I think that's one of the things that has always put me in kind of an odd niche. It's that all of my understanding of orchestral music is via film, not via classical music like it's supposed to be. To me it's the same, it doesn't make any difference.
J Bryan Bowden is an American multi-instrumentalist, session musician and composer. Working with a wide variety of artists, he has recorded for Warner Bros, Universal Music Group, Polygram Records, Mercury Records and countless independent record labels. He's also worked with such notable producers as Rick Rubin (The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, Tom Petty), Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala) and Norm Kerner (Faith No More, Alainis Morissette, The Grassy Knoll and Jewel).
He now focuses his time on video game scoring, film scoring and film trailers. Understanding the importance of sound to help create a vision…he works very hands on with the studios to help achieve that vision.
His approach to film scoring is working closely with the director’s vision to invoke a certain emotion or mood for a scene. When the final touches of the music are complete, the reward is seeing the project’s full potential with both the visual and musical elements working in tandem to create an amazing experience for the viewer.
