Our Interview with Oscar-Winning Composer Dario Marianelli

On the challenge of jumping into the Transformers franchise by working on the “Bumblebee” movie score:

“Challenging? Utter terror, rather. The only thing that made me relax a little was director Travis Knight’s support and trust, and his insistence that we would not have to reference the musical world of the other movies. In fact, if we were to reference anything, we were attempting to have some echoes of the Amblin spirit back in the 80s: something I felt was not totally out of my reach. Eventually, it became apparent that we needed not to abandon a more modern approach to electronica and sound design in the music, and I think it turned out to be one of my most synth-heavy scores.”
