I don;t generally work with other composers but if I had to say I would like to work with Thomas Newman, Gabriel Yared, Gustavo Santaolalla to name a few. -dl

I think maybe the love scene with Trinity and his wife in the Bathtub is my favorite. Very twisted love theme. I go on set sometimes. Mostly to help if there are musical questions. Jon and I played in the wedding scene at the end of season two. Look for us.

I almost always have a piece of film to compose to. Occasionally especially in video games I will be given a script or story treatment to work to because the pieces aren't done yet, but I will almost always check it against final picture. The main theme for Dishonored I wrote before the game had even been animated. My assignment was to help them pitch the project by creating a menu theme. -dl

Yes I did play through Homecoming to get a feel. And I looked at walkthroughs which are very helpful for checking out the atmosphere if the gamer isn't talking too much!

Thanks for the compliments. I am hoping there will be more Dishonored and I will be involved.

It's great to have my music attached to great projects. and it is fun to play and hear my music.

I use logic with a 12 core mac pro- lots of Kontakt instruments - alchemy omnisphere - VSL - Sam all of them. I find the best sound for a scene. and record live! even if its a melodica. I got my break doing student films which led top my first films.

In my deadlines :) I usually key in on the mood of the scene or try to get an overall feeling for what i want the project to feel like in a musical sense.

Really glad you enjoyed Honor For All! I did play Dishonored. It's a great game. It's really cool to see my music attached to a great game like Dishonored and a great show like Dexter. It's really surreal and I'm really happy to have the opportunity to contribute to these amazing projects. -JL
