Lakeshore Records sat down with composer Robb Williamson on his score for Midnight Meat Train (credited as Robert Williamson & Johannes Kobilke).  He spoke about his transition into the film music world and being inspired by the murderous character, “Mahogany,” on this horror score journey.  You may remember his score for the acclaimed film, Gamer (co-composed with Geoff Zanelli), and if you haven’t seen both movies — Midnight Meat Train (rent it on iTunes) stars Bradley Cooper (Burnt, American Sniper) and Vinnie Jones (TV’s “Arrow”, Snatch), and is based on a short story by master of horror Clive Barker — we predict good times ahead for fans of dark films!

Shapiro is certainly one of the more eclectic and individual musical voices in Hollywood and his score for Trumbo is a good example of his capabilities. There are elements of the period mixed in with some audacious modern ingredients, including one of my favorite sounds in all of music, the prepared piano (he explains what that is in the video). – Score Keeper, Birth.Death.Movies
