Start the Music 032 – Christopher Tyng (Composer)



 

This episode I’m excited to be joined by Christopher Tyng, composer for TV shows such as Futurama, Suits, Rescue Me as well as movies and video games. We talk about instruments (what’s a boobam?!) used in the music of Futurama and how the musical tone was established and we discuss the “death” of record labels and the seeming lack of gatekeeping. We’ll open with the Futurama theme, throw in a Cowmen track and close with a couple songs from Suits.

Welcome to the World of Tomorrow, everyone!
