Film Music Fridays - Episode 18

Spy Game (2001) by Harry Gregson-Williams


We are back with the most recent episode of Film Music Fridays, narrated by CineConcerts President, Producer & Conductor Justin Freer! In this week’s episode, Justin talks about Harry Gregson-Williams’ incredibly dynamic score that combines electronic, orchestral, and ethnic themes for Tony Scott’s 2001 American spy film starring Robert Redford and Brad Pitt. After watching this episode, one will gain an appreciation for the wide range of composing styles Gregson-Williams applies not only to this film, but his entire repertoire.

Harry Gregson-Williams has regularly written for video games, television and films, such as the Metal Gear series, Spy Game, Phone Booth, Man on Fire, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Déjà Vu, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Martian, and the Shrek franchise. He is the older brother of composer Rupert Gregson-Williams.
