I love collaborating because I come from the world of being in bands.
The library companies have made it so that music is so cheap to license. They do sound-alikes of every band, and it makes it harder for the actual bands to get any decent paychecks for licensing.
'Auto Music' isn't a pop record by any stretch.
To me, 'Auto Music' wasn't work. It was in-between work.
I approach horror music differently than anything else. The very first time I watch an episode, I want to be playing an instrument to it so I can get that shock into the show.
An orchestra can add some class, a historical vibe, but I believe you can get the same emotion from pottery wheels.
