Film Score Stratigraphy: Jack Reacher

There’s only so much you can learn and dissect about a film score without talking to its composer, and even then you can only go so deep in a 30–45-minute promotional interview. I’ve always wanted to peel back the layers of a score with its composer, and trace the music’s evolution from imagination to realization on the scoring stage. I’m obviously fascinated with this peculiar little art form, and I’ve always found the gems of insight from composers about their craft—their method of composing, the way they choose to respond to picture, their artistry, the often brilliant conceptual reasons for musical decisions, their collaboration process with directors—to be infinitely rewarding, digging beneath the visceral thrills and joys of the music and discovering the intelligence and clockwork inside.
