Isobel Waller-Bridge talks about living and working with her sister, Phoebe, in the second of our special episodes with Scala Radio. The composer talks about
life in lockdown, Fleabag, Vita and Virginia and composing electronic scores for period film and TV.
She’s joined by Anne Nikitin, who scored the award-winning film American Animals. The two compare notes about their experiences in a male-dominated field, and their conflicting thoughts about being labelled ‘female composers’. They also explore the difference between Hollywood and Britain’s film industry.
Anna’s third guest is an Emmy and Academy Award winning composer who has been scoring blockbuster films for over two decades: Rachel Portman. Rachel describes working with Mike Leigh on Life is Sweet, Lynne Ramsay on Ratcatcher and gives a fascinating insight into her working life, from indie movies to big budget Hollywood. This is a must-listen for anyone interested in music and film.
