Tonight I was going to conduct my first interview with a non-composer for SoundtrackNet. Pete Anthony is one of the top conductors and orchestrators in the business, and works with Danny Elfman, James Newton Howard, Christopher Young, John Debney, Marco Belrami, and John Frizzell (just to name a few). The drive to Malibu took about an hour, and given the darkness of the hour, finding his house was a little more difficult than planned. Nonetheless, I got there right on time, at 7:30pm.
The interview went well, and now I need to type up the 45+ minutes (whee!) and put it up on the site later this month. Should be a nice tie-in with Treasure Planet, which Pete helped orchestrate and conduct.
