In a lengthy yet awesome interview conducted on Noisey, legendary horror director/composer John Carpenter opens up about scoring a lot of the films he worked on, including Halloween, Big Trouble In Little China, and more.
When asked what score was the most fun, Carpenter replied, “I really enjoyed working on the score for Big Trouble In Little China—that was a lot of fun. Additionally I enjoyed the Prince of Darkness score, some of the later scores I did were really fun. When you have everything all hooked up, you have the film in front of you and the synths and you have a choice of sounds. That’s the most fun.”
It’s a really interesting interview as it delves into the mind of Carpenter from an angle that doesn’t get a lot of notice. You can read it at the above link.
