    Episode 212: Ewan McGregor On The Music Of Long Way Up & His Films

    Episode 212: Ewan McGregor On The Music Of Long Way Up & His Films

    Our guest on this latest episode of Edith's screen music podcast Soundtracking is an actor known for his roles in Shallow Grave, Trainspotting, Velvet Goldmine, Little Voice, Brassed Off, Star Wars and ... well, the list goes on and on and on.

    Ewan McGregor's latest project sees him reunited with his good friend Charley Boorman for Long Way Up. Available now on Apple TV, Long Way Up accompanies the pair as they attempt to motorcycle all the way from the bottom of Latin America to Los Angeles - on electric Harley Davidsons! It really is a wild and hilarious adventure - and Edith is absolutely loving it.

    The show features some brilliant tunes too, from familiar rock and pop to songs specific to the countries through which Ewan and Charlie travel. We also find out the unlikely band that he had in his headphones under his helmet ...

    Episode 211: Harry Gregson-Williams On The Music Of Mulan & His Career

    Episode 211: Harry Gregson-Williams On The Music Of Mulan & His Career

    Our latest guest on Soundtracking is a hugely entertaining composer who has worked on tens and tens of movies, TV shows and video games.

    Among Harry Gregson-Williams's many credits are an apprenticeship under Hans Zimmer, a long-term working relationship with the Scott brothers, the Shrek series, and an unlikely collaboration with Trey Parker and Matt Stone on Team America. The story behind how that came to pass is hilarious, by the way.

    His latest project is the live action animation remake of Disney's Mulan, which is based on classic Chinese folklore and tells the story of a girl disguised as a man who becomes a great warrior. And you can watch it on Disney + right now!

    Episode 210: Ludwig Göransson On The Music Of TENET, Black Panther & Childish Gambino

    Episode 210: Ludwig Göransson On The Music Of TENET, Black Panther & Childish Gambino

    Our latest guest on Soundtracking is a composer I've been trying to pin down for yonks - so often has his name been mentioned on the podcast.

    Ludwig Göransson is best known for his work with Childish Gambino, Ryan Coogler, on Disney's The Mandalorian and most recently the Christopher Nolan blockbuster TENET. And for all the wrong reasons, it's fitting that we speak to him now, given he won an Oscar for his score to Black Panther.

    Edith recorded this interview before we learned the tragic news about Chadwick Boseman, who died of cancer last week aged just 44. But given Ludwig's connection to the film, it seemed only right we paid tribute to its star. Thus you'll also hear an extract from Episode 77, in which Marvel executive producer Nate Moore recalled a lovely story about how Chadwick was cast in the film.

    Then, of course, there is the usual smattering of Ludwig's music at relevant points throughout the conversation.

    Episode 209: Tim Roth Discusses The Music That's Featured In His Career

    Episode 209: Tim Roth Discusses The Music That's Featured In His Career

    We love a good actor on this podcast, and we have a seriously good one for you in our latest episode in the shape of Tim Roth.

    Tim's credits are too numerous to list, but he can currently be seen in the thoroughly gripping pulp crime drama Tin Star on Sky. 

    He's also worked with Quentin Tarantino on several occasions, and had the honour of meeting Ennio Morricone too. 

    Edith takes a deep dive into his career and the music that's featured in it along the way.

    Episode 208: Glen Ballard On The Music Of The Eddy & His Career

    Episode 208: Glen Ballard On The Music Of The Eddy & His Career

    You may not know Glen Ballard, but you do know Glen Ballard. For Glen is a songwriter, lyricist and producer who's worked with some of the biggest names in the business, including Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, Anastacia and Alanis Morissette - with whom he co-wrote Jagged Little Pill to great critical acclaim and commercial success. 

    His latest project sees him team up with Damian Chazelle (among others) for The Eddy, which centres on a jazz club in contemporary Paris. Not only was the Netflix series Glen's brainchild, but he also wrote all of the songs for it with composer and pianist, Randy Kerber.

    As well as playing plenty of music from the show, Edith also drops a couple of classics from his illustrious career.

    Episode 207: Terence Blanchard On The Music Of Da 5 Bloods, Perry Mason & Spike Lee

    Episode 207: Terence Blanchard On The Music Of Da 5 Bloods, Perry Mason & Spike Lee

    We have a proper legend for you on our latest episode of Soundtracking in the shape of virtuoso trumpeter and composer, Terence Blanchard.

    A well-established jazz musician in his own right, Terence was given a break scoring Jungle Fever by Spike Lee, for whom he's subsequently become the 'go-to' guy. Malcolm X and The BlacKkKlansman are just a couple of the movies they've joined forces on.

    Their latest collaboration is Da 5 Bloods, which you can watch now on Netflix. He's also just provided the music for HBO's Perry Mason - with the score for that available via our good friends at Water Tower Music.

    As ever, we'll sprinkle plenty of Terence's music throughout the conversation, so sit back and enjoy.

Love this podcast !

Brilliant podcast, fun and informative. Edith has a lovely way of engaging without being intimidated by the musicians.

I would love to hear Max Richter on the music for the HBO series “My Brilliant Friend”.

👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

This show is such a lovely behind-the-scenes look at film scores via a very relaxed and natural chat with the composers themselves. Thoroughly enjoyed. The Isobel Waller-Bridge episode was an absolute tonic. 👌🏼

Ryan MovingViolationz ,

Great Hans showcase!

Thank you for showcasing Hans Zimmer's wonderful music from the film. Jon's a knowledgeable filmmaker and I'm glad he used Hans in the new movie.
