Remembering Wes Craven

adminNotes from Marco

I was very saddened to hear the tragic news. Wes Craven gave me my first break in the film scoring business with his movie “Scream” and really acted as a mentor in the early part of my career. His calm, quiet confidence inspired me to explore ideas that I probably wouldn’t have otherwise, and he taught me the psychological role that music plays in manipulating an audience.

Wes was a master at understanding the emotional state of his audience, getting inside their minds and leading them down unexpected paths; teetering between the lines of fear and humor, outrageous and commonplace. I feel his influence on every film I work on, and when I’m in a bind I often say to myself, “What would Wes tell me at this point?” For me, Wes Craven’s presence is eternal.”
