Playlists in Person: Study to Steve Jablonsky


Jacob Koefelda, Staff Writer

Steve Jablonsky is not a composer to shy away from variety. The scope of movies of which he scores ranges from Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th to The Tigger Movie and, of course, the Michael Bay’s Transformers. Regardless of your views on the franchise, Jablonsky’s work Transformers demonstrates the level of thematic complexity he will infuse into a film via the soundtrack. In perfect contrast to the dauntless, noble, and action packed themes behind the Autobots is the use of the Decepticons’ theme inserting a musical conflict between opposing characters. While enjoying your complex math homework tonight, enjoy the complex rhythms scored by Steve Jablonsky.
