Lakeshore Records President Brian McNelis recently had the pleasure of speaking with GRAMMY®-nominated composer extraordinaire Nico Muhly. They discussed Nico’s stunning score for Pachinko, the concept of involuntary music and Nico’s dream to design new sounds for cars and public transit; composition for concert music versus TV and film; the practicality of solving the hardest problems first; establishing a vocabulary of trust with your team; creating Wagnerian themes versus a fluid score in constant flux; the invaluable music conservatory lessons about the golden triangle of how to hear music, see it, and be able to play it; working with the great Phillip Glass, and so much more.
