I couldn’t help but expect a film score that was inspired by Jan Hammer’s music from “Miami Vice” or a variety of electronic scores that were very popular at the time. But the film’s composer, Chris Hajian, ended up creating something much more modern, and it acts as Robert’s conscience as he sinks deeper into a world of crime he may not get out of alive. – The Ultimate Rabbit
Composer Chris Hajian talks to The Ultimate Rabbit about his modern take on an ’80s-era synth score for The Infiltrator, directed by The Lincoln Lawyer‘s Brad Furman. Based on a true story, the film takes place in the 1980s, as Bob Mazur (Bryan Cranston) goes undercover to take down Pablo Escobar’s Medellín cartel. Read the full interview here.

He builds actual string arrangements (not synthetic) into the mix. It’s a daring piece of composition for the synth heavy piece and lends an organic, human layer to the darkness… Hajian’s music throbs and pumps and washes its way through waves of synths and beats, but never loses sight of that humanity.” – Cut Print Film
