The new website of this talented composer was launched recently and features hours of samples from his works both old and brand new, classical and film... I'd say that his score for BIG ASS SPIDER is definitely a highlight of his career and is both beautiful and funny. Check it out. Anyone already familiar with Torjussen's work?
It's always fun discovering new composers, and this guy seems indeed like one to watch.
Those BIG ASS SPIDERS cues are really fun, even if the ensemble sounds like it was augmented by samples at time. The military march and it's dirge-like rearrangement for that final cue is where it's at!
Glad you like it... Big Ass Spider is fairly low budget movie, so it is quite a suprise it has anything at least close to orchestral score and sounds this good... not to mention that half of the score is quite burried in the mix and some of it wasn't even used...
Torjussen used to do some excellent additional music for Marco Beltrami on scores like Repo Men, Die Hard 4, Underworld: Evolution. He also orchestrated for Beltrami for many years. Have heard his score for The Undoing. He's very talented. Looking forward to Big Ass Spider.
