Composer Nathan Johnson’s work spans a wide variety of genres, from low-budget film noir to high-budget sci-fi. He’s played in many different types of media (and with many types of instruments, as when he invented new ones to write the innovative score for Brick), so I was excited to see him try something more conventional by tackling the score for Rian Johnson’s new murder mystery, Knives Out.
True to form, the score for Knives Out is a delight. As with Johnson’s other work, he manages to infuse the old and the new, blending classical orchestral string instrumentation with a jazzy sensibility. Today, we are pleased to be able to bring you an exclusive track from the film. Below, you can listen an exclusive track from the film’s score.

Listen to the Taylor Swift Cats song below and see what you think. Read More »
