My guest this week is Jim Hustwitt, who quit his marketing job in 2011 to work as a music producer and composer.
Since them Jim has produced music for Universal, EMI, BMG WestOne & NinjaTune and has been commissioned to write music for the BBC, Sky 1 and Channel 4.
He’s also walked the boards of the National Theatre and London’s West End.
During the interview we talked about shifting from being a singer-songwriter to composer, the approach to writing trailer music, battling the temp score, how many composers get fired and no one ever hears about it, and much more.
I spoke with Jim via zoom from his studio in the UK.
On the intro I’ll take a look at a new approach to artist videos, and the plan to preserve digital music for 10,000 years in the Global Music Vault.
