription or at least pausing to make room for some of the other great podcasts out there.
