Joel J. Richard-Episode 164

Today, Matt welcomes innovative film composer Joel J. Richard to Talk For Two.

Richard has composed many scores for film and television, notably for ABC’s Quantico and both films the John Wick series.

In an expansive interview that lasts just shy of an hour, Richard opens up about his love for composing music. He discusses how he became interested in the unique genre. Plus, Richard gives Matt a peak inside his process. Heres a hint: it involves technology, instruments, and naps.

They also delve into the process of composing both John Wick films. The movie series has gained a large following, thanks in part to the feel of the comedy-thriller series given by the score.

John Wick Chapter 2 will be available on Digital HD platforms Amazon and iTunes on May 23rd. A hard-copy release will follow on June 13.
