Composer Jim Hustwit, Music Videos Are Dying, And The Global Music Vault On My Latest Podcast
My guest on the podcast 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 and 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.
