Personal Quote:

There's just too much music in movies, almost always more than I think there should be. It's either lack of confidence on the part of filmmakers or a tradition of scoring things. It's always better to have less than to have more. See more »


Has composed scores for all the Coen Brothers' films - except Inside Llewyn Davis (2013). See more »
