Mac Power Users #551: Writing Music for the Picture Business, with David Metzger →

We had a really cool interview this time on Mac Power Users:

David and Stephen are joined by orchestrator and composer David Metzger, whose resume includes Frozen, Muppets Most Wanted, The Avengers, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and more. He shares his setup, which includes multiple Macs networked together, numerous music applications and (eventually) a full-blown orchestra.

I had always assumed that the music creation process for films was intense, and it was super interesting to hear more about it.
