What’s Inside 258
Herdis Stefansdottier (https://www.herdisstefansdottir.com/) talks about composing the music for the FX on Hulu show “Y: The Last Man”, adapted from the Brian K. Vaughan graphic novel.
Michael Kramer (https://www.michaelkramermusic.com/) talks about composing the music for the Netflix kids show “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe”.
0:00 SEGMENT 1: Herdis Stefansdottir talks about how intimidating it was to tackle the music for a show that will last multiple seasons, feeling lucky that the producers liked her reel, leaving law school for music, missing performing live, whether her parents always supported her artistic pursuits, and begging her family for piano lessons when she was 8.
12:53 SEGMENT 2: Herdis Stefansdottir (https://www.instagram.com/herdisstef/) talks about feeling overwhelmed in music school, being inspired by other female composers, where she hopes her career will be in 5 years, whether she wants to be a teacher, and what advice she’d give to aspiring composers.
21:09 SEGMENT 3: Michael Kramer (https://twitter.com/KramerComposer) talks about owning Castle Grayskull as a kid, updating the sound of a classic 30+ year old show, and what it’s like knowing his music will stick with kids for the rest of their lives.
28:52 SEGMENT 4: Michael Kramer (https://soundcloud.com/kramercomposer) talks about whether he was nervous about working on He-Man, working on Lego Ninjago for 14+ years, growing up in his dad’s woodshop, whether his work ever feels finished, his thoughts on Netflix’s other He-Man show, and whether the voice actors effect the music he composes.
41:23 SEGMENT 5: Michael Kramer talks about how difficult it can be to compose unique themes for all the different characters, composing music for Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge for the Disney theme parks, which instrument makes him feel the most like He-Man when he plays it, the next Lego Star Wars special, and maybe being too sensitive for social media.
