While researching (read: googles how to become a film music curator), I found an interview on YouTube that piqued my interest. The interview was with Mary Ramos, best known for her film music supervision (a job title I never knew existed) on eight of Quentin Tarantino's films! What an eclectic music selection such to strong films. In the film Django, there’s a scene of Rick Ross singing over a period piece about plantation owners and slaves. The juxtaposition was perfect and the music made the film feel relevant and now. There was a closer connection to the story even though the subject of the film may have been hard to relate to.
After watching quite a few interviews of Mary, I instantly knew I wanted a job in her space. The idea of marrying music and film is perfect for my skill sets. I am passionate, hard working and innovative. My brain is 90% song lyrics. I know a great song/band when I hear one. Importantly, I understand that a song does not get a full play so the most crucial 10-25 seconds of a song must be selected. It means poring over a catalog of music then doing micro grafting. Music surgery if you will, luckily already in the health care field. - Mars
Some of the instrumentals written by Martin Gore of Depeche mode (One of my fave bands) I think would be good for some soundtracks.. some of his later tracks are quite haunting, mellow... tracks like Sibeling, Agent Orange, To have and to hold, Memphisto, St Jarna, Zenstation,Esque, Slowblow, Painkiller.. Pimpf (for horror).Am surprised he has not written any soundtrack yet.
